  • Assessment of Tc-99 monitoring within the western Irish Sea using a numerical model 

    Olbert, Agnieszka Indiana; Hartnett, Michael; Dabrowski, Tomasz (Elsevier ScienceDirect, 2010-05-26)
    Water circulation patterns and associated material transport within a highly dynamic system such as the Irish Sea are complex phenomena. Although Tc-99 monitoring programme undertaken by the Radiological Protection Institute ...
  • Determination of flushing characteristics of the Irish Sea: A spatial approach 

    Dabrowski, Tomasz; Hartnett, Michael T.; Olbert, Agnieszka Indiana (Elsevier ScienceDirect, 2011-12-08)
    The Authors devised a novel generic approach to assessing the flushing of the Irish Sea through the determination of spatially distributed residence times and the development of flushing homogeneity curves. Results indicate ...
  • Effects of complex hydrodynamic processes on the horizontal and vertical distribution of Tc-99 in the Irish Sea 

    Olbert, Agnieszka Indiana; Hartnett, Michael; Dabrowski, Tomasz (Elsevier ScienceDirect, 2010-10-14)
    The increased discharge of Tc-99 from the Sellafield plant following the commissioning of the Enhance Actinide Removal Plant in 1994 was reflected in higher Tc-99 activity concentrations over much of the Irish Sea The ...
  • Influence of seasonal circulation on flushing of the Irish Sea 

    Dabrowski, Tomasz; Hartnett, Michael T.; Olbert, Agnieszka Indiana (Elsevier ScienceDirect, 2009-12-16)
    We applied a three-dimensional general ocean and coastal circulation model to the Irish Sea in order to determine water renewal time scales in the region. The model was forced with meteorological data for 1995, a year with ...
