The paper provides actual clear information about viruses and coronaviruses, including SARS-CoV-2, the possibility of contamination of surface water and wastewater by this virus.

Water recreation in Prague from history to the present days

This article is available in Czech only. For translation or more information on this topic, please contact author.   Souhrn Náhled do historie ukázal, že rekreace u vody, jako záliba k trávení volného času, byla odedávna rozšířena i v Praze, kde byly velmi oblíbené, dnes již zaniklé, říční plovárny. Na historický průzkum navázal v projektu „Možnosti vodní rekreace na území… Read more »

Determination of low level tritium concentrations for tritium tracing applications

Past tests of nuclear weapons in the atmosphere, nuclear energy facilities and tritium of natural origin are main sources of tritium in the environment. Thanks to its presence in environment and its favourable properties, tritium is used as a radiotracer.

Development of selected radionuclides in surface water in the vicinity of the Temelín Nuclear Power Plant in the period 1990–2016

The paper presents results and interpretation of long-term monitoring of occurrence and behaviour of radioisotopes 3H, 90Sr and 137Cs in surface water in the vicinity of the Temelín Nuclear Power Plant. 3H, 90Sr and 137Cs originate predominantly from residual contamination due to atmospheric nuclear weapons tests and the Chernobyl disaster in the last century.

The paper sums up the legislative framework and cooperation of TGM Water Research Institute and Povodí companies, state enterprises.

Concentration of artificial radionuclides in hydrosphere affected by Temelín Nuclear Power Plant

Temporal and spatial changes in concentrations of selected radionuclides (tritium, radiostrontium and radiocaesium) were assessed in the parts of the Vltava and Elbe river basins affected by the operation of the Temelín Nuclear Power Plant.

Rapid method of determination of gross beta activity

In connection to the assessment of a radiological event, the procedure of rapid determination of the gross beta activity in water was proposed and validated. In cooperation with the radiological laboratories, the method has been tested in practice.
