Abstract : A workshop focusing on modeling the dispersion of radionuclides which have been dumped into the Arctic Ocean was held in Monterey, CA, in October 1994. This workshop was sponsored by the Office of Naval Research and hosted by the Naval Research Laboratory. Over 40 participants attended this meeting during which 23 oral presentations were given. The focus of this workshop was on the existing modeling effort within the Arctic Nuclear Waste Assessment program, complementary data sets and the future direction of these efforts. The goal of the workshop was to foster communication through presentations of ongoing work. The intent was that discussions, brought about by these presentations would help the most important processes, effects, and issues that should be addressed by present and future modeling efforts.
