Sensitivity Analysis for the Effects of Meteorological and Radioactive Release Conditions on Radiation Doses from Nuclear Power Plant Accidents
This paper briefly reviews several large-scale modeling systems for nuclear power plant accidents in the United States, and summarizes our recent modeling results for the effects of key meteorological conditions, radioactive release characteristics, and evacuation strategies on radiation doses. This work was intended to be useful in the formulation of emergency plans for nuclear power plant accidents. The sensitivity analyses establish a scale for comparing impacts at various locations and over time depending on the variation of those key parameters, and have clear implications for emergency planning. © 1990 Kluwer Academic Publishers.
