Abstract

One of the objectives of the MARIA programme (Methods for Assessing the Radiological Impact of Accidents) is to develop a computer program system for assessing the off-site consequences of accidental releases of radioactive material into the atmosphere. This report describes COSYMA, a program system developed as part of the MARIA programme for this purpose. The suite of programs and data files which comprise COSYMA are presented, as well as the models included in the programs, the types of results which can be calculated and possible areas of application. COSYMA provides a flexible package which will allow users in a variety of institutions and in different European countries to investigate special problems by appropriate choice of parameter values and data sets. It enables users to carry out risk analyses, and also to investigate and understand detailed aspects of the results obtained. COSYMA is also intended for use by people who are not specialists in accident consequence assessment.
