Abstract

This meeting was convened by the Commission of the European Communities and the Universite Catholique de Louvain to bring together researchers who represent different scientific disciplines and have obtained distribution coefficients experimentally or tried to use them for modelling. The goal was to discuss theoretical approaches and experimental limitations of obtaining distribution coefficients and to evaluate alternative methods of acquiring comparable information. Modellers who utilize distribution coefficients to predict transport and fate of radionuclides in the environment were invited to the meeting to discuss how they use the values and what alternatives would be acceptable for their modelling efforts. It was intended that open discussion among these disciplines would provide explanations for the variability that is observed in the experimental results and clarify which results are most appropriate for use in radiological assessment models.
