Studies on the 'air-grass-cow-milk' exposure pathway of airborne /sup 131/I from Wuergassen nuclear power plant in the 1980 grazing season. Untersuchungen zum Expositionspfad 'Luft-Gas-Kuh-Milch' fuer Jod 131 in der Abluft des Kernkraftwerkes Wuergassen waehrend der Weidezeit 1980

Abstract

The measurements and statistics, which were much more detailed than the annual routine measurements, included /sup 131/I emission measurements on the stack, the registration of meteorological parameters, measurements of /sup 131/I concentrations in air, grass, and milk, and supplementary statistics on the farmers' animal keeping habits. The infant thyroid dose resulting from /sup 131/I in milk was found to be lower by at least one order of magnitude than the value calculated from the emission data for the point of maximum exposure according to the Guideline to Explain Sect. 45 StrlSchV. This result confirms the results of earlier investigations. The model calculation according to the Guideline yields a value of 30 mrem for incorporation of /sup 131/I into the infant thyroid via the ingestion pathway for the year 1980, i.e. 25 times the measured value. The possible reasons for this are discussed.
