The Workshop on Signatures of Man-made Isotope Production Remote 2 (WOSMIP Remote 2) was held virtually May 25-27, 2021. WOSMIP Remote 2 discussed issues associated with the backgrounds of radionuclides of environment, stack measurements, emissions mitigation, atmospheric transport modeling, an update on the production of medical isotopes, research and development issues, and events of interest.
