This technical report presents the methodology used to assess the long-term population risks from projected releases of waste from a geologic repository. It describes the models that the Agency developed specifically expects that population distributions, food chains, and living habits may change dramatically over 10,000 years. Rather than attempt to predict such changes, this methodology uses very general models of environmental pathways that consider present values for the various parameters used in the models.
