Title: Radionuclide releases to the atmosphere from Hanford Operations, 1944--1972. Hanford Environmental Dose Reconstruction Project

Abstract

The purpose of the Hanford Environmental Dose Reconstruction Project is to estimate the radiation dose that individuals could have received as a result of radionuclide emissions since 1944 from the Hanford Site. The first step in determining dose is to estimate the amount and timing of radionuclide releases to air and water. This report provides the air release information. This report provides hourly estimates of iodine-131 released to the air from separations plant operations for 1944 through 1949, the period during which sufficiently detailed release data exist to calculate hourly release estimates. Monthly release estimates for iodine-131 from 1950 through 1972 and monthly release estimates for five other radionuclides (ruthenium-103, ruthenium-106, cerium-144, strontium-90, and plutonium-239) from 1944 through 1972 are also provided in this report.
