Abstract or Summary
  • The Oregon Department of Energy has set up recommendations for agricultural crop and non-crop embargo zones following an accidental or purposeful radioactive release. Of special interest are the FDA’s Derived Intervention Levels (DIL) and the state’s exposure limit of 0.4µR/hr. At the Oregon State University Emergency Response Research and Support Lab, NARAC Web Atmosphere and Diffusion Modeling System is used to generate consequences from possible radiation release accident scenarios. Using scenario and NARAC outputs, the DIL and exposure are calculated and compared to the recommended DIL and exposure limits. Analysis of these calculations reveals a wide assortment of dissimilarities in the recommended limits for which the embargo zones are set.
