Estimates of dose to the population within fifty miles due to noble gas releases from the Three Mile Island incident

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

Estimates have been made of the dose to the population within 80 km (50 miles) due to noble gas releases from the Three Mile Island Unit 2 incident for the period March 28 to April 15, 1979. Source term, meteorological, and monitoring data used in these estimates were supplied by the Task Group on Health Physics and Dosimetry of the President's Commission on the Accident at Three Mile Island. The 22.5/sup 0/ sector-averaged form of the Gaussian plume atmospheric dispersion model was used to calculate doses due to immersion in air and inhalation. The best estimate of the population dose ... continued below

The 22.5/sup 0/ sector-averaged form of the Gaussian plume atmospheric dispersion model was used to calculate doses due to immersion in air and inhalation. The best estimate of the population dose to the total body is 15 person-sieverts (1500 person-rem).
