Dynamic modelling of radionuclide uptake by Fukushima coastal biota

    Research outputpeer-review


    This paper describes how the dynamic transfer to marine biota D-DAT model has now been redeveloped into a tool able to calculate transfers to biota using biokinetic parameters (short- and long-term biological half-lives, or TB1/2s) and also the dynamics of transfer to and from sediments, which improves calculation of external dose components - an important issue for benthic organisms and for retrofitting the likely releases to the marine environment. The application to Fukushima is fully discussed.
