Description: A methodology to characterize the physical site, the chemical and physical properties of radionuclides, and the human response to radionuclides following their ingestion, inhalation, or external exposure in the evaluation of health risks associated with surface deposition or shallow burial of contaminated materials is described. PRESTO-II simulates the transport of radionuclides from the disposal site and predicts radionuclide exposures and cancer risks for the 1000-year period following the end of burial operations. 10 references.
