Abstract

The atmosphere can be compared to the hydrosphere and the lithosphere as a recipient of wastes, but the presence of airborne wastes is of more immediate concern to human life. There are two very distinct problems presented by atmospheric pollution, (1) that in the immediate vicinity of a plant and (2) the world-wide problem from long-term, widespread air pollution. Short- range problems have existed for many years as a result of non-radioactive wastes such as coal-smoke, sulphur dioxide and hydrogen fluoride. However, only in recent years has this problem received intense scientific study. Meteorological conditions play an important role in this problem. In some cases emission rates have been controlled in keeping with meteorological predictions. However, the basic solution is still that of reducing emission rates to the lowest possible values.

(author) [French] L'atmosphere peut etre comparee a l'hydrosphere et a la lithosphere en tant que receptacle eventuel de dechets, mais la presence de dechets en suspension dans l'air est plus preoccupante pour la vie humaine. La pollution atmospherique pose deux problemes nettement distincts: 1) un probleme de portee limitee concernant le voisinage immediat d'une usine, et 2) un probleme de portee mondiale, savoir la pollution largement repandue, a long terme, de l'atmosphere. Des problemes de portee limitee se sont poses depuis de nombreuses annees ; ils sont lies a la presence dans l'atmosphere de dechets non radioactifs, tels que les fumees produites par le charbon, l'anhydride sulfurique et l'anhydride fluorhydrique. Cependant, ce n'est que recemment que ce probleme a ete soumis a une etude scientifique poussee. Les conditions meteorologiques jouent la un role important. Dans certains cas, les intensites d'emission ont ete controlees en tablant sur les previsions meteorologiques. Toutefois, la solution fondamentale est encore de reduire l'intensite d'emission a la plus faible valeur possible. (author) [Spanish] Si bien en algunos aspectos la atmosfera puede compararse a la hidrosfera y a la litosfera como posible recipiente de desechos, la presencia de desechos radiactivos en suspension en el aire puede afectar de manera mas inmediata a la seguridad de la vida humana. La contaminacion de la atmosfera plantea dos problemas completamente distintos: 1) uno, de alcance limitado, que se circunscribe a la proximidad inmediata de una planta nuclear, y 2) otro mas universal y a largo plazo, debido a la extension de la contaminacion atmosferica. Los problemas de contaminacion de alcance limitado se vienen planteando desde hace muchos anos como consecuencia de la evacuacion de desechos no radiactivos tales como anhidrido sulfuroso, acido fluorhidrico y humos procedentes de la combustion del carbon. Sin embargo, los aspectos cientificos de este problema solo se empezaron a estudiar detenidamente en el curso de los ultimos anos. Las condiciones meteorologicas desempenan un papel importante en esta cuestion. En ciertos casos, las velocidades de descarga se han podido regular en funcion de las predicciones meteorologicas. No obstante, la solucion fundamental consiste aun en mantener las velocidades de descarga en los valores minimos posibles. (author) [Russian] S tochki zrenija udalenija othodov atmosferu mozhno sravnit' s gidrosferoj i litosferoj, no nalichie othodov v atmosfere imeet bolee neposredstvennoe otnoshenie k zhizni cheloveka. Sushhestvujut dve ochen' jasnye problemy, svjazannye s zagrjazneniem atmosfery: 1) zagrjaznenie atmosfery v neposredstvennoj blizosti ot ustanovki i 2) vsemirnaja problema izbezhanija dolgovremennogo i shirokogo zagrjaznenija vozduha. Problema zagrjaznenija vozduha v neznachitel'nyh masshtabah sushhestvuet mnogie gody, kak rezul'tat udalenija neradioaktivnyh othodov takih kak ugol'nyj dym, dvuokis' sery i ftoristye soedinenija vodoroda. Odnako jeta problema stala izuchat'sja tol'ko v poslednie gody. Meteorologicheskie uslovija igrajut vazhnuju rol' v jetoj probleme. V nekotoryh sluchajah stepen' jemissii kontrolirovalas' v sootvetstvii s meteorologicheskimi prognozami. Odnako osnovnoe reshenie zakljuchaetsja vse eshhe v snizhenii stepeni jemissii do maksimal'no nizkih velichin. (author)}
