  • Content Description: The Savannah River Laboratory (SRL) is currently involved as the focal point of an inter-laboratory effort to estimate the enviornmental effects of operating a nuclear preprocessing facility. As a part of this effort SRL has assumed the responsibility of providing estimates of population exposure resulting form radioactive discharges to the atmosphere. This responsibility does not include contributions from drinking water and food ingestion which are being estimated by Hanford Engineering Development Laboratory (HEDL) and Lawrence Livermore Laboratory (LLL), two of the participating laboratories for the overall environmental effects study. The SRL effort in exposure estimation is confined to contributions resulting from immersion in contaminated air and external beta and gamma dose from exposure to contaminated ground. Population exposure resulting from immersion in contaminated air traditionally have been given more attention. A primary objective of this report is to develop a technique to provide an adequate estimation of population dose resulting from gound depositions and to establish the relative importance of the contributing factors. This report was written in 1978, and has been identified as information for the Dose Reconstruction Project.
