Seminar: Uncertainties in Decision Support – on the use of meteorological and source-term data in nuclear emergency management
12 September 2018, 10 am – 5 pm, Danish Meteorological Institute (DMI), Copenhagen, Denmark
In the early phase of a nuclear accident where radionuclides are released to the atmosphere, two large sources of uncertainty in the assessment of the radiological consequences exist: one associated with the radionuclide source term itself, the other associated with the meteorological data. The seminar addressed practical methods for estimating and presenting these uncertainties in modelling atmospheric dispersion and deposition of radionuclides. The implication for real-time emergency management and the added value for decision support were discussed.
The seminar was relevant for decision makers, for nuclear emergency management and for experts on source-term modelling and atmospheric dispersion.
