Psacoin level 1B intercomparison: An International code intercomparison exercise on a hypothetical safety assessment case study for radioactive waste disposal systems

Technical Report:

Abstract

This report focuses on the biosphere modelling aspects of the assessment of the radiological impact of the disposal of radioactive waste in greater detail. Seven exposure pathways are modelled: drinking water, freshwater fish, meat, milk and grain consumption as well as external gamma irradiation and contaminated dust inhalation. The accumulation of radionuclides, released in groundwaters, in the upper soil is also modelled. The objectives of this Level 1b exercise can be summarized as follows: 1 to gain experience in the application of probabilistic systems assessment methodology to transport and radiological exposure sub-models for the biosphere and hence to methods of estimating the total risk to individuals or groups of individuals; 2 to contribute to the verification of biosphere transport and exposure sub-models; 3 to investigate the effects of parameter uncertainty in the biosphere transport and exposure sub-models on the estimate of mean dose to individuals exposed via several exposure pathways.
