This chapter assists professionals in selecting and properly using atmospheric transport, diffusion, and deposition models to estimate the transport and deposition of radionuclides released into the atmosphere. After presenting meteorological fundamentals applicable to atmospheric processes, different types of mathematical models and modeling approaches are discussed. Fundamental principles and guidelines are also presented to help professionals select the most appropriate model for a given assessment problem, and to sensitize model users to the need for using appropriate and accurate site data in model calculations.

Keywords:   atmosphere, transport, diffusion, deposition, models, fundamental principles, assessment, site data
