nuclide

 [noo´klīd]
a species of atom characterized by the charge, mass, number, and quantum state of its nucleus, and capable of existing for a measurable lifetime (usually more than 10−10 sec).

nu·clide

(nū'klīd),
A particular (atomic) nuclear species with defined atomic mass and number.
See also: isotope.

nuclide

/nu·clide/ (noo´klīd) a species of atom characterized by the charge, mass, number, and quantum state of its nucleus, and capable of existing for a measurable lifetime (usually more than 10−10 sec.).

nuclide

[no̅o̅′klīd]
Etymology: L, nucleus, nut kernel
a species of atom characterized by the constitution of its nucleus, in particular by the number of protons and neutrons. Thus, Co-59 and Co-60 are both isotopes of cobalt and are each nuclides. Co-60 is a radionuclide because it undergoes radioactive decay.

nuclide

A single isotope; an atom with a specific atomic number, mass number and energy level.

nu·clide

(nū'klīd)
A particular (atomic) nuclear species with defined atomic mass and number.
See also: isotope

nuclide

An artificially produced radioactive isotope of an element. Many of these are used in medicine as tracers or for RADIOTHERAPY.

This was shown for the antagonistic processes of soil deepening and soil removal, as cosmogenic nuclide and geochemical mass balance studies in mountain regions revealed a stimulating effect of erosion on weathering rates (Riebe et al.
Second, in order to be able to express (almost) all the nuclide masses through continued fractions, we have to split the data set of non-radioactive nuclide masses into groups:
In addition, in CNET experiments with short-lived nuclides, the tracer series is often counted a day before or after the series containing the nuclide of interest; any cocktail instability effects would then be compounded with a potentially extreme departure from ideal cocktail matching (discussed presently).

The isotope dubnium-262 is known to also decay via alpha decay, but this was not observed, and naming rights were not granted since the final products were not well known nuclides at the time.
The water can be contaminated by surface run off of rain water that trasporting leached radio nuclides from cities, the mine waste soil weathering, agricutlural areas and so on [6].
Among the topics are the effect of groundwater fluctuations on the development of gullies; the use of cosmogenic nuclides in geomorphology and earth-surface processes; flood dynamics; rock glaciers; landscape change in the Arctic; and plate tectonics in Siberia, Western North America, North Africa, India, and Northwest Australia.
Neither is practiced by the radiochemist, but by the environmental chemist and the organic chemist, each of whom can learn the problems of working with radioactive nuclides.
