Evolving role of radiotracers in coastal zone studies
Pergamon-Elsevier Science Ltd.
Recent advances in the off-shore radiotracing program in the Asia Pacific region are described with examples from the Philippines, Thailand, Hong Kong and Australia. Advances are driven by changing requirements from the user community which include: (1) the need to experimentally evaluate the output of numerical models underpinning engineering and environmental investigations; (2) the need to address increasingly sophisticated questions posed by researchers into coastal ecosystems; and (3) the need to respond to pressures from regulators to minimise the level of tracer released to the environment. Four stages in the recent evolution of tracer technology are identified. Crown Copyright © 2003 2003 Published by Elsevier Science Ltd.
