Handbook of parameter values for the prediction of radionuclide transfer to wildlife, Paperback / softback Book

Handbook of parameter values for the prediction of radionuclide transfer to wildlife Paperback / softback

Part of the Technical reports series series

Paperback / softback


This handbook provides generic parameter values for estimating the transfer of radionuclides from environmental media to wildlife for the purpose of assessing potential radiation exposure under equilibrium conditions.

These data are intended for use where site specific data are either not available or not required, and to parameterize generic assessment models.

They are based on a comprehensive review of the available literature, including many Russian language publications that have not previously been available in English.

The publication addresses the limitations of the parameter values and the applicability of data.

Some general background information on the assessment of potential impacts of radioactive releases on wildlife is also included.

It complements the existing handbook in the same IAEA series with parameter to assess the radiological impact to humans.
