The assessment of radiological consequences for long-lasting releases was based on source terms and weather scenarios described in two previous articles. Four different institutions participated in radiological consequence assessment using their own source terms, weather scenarios, sites and characteristics of domestic nuclear power plants and atmospheric dispersion models. The results were evaluated in the context of national intervention levels. This assessment provided a good basis for an evaluation of the suitability of current nuclear emergency planning for potential accidents with long lasting releases.
Key words: radiological consequence assessment / atmospheric dispersion modelling / long lasting release
