The technical report presents the methodology used to assess the potential annual individual doses and human exposure and geologic media contamination probabilities from projected releases of radioisotopes from a geologic repository. It describes the models that the Environmental Protection Agency employed for this analysis and review the various assumptions which were made. Since this analysis is necessarily generic in nature, the methodology uses very general models of environmental pathways and considers a range of values for the various parameters used in the models.
