Abstract [en]

Realistic and reliable dose models are required to estimate the radiological risks to non-human biota, in regions contaminated by radioactivity. To facilitate detailed dose calculations, a graphical user interface has been developed to the Monte Carlo N-Particle Transport code (MCNP): the TADPOLE editor (Terrestrial and Aquatic Dose assessment Program for Organisms in their Local Environment). The editor is intended for site and biota specific analyses of absorbed dose from external γ- and β- radiation.

An experiment was performed in controlled, laboratory conditions as a first validation of the calculation models assigned by the editor. Measurements with TL-dosimeters yielded lower doses than was calculated by MCNP5 through the editor.
