Abstract

This report consists of a series of 10 individual review chapters - written between 1980 and 1983 - together with a summary document linking and overviewing the work. The topics covered are as follows: 'Plume rise in nuclear safety studies'; 'Dry deposition'; 'Wet deposition'; 'Atmospheric dispersion in urban environments'; 'Topographical effects in nuclear safety studies'; 'Coastal effects and transport over water'; 'Time-varying meteorology in consequence assessment'; 'Building effects in nuclear safety studies'; 'Effect of variations in mixing height on atmospheric dispersion'; 'The effect of turning of the wind with height on lateral dispersion'. Although the reviews are, on the whole, general in approach, emphasis has been given where appropriate to the impact of various phenomena on the assessment of reactor accident consequences. In general the work focuses on the 0-100 km range of distance downwind of the source. The reviews fulfill several functions: they serve as introductions to the subject areas; they outline theoretical and experimental developments; they act as reference documents providing a copious source of references for more detailed investigation of particular uncertainties; they point to areas requiring further development.
