Abstract

A study to perform an uncertainty analysis of the European accident consequence assessment system, COSYMA involved a series of analyses of the uncertainty in different sections of the system, followed by a final analysis of the uncertainty in the whole system.

This report describes the analysis of the uncertainty in the health module of COSYMA. Specifically it describes the analysis of the uncertainty in the model predictions resulting from uncertainty in the values to be assigned to the input parameters describing the risk of health effects from known doses of radiation. The main aim of this part of the study was to identify the input parameters whose uncertainties make large contributions to the overall uncertainty; the parameters identified would then be included in the final analysis of the uncertainty in the whole system..
