Applying RESRAD-CHEM for chemical risk assessment

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

RESRAD-CHEM is a multiple pathway analysis computer code to evaluate chemically contaminated sites; it was developed at Argonne National Laboratory for the US Department of Energy. The code is designed to predict human health risks from exposure to hazardous chemicals and to derive cleanup criteria for chemically contaminated soils. It consists of environmental fate and transport models and is capable of predicting chemical concentrations over time in different environmental media. The methodology used in RESRAD-CHEM for exposure assessment and risk characterization follows the US Environmental Protection Agency`s guidance on Human Health Evaluation for Superfund. A user-friendly interface is incorporated for ... continued below
