Radiological Risk Assessment and Environmental Analysis

John E. Till and Helen Grogan


This book is an update and major revision to Radiological Assessment: A Textbook on Environmental Dose Analysis published by the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission in 1983. It focuses on risk to the public because decision makers typically use that endpoint to allocate resources and resolve issues. Chapters in the book explain the fundamental steps of radiological assessment, and they are organized in a sequence that would typically be used when undertaking an analysis of risk. The key components of radiological risk assessment discussed include source terms, atmospheric transport, surface wat ... More

Keywords: dose analysis, source term, atmospheric transport, food chain pathway, dose conversion, uncertainty, environmental epidemiology, model validation, environmental regulations
