Second-generation environmental dosimetry
GENII Version 2.10 is now part of the Radiation Protection Computer Code Analysis and Maintenance Program (RAMP) at the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission. It is a documented set of programs for calculating radiation dose and risk from radionuclides released to the environment. Although the code was initially developed for the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), regulators and decision makers in other federal agencies, including several outside the U.S., employ this state-of-the-art, technically peer reviewed system to analyze hazards and design controls to prevent or mitigate potential accidents. The GENII code is developed by Pacific Northwest National Laboratory for the Department of Energy.
GENII is a set of programs for estimating radionuclide concentrations in the environment and dose to humans from acute or chronic exposures from radiological releases to the environment or initial contamination conditions. It is part of a set of quality-assured and configuration-controlled safety analysis codes managed and maintained for the Department of Energy’s Safety Software Central Registry and the United States Nuclear Regulatory Commission.
