AMORAD project - Video summary


Last update on October 2016


The goal of the AMORAD project (Improvment of dispersion forecast and impact assessment of radionuclides in the environment), launched in January 2014, is to answer the central question, “How can the consequences of a release of radioactive substances on humans and the environment be more accurately assessed?”.


It will improve two types of models, those that forecast the dispersion of radionuclides in the environment and those that assess the impact of radionuclides on two compartments of the biosphere and their interfaces, i.e. the marine environment and land ecosystems and associated surface water.
