Abstract:

This report represents the initial stages in an investigation of factors affecting the transport of biologically important radionuclides into a reservoir by surface runoff. The phenomena of overland flow, infiltration, fallout deposition and activity transport have been analyzed separately and individual formulations for each have been derived. These are included in the report along with computer solutions of the first three. A general sketch of the projected overall model is contained in the introduction with a discussion of the areas remaining to be investigated. Author
