Umbrella 4B - Potential Nuclear Events - impact and risk assessment

  • Deposition map from the worst case scenario for hypothetical Sellafield accident


The main aim is to evaluate and improve impact and risk assessment tools for establishing a scientifically based set of decision criteria. Impact and risk assessments rely on compiling relevant information of the source term and deposition, ecosystem transfer, biological uptake and effect to determine if exposure scenarios encountered under normal conditions or emergency situations (incidents/accidents/malevolent acts) represent a risk to humans and wildlife. By sensitivity analysis, factors contributing the most to the overall uncertainties can be disclosed, thus setting the priorities for the research in RA1-RA3
