The demonstration version is accompanied by a tutorial, and a set of twelve example cases. The Demonstration Guide provides step-by-step instructions for developing the tutorial case and for modifying and running the example cases. The examples, which include several based on International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) material, are:
- three separate models assessing different aspects and designs for near-surface waste disposal facilities;
- a safety assessment model for legacy disposal of naturally occurring radioactive material (NORM);
- a model for atmospheric dispersion and deposition of NORM radionuclides from the stack of a coal-fired power station;
- a biokinetic model for lead behaviour in the human body;
- models for radionuclide releases to the biosphere via (i) contaminated irrigation water and (ii) groundwater discharges to a small lake catchment;
- a Gaussian plume model within an atmospheric deposition source term;
- a probabilistic biosphere model from the Nuclear Energy Agency PSACOIN model inter-comparison exercise;
- a model for C-14 migration in an aquatic system; and
- a model for migration of carbon dioxide and methane from landfill disposal of municipal waste.
In addition to providing those potentially interested in purchasing AMBER licences with hands-on experience of using the code, the demonstration version has been designed with its potential use as a free teaching tool in mind. The tutorial provides users with a simple model that they can implement for themselves and then use to explore modelling of contaminant migration and potential impacts.
