  Applications of isotopes and radiation for improved technologies in the fields of food and agriculture, industry, health care, water resource management, and environmental protection have been benefiting people. The IAEA promotes these applications through internationally co-ordinated research programmes and technical cooperation programmes.   Ionizing radiation is very useful for preservation of agricultural and food products. Many products used in our daily life have in some way benefited from radiation during their production.

Abstract. This book discusses advances and applications in industry, hydrology, agriculture, and medicine. Topics covered include radiation processing, nucleonic systems for industrial quality control, isotope radiography for non-destructive testing, application of radiotracers for trouble-shooting in processing plants, and radiological protection. Applied Radiation and Isotopes is a peer-reviewed scientific journal published by was established in and its scope covers applications of ionizing radiation and radionuclides.. The current editors-in-chief are Richard P. Hugtenburg (Swansea University) and Brian E. Zimmerman (National Institute of Standards and Technology).Discipline: Nuclear, radiation and radionuclide techniques.

Radioisotope Center in Graduate School of Agricultural and Life Sciences had been renewed at Tracer work using isotope for agricultural study had started as early as the s, mainly in the fields of plant nutrition and fisheries. Over the last century, nuclear science and technology have contributed immensely to almost every social and economical sector and in virtually every corner of globe. Radioisotope is one of the tools for studying nuclear science. The radioisotopes have numerous applications in medicine, agriculture, industry and .

Description Tracking Animal Migration with Stable Isotopes, Second Edition, provides a complete introduction to new and powerful isotopic tools and applications that track animal migration, reviewing where isotope tracers fit in the modern toolbox of tracking methods.

In agriculture, radiation and radioisotopes are also used in the nutritional studies of trace elements, mechanism of photosynthesis, plant protection including action of insecticides, metabolisms in plant, uptake of fertilizers, ions mobility in soils and plants and food preservation. The work begins with a simplified explanation of atomic structure, radioactivity and the nature and production of isotopes.

A number of general topics such as the dangers and difficulties associated with their use and their effects on living systems are discussed, the biological effects being interpreted on the basis of the molecular changes induced by radiations, though it is pointed out that Author: H.

Radioactive isotopes and enriched stable isotopes are used widely in medicine, agriculture, industry, and science, where their application allows us to perform many tasks more accurately, more simply, less expensively, and more quickly than would otherwise be possible.

This chapter presents a brief introduction to radioisotopes, sources and types of radiation, applications, effects, and occupational protection. The natural and artificial sources of radiations are discussed with special reference to natural radioactive decay series and artificial radioisotopes.

Applications have played significant role in improving the quality of human by: 2. Both radioisotopes and enriched stable isotopes are essential to a wide variety of applications in medicine, where they are used in the diagnosis and treatment of illnesses.

This report focuses primarily on these medical uses and those in the allied life sciences, but isotopes also find wide. Applications of stable and radioactive isotopes in soil science Article in Current science 98(11) June with Reads How we measure 'reads'.A radioactive isotope, also known as a radioisotope, radionuclide, or radioactive nuclide, is any of several species of the same chemical element with different masses whose nuclei are unstable and dissipate excess energy by spontaneously emitting radiation in the form of alpha, beta, and gamma rays.

Every chemical element has one or more radioactive isotopes.Stability depends on composition of nucleus. Stable isotopes DO NOT undergo radioactive decay.

Unstable (radioactive) isotopes can easily undergo changes, transforming them into other isotopes of the same or of different elements. Unstable isotopes undergo radioactive decay.
