Abstract
Three radiological dispersal devices were detonated in 2012 under controlled conditions at Defence Research and Development Canada’s Experimental Proving Grounds in Suffield, Alberta. Each device comprised a 35-GBq source of 140La. The dataset obtained is used in this study to assess the MLCD, ADDAM, and RIMPUFF atmospheric dispersion models. As a continuation of Lebel et al. (2016), this paper examines different methodologies for making dose estimates with atmospheric dispersion models.
