Atmospheric dispersion

Assessment of risks from long-range atmospheric dispersion of radioactive materials.

In the NKS/NordRisk project, the long-range, long term atmospheric dispersion and deposition of radioactive materials, stemming either from hypothetical, accidental releases to the atmosphere or from prolonged emissions, is investigated using historical numerical weather prediction model data coupled to an atmospheric dispersion model.

These calculations provide a simplified probabilistic risk assessment for the long-range atmospheric transport of radionuclides.
