Training Course on the Theory and Practical Application of RESRAD-BIOTA, RESRAD-ONSITE and RESRAD-OFFSITE for the Determination of Dose, Risk and Authorized Limits at Radioactively Contaminated Sites

Date: October 25, 2021 – November 5, 2021
Location: Virtual Event

Application Deadline for Nominee(s) of Invited IAEA Member States: August 23, 2021


Human activities involving the use of radiation and radioactive substances can cause radiation exposure to the public and the environment. The radiological impact assessment of radioactive releases to the environment and the public should be performed regularly and supported by computer models, including for example the RESRAD family of codes (e.g. RESRAD-BIOTA, RESRAD-ONSITE, RESRAD-FFSITE codes).


Participants from the invited Member States of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) will be provided with practical training on the applicability and use of dose and risk models in the RESRAD family of codes (RESRAD-BIOTA, RESRAD-ONSITE, RESRAD-OFFSITE) for assessing potential human and biota radiation exposures at radioactively contaminated sites and for demonstrating compliance with radiation safety standards. RESRAD is a computer model that estimates radiation doses and risks from residual radioactive materials. The course will consist of lectures on the principles of radioecological risk assessment, an overview of RESRAD codes (e.g., RESRAD-BIOTA, RESRAD-ONSITE and RESRAD-OFFSITE) and their applicability, as well as hands-on exercises for these codes.
