Report Title:Nordic Nuclear Accident Consequence Analysis (NORCON): Final Report
Activity Acronym:NORCON
Authors:Mark Dowdall, Jan Erik Dyve, Steen Cordt Hoe, Anna Maria Blixt Buhr, Ali Hosseini, Justin Brown, Gísli Jónsson, Patric Lindahl, Hrafn Guðmundsson, Sara Barsotti, Synnöve Sundell-Bergman,
Abstract:The NORCON project involved a comparative partial consequence analysis conducted within the Nordic region for a release of radioactivity from a nuclear power reactor(s) located within the region or in a nearby region of potential significance for the purpose of identifying methodological or procedural disparities between the participating countries with respect to the generation of the information used to direct post-accident responses over the short to long term. The project ranged from source term evaluation, to detailed dispersion/transport modelling and long term consequence assessment. The aims of the project included assessment of the potential for disparities and fractures in the assessment of impacts from a nuclear accident due to the implementation of systems for the estimation of dispersion of contamination and the behaviour of contaminants in the environment in years following an accident. The results of the project indicate that the main potential source of divergence in assessing the potential impacts of a nuclear accident between the countries of the Nordic region lies within the routines and procedures implemented during assessment of late phase impacts.
