Abstract : A two day workshop was held as part of the ONR Arctic Nuclear Waste Assessment Program (ANWAP) on 18-19 January 1995 mL the Naval Research Laboratory in Washington, DC. Over one hundred scientists and engineers participated in this workshop from the U.S., Korea, Canada, Norway and the IAEA in Monaco. The goal of the workshop was to foster communication and discussion concerning concepts and requirements for long term monitoring of nuclear contamination in the marine environment. The focus of the workshop was on the sensor technologies and strategies required to monitor the Russian dump sites, the Russian riverine input into the Arctic, potential future accidents and possible additional dumping in the Arctic Seas. Of particular concern is the monitoring of regional transport toward the Alaskan coasts and the Norwegian fishing grounds. Also included in the scope of this workshop are the platform requirements, communications, data collection methods and physical oceanographic data requirements to determine the transport and disposition of the radionuclides.
