Abstract

The NRPB dynamic foodchain models, FARMLAND, are general models to simulate the transfer to radionuclides through terrestrial foodchains. In order to assess the ability of the models to represent general conditions, predictions have been compared with two sets of data. The first set are measurements made after the Chernobyl reactor accident of activity concentrations in milk, lamb and green vegetables. The second set is of UK average activity concentrations in milk from fallout due to weapons testing over the last thirty years. -from Authors
