Abstract A computer program RVRDOS has been developed to calculate population doses due to releases of radionuclides into flowing streams. Concentrations of the radionuclides downstream take into account dilution, decay, and the ingrowth of a daughter product. Population doses to four organs are calculated for drinking water and fish ingestion pathways. Individual doses due to swimming may also be estimated. A program manual for RVRDOS is included in this report. RVRDOS has been used to calculate population doses due to releases from nuclear power reactors on the Mississippi River Basin during 1973. The data base for these calculations and a summary of the calculations are discussed.
