Abstract A Radioactive Waste Management Systems Model, is presented. The systems model and associated computer code called AMRAW (Assessment Method for Radioactive Waste), has two parts. The first part, AMRAW-A, consists of the Source Term (radioactive inventory versus time), the Release Model, and the Environmental Model. The second part of the systems model, AMRAW-B, is the Economic Model which calculates health effects corresponding to the various organ dose rates from AMRAW-A, collects these health effects in terms of economic costs and attributes these costs to radionuclides, decay groups, and elements initially in the waste inventory. The generic description of AMRAW-A is presented in Vol. I. Implementation of the model and computer code for terminal storage in a bedded salt reference repository is presented in Part 1 of this volume. The model is not limited to the application described here; demonstration applications to other phases of the radioactive waste management sequence, and to another geologic setting are given in Part 2 of this volume.
