RESRAD BIOTA Analysis Process

Level 3 RESRAD-BIOTA input screen for tissue concentrations. In this example (waterfowl dose assessment), measured edible tissue concentrations were input into the code. The Mallard organism was created by selecting an appropriate geometry, ingestion parameters, and weight.

Results showing estimated external and internal doses to the waterfowl. The total dose is less than the limit of 0.1 rad/d (10 mGy/d) to terrestrial animals indicating that no negative impact on waterfowl is expected and a Site-Specific Biota Dose Assessment is not warranted.
