Summary: A significant milestone in the history of nuclear technology, "Nuclear Energy Encyclopedia: Science, Technology, and Applications" is a comprehensive and authoritative reference guide written by a committee of the world's leading energy experts. The encyclopedia is packed with cutting-edge information about where nuclear energy science and technology came from, where they are today, and what the future may hold for this vital technology. Filled with figures, graphs, diagrams, formulas, and photographs, which accompany the short, easily digestible entries, the book is an accessible reference work for anyone with an interest in nuclear energy, and includes coverage of safety and environmental issues that are particularly topical in light of the Fukushima Daiichi incident. The first definitive work on all aspects of the world's energy supply, the Nuclear Energy Encyclopedia brings together decades of knowledge in a series of volumes about energy sources and technologies ranging from coal and oil, to biofuels and wind, and ultimately nuclear power.
