On the cover: One of many lakes in the vicinity of the Mayak Complex, some of which were contaminated due to the 1957 accident. The problem of contamination of the lakes with long-lived radionuclides was discussed at the conference "Chronic Radiation Exposure: Small-Dose Effects," held in Chelyabinsk, the Russian Federation, October 2010.
