Abstract

Over the last decade a number of models and approaches have been developed for the estimation of the exposure of non-human biota to ionising radiations. In some countries these are now being used in regulatory assessments. However, to date there has been no attempt to compare the outputs of the different models used. This paper presents the work of the International Atomic Energy Agency’s EMRAS BiotaWorking Group which compares the predictions of a number of such models in model–model and model–data inter-comparisons.
