Two new papers from RATE
Even though the RATE programme is now over, there is still plenty of research being published and expected to be published soon.
Two new papers were accepted last week from the RATE programme:
First from LO-RISE a paper examining Metaschoepite dissolution and the implications for uranium speciation and transport published in Environmental Science and Technology. The findings from this study highlight the potential for uranium (VI) colloid production from uranium (VI) solids under reducing conditions and the complexity of uranium biogeochemistry in dynamic systems.
The second paper, from the TREE project examines an alternative approach to the concentration ratio model for human food chain and wildlife. This paper provides the first demonstration of the REML model, which reduces the uncertainty when compared to the CR approach and gives reasonable predictions.
