DOSE CONVERSION FACTORS DERIVED FOR POPULATION RESIDING IN THE GROUND WATER DISCHARGE AREA CONTIGUOUS TO RW GEOLOGICAL REPOSITORY

JOURNAL: 2019, 11, p. 80-90

AUTHOR: S.A. Bogatov, A.A. Arakelyan

ANNOTATION:

Simplified conservative method was applied to assess biosphere dose conversion factors for a scenario suggesting the use of contaminated water for household and drinking water supply needs, including irrigation of eatable plants. Calculations show that the main contribution to radiation dose is associated with the consumption of vegetables irrigated by contaminated water with root uptake being considered as predominant contamination path.

Key words: radionuclides, radioactive waste, underground disposal, ingestion dose, critical group of population.
