Improvement of a Dynamic Food Chain Model Considering the Influence of Radioactive Contamination of Foods by Rainfall During a Nuclear Emergency
Hwang, Won-Tae;Kim, Eun-Han;Han, Moon-Hec;Choi, Yong-Ho;Lee, Han-Soo;Lee, Chang-Woo;
For the consideration of the influence on radioactive contamination of foods due to rain during the release period of radionuclides in a nuclear accident, the previous dynamic food chain model was improved. Wet interception coefficients for the agricultural plants were derived as a function of radionuclide and rainfall amount, and mathematical formula of the model was also re-established. In the results for the same time-integrated radioactive concentrations on the ground, radioactive contamination of foods decreased greatly by rainfall, and it decreased dramatically according to increasing rainfall amount. It means that predictive contamination in foods using the previous dynamic food chain model, in which dry interception to the agricultural plants is only considered, can be overestimated. Among radionuclides considering in this study ($^{137}Cs,;^{90}Sr,;^{131}I$), influence of rainfall for food contamination was the most sensitive to $^{131}I$, and the least sensitive to $^{90}Sr$.
