Defining Radiation And Environmental Safety

During its use as a storage base for spent nuclear fuel from Cold War submarines, Andreeva Bay has had a number of transformations in an attempt to keep up with deteriorating facilities. Now, it is the centre of a multinational cooperation to clean up the area, headed by the Northern Dimension Environmental Partnership (NDEP).
