The concept of 'environmental dose commitment' was developed to encompass the radiation doses to populations implied by this irreversibility, extended it to include the calculation of resultant potential adverse health effects, and applied it to the specific case of the potential consequences of the next 50 years of normal operations of the United States nuclear power industry. Only the potential impact of the release of four types of long-lived radionuclides, namely tritium, krypton-85, iodine-129, and the actinides has been considered, and therefore the report does not purport to provide an evaluation of the overall impact of the industry.
