There was also a day-long session on Fukushima, describing research that has been undertaken since the 2011 Great East Japan Earthquake, in particular with respect to the environmental transfer and effects of the radionuclides released.
Quintessa presented two oral papers and one poster paper, supported by the Swedish Radiation Safety Authority (SSM). Russell Walke spoke about comparisons between complex and more stylised approaches to representing the biosphere in long-term performance assessment studies, drawing on review of assessments of a proposed geological repository for spent nuclear fuel at Forsmark in Sweden. Laura Limer spoke about the application of two models of the dynamics of C-14 in soils, plants and the atmosphere to data from a nuclear fuel reprocessing plant. Laura also contributed to a poster concerning uncertainties in soil-plant interactions in long-term dose assessment models.
