A Symposium on the Interaction of Radioactive Contaminants with the Constituents of the Marine Environment will be held July 10–14, 1972, in Seattle, Washington. It will be sponsored by the International Atomic Energy Agency.

The symposium will provide a forum for the dissemination of knowledge and exchange of information on recent progress in the understanding of the behavior of radionuclides in the marine environment. It is aimed at elucidating the influence of radioactivity on the marine ecosystem and providing some background material for estimation of the capacity of the sea to accept radioactive waste without harmful effects on man and the ecosystem.
