Training Course: Theory and Practical Application of RESRAD-BIOTA and Other Codes in the RESRAD Family for the Determination of Dose, Risk and Authorized Limits at Radioactively-Contaminated Sites

Date: 30 April – 11 May 2018
Location: Argonne National Laboratory, Argonne, IL Argonne National Lab, USA
Language: English

Application Deadline for Nominee(s) of Invited IAEA Member States: 28 February 2018


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 instance, the RESRAD family of 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 for the assessment and optimization of remediation options for contamination sites.

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 and on the RESRAD codes, as well as hands-on exercises for these codes.
