The report considers the threat posed by the accidental release of radionuclides from a nuclear power plant. It establishes relationships between radiation dose and the cost of evacuation under a wide variety of conditions. The report develops cost/dose relationships for 54 scenarios that are based upon the severity of the nuclear accident, meteorological conditions during the release of radionuclides into the environment and the angular width of the evacuation zone. The 54 scenarios are derived from combinations of three accident severity levels, six meteorological conditions and evacuation zone widths of 70, 90 and 180 degrees.
