dc.description.abstractAlthough the use of nuclear power has several advantages over the burning of fossil fuels, it has several disadvantages also. The inherent danger of a nuclear accident at a power plant is one of these disadvantages. Although the probability of an accident is very low in comparison to other risks we normally encounter, the consequences are significant. Thousands of local citizens could be exposed to radiation levels more than the normal background levels. It is the responsibility of the State to make the necessary decisions regarding the evacuation of its citizens. To make the best decision possible, it is necessary to obtain a large amount of information regarding the concentration of radionuclides being released and to quickly make projections of the exposure to ionizing radiation of the neighbors of the plant.en_US
