Abstract : A FORTRAN computer program, HAZARD, was written and programmed for the CDC 6600 to calculate infinity does to the thyroid resulting from exposure to a reactor plume following a design basis accident. Using, as input, plant operating characteristics and meteorological conditions HAZARD generates data for use in siting analysis and in emergency planning. A sample case is given to illustrate the use of HAZARD in population vulnerability assessment. (Author)
