Abstract

This paper reviews the radioecological investigations carried out during 1970/71 by the different countries along the River Danube and its tributary streams. In the discussion of the results special attention is focused on the capacity of the Danube with regard to the radioactive burden in connection with atomic power plants. It can be concluded that, as a consequence of the rigorous regulations in the atomic field until now, the radioactivity does not appear as a serious factor of water pollution specially as far as it concerns the River Danube.
