Abstract: Environmental radioactive particles have assumed in recent years a predominant role for the understanding of the transport mechanisms in the environment as well as for the availability of radionuclides to humans. Their characterization by non-destructive instrumental methods can be very useful as applied to radioecological studies. Three specific cases of radioactive environmental particles stemming from different release scenarios are discussed in terms of the information available when characterized bu non destructive spectroscopic methods. In particular, application of SEM-EDX, SIMS and synchrotron-based techniques like nu-XRF, 3D-nu tomography and nu-XANES are considered. The complementarity of the methods is also highlighted.
