The results of a study designed to improve the methodology for estimating the population exposures resulting from nuclear power plant gaseous effluents are given. The primary objective of this study was to validate a mathematical model (AIREM) for estimating radiation exposures due to atmospheric radioactive releases. This validation was accomplished by comparing the model predictions with actual field measurements made using pressurized ionization chambers and thermoluminescent dosimeters. Use of this model for predicting external exposures was shown to be quite acceptable for most applications. The usefulness of pressurized ionization chambers for making low-level exposure measurements was also demonstrated by this study.
