Abstract

The autumn of 2007 has seen the fiftieth anniversary of two separate events that were of great importance both for the worldwide nuclear industry and for the science of radioecology. This short article marks this anniversary by briefly reviewing the causes, releases, impacts and legacies of both the Kyshtym accident of September 1957 and the Windscale accident of October 1957.
