Treść
ASSESSMENT OF RADIOLOGICAL RISK IN VICINITY OF FORMER URANIUM MINING AREAS IN POLAND K. Ciupek, P. Krajewski, M. Kardaś, M. Suplińska Central Laboratory for Radiological Protection The work carried out under the project NCBiR - "Technologies Supporting Development of Safe Nuclear Power Engineering"; Task 3: Meeting the Polish nuclear power engineering’s demand for fuel – fundamental aspects. Human activitiesrelated to the use of ionizing radiation and radioactive substances might cause exposure of the population and the environment. However, radiological risk assessment is mainly conducted only to human as an estimation of the effective dose being the sum of external and internal exposure whereas environmental protection assessment is more complex studies. The increased interest in recent years in this aspect and the ability to perform computer simulations contributed the development of models enabling assessment of exposure to certain organisms and estimation the concentrations of radionuclides in the various components of the environment. These models define a possible transition path of radionuclide in the atmosphere or waterways through their physical parameterization. The estimation of the content of radionuclides in plants, animals and human is possible by applying an existing risk assessment methodology. Models assessing human and environmental exposure from natural and artificial radionuclides, such as CROM, RESRAD, IMPACT or ERICA, come to be useful tools not only for researchers but also for regulatory authorities. This case study focused on the uranium mining areas (inactive mines and waste dumps) in the Giant Mountains (Karkonosze Mountains) in the south-west of Poland. On the basis of activity concentrations in samples of soil and mineral material from mineshafts, water samples from ponds, streams and small rivers and vegetation samples, an assessment of radiological impact of the former uranium mining areas was performed. The doses for reference group of inhabitants and biota in the vicinity of the former uranium mine were evaluated using IMPACT (EcoMetrix Inc.) model and ERICA tool. The variability and uncertainty of the results of radiological assessments are presented and discussed.
