Introduction
Radioecologist with solid experience in aspects of aquatic ecosystems in biosphere assessments, including planning, arrangement and implementation of field work and supporting the modelling. Scientific and technical support in site characterisation, monitoring and biosphere assessments of aquatic and other ecosystems, including mass balances and fluxes, features, events and processes (FEPs) and parameters in radionuclide transport and dose assessments.

Conference Paper
Full-text available
NORM-involving industrial practices pose multifaceted environmental and radiation safety issues that need to be managed in a cost-effective but reliably safe manner that satisfies both regulatory and public concerns. In addition to the management and possible remediation of a site itself, often there are also aspects of waste and residue management...

In: Suopäivä 2020 – abstraktikirja [Finnish Peatland Day 2020, Book of Abstracts], Tieteiden talo, Helsinki 31.1.2020. Finnish Peatland Society, Helsinki, Finland. Abstract on p. 26.
Conference Paper
Full-text available
The Baltic Sea is characterised by high degree of freshwater input and limited oceanic connection that results in brackish water that hosts rather distinct biota communities, and its environmental protection values are widely recognised. The area has also received its share of the global fallout and deposition from nuclear accidents and, consequent...
Poster
Full-text available
* Mires are important habitats for versatile biota communities – important also to nature protection * Current radiological protection paradigm calls for considering also biota on its own right * This applies also to existing situations (e.g. post-emergency) * Radiation protection of humans and biota can be addressed together, the latter providing...
Poster
Full-text available
The Baltic Sea is an enclosed arm of the North Atlantic Ocean, characterized by high degree of freshwater input and limited oceanic connection that is reflected in the brackish water type hosting relatively distinct biota communities. The sea is also important in many aspects to the people in the region. ... EnviroCase has now opted to invest in in...
Article
Non-human biota in radiological risk assessment is typically evaluated using Reference Organisms (ROs) or Reference Animals and Plants (RAPs), for all exposure situations. However, it still remains open whether the use of an increased number of species would improve the ability to demonstrate protectiveness of the environment. In this paper, the re...
Poster
Full-text available
In this conference poster we compared water-to-whole body concentration ratios for benthic macroinvertebrates in lakes in west Greenland (Kangerlussuaq), Sweden (Forsmark and Laxemar sites) and in Finland (lakes Koskeljärvi, Lutanjärvi and Säkylän Pyhäjärvi). A large number of data on stable elements were considered as a proxy to long-lived radionu...
Article
Full-text available
The International Atomic Energy Agency has coordinated an international project addressing climate change and landscape development in post-closure safety assessments of solid radioactive waste disposal. The work has been supported by results of parallel ongoing research that has been published in a variety of reports and peer reviewed journal arti...

Conference Paper
Transfer of radionuclides into biota is clearly regulated by the availability and uptake/intake and the respective levels also by the losses from the organisms. Conceptually, this can be addressed also with allometric scaling, phylogeny and ecological stoichiometry. These have been studied also for their applications in radioecology, but the ecolog...
Conference Paper
In many applications, especially in safety cases for nuclear facilities, objective evidence-based confirmation that models and data are fit for the purpose is warranted. In addition to the numerical uncertainty and sensitivity analyses, various other approaches have been used for example in nuclear waste disposal, pharmacology and environmental man...
Conference Paper
Lake Säkylän Pyhäjärvi has been a subject of scientific research for long due to its ecological, recreational and commercial importance. Signal crayfish was introduced to the lake in the 1980s and over the years it has become a common species and a valuable catch for the local fishermen. Olkiluoto Island, about 50 kilometres north-west to Lake Säky...
Article
Full-text available
A data-driven method for describing the benthic cover type based on full-waveform bathymetric LiDAR data analysis is presented. The waveform of the bathymetric LiDAR return pulse is first modeled as a sum of three functions: a Gaussian pulse representing the surface return, a function modeling the backscatter and another Gaussian pulse modeling the...
Technical Report
This working report presents results of biomass distribution and dimensions of an adult and a juvenile great cormorant (Phalacrocorax carbo) and of cormorant eggs from the Puskakari colony, Bothnian Sea, close to the Olkiluoto nuclear waste repository site in south-western Finland. Also, element concentrations and distributions are presented for th...
Article
Full-text available
In Finland, Olkiluoto Island on the western coast has been selected as a repository site for spent nuclear fuel disposal. With the approaching licensing steps (application for the nuclear construction licence in 2012), the biosphere assessment demonstrating the long-term safety of the repository is developed into more and more site specific. At the...
