General uses of artificial tracers for pollution dispersion studies in surface water are reviewed. The possibilities offered by fluorescent, radioactive and activable tracers are discussed. General radiological safety considerations of the use of artificial radioactive tracers are made.The paper includes a description of the main fields of application of radioactive tracers for river, estuary, lakes and sea studies dealing with dynamic aspects of these water bodies. Several case studies are shortly described.
