Working Group 5

Wildlife Transfer Coefficient Handbook


The focus of the Working Group was to contribute to the development and implementation of an online Wildlife Transfer Parameter Database to be applied in the production of a Technical Reports Series (TRS) Handbook on Wildlife Transfer Coefficients. In parallel a core group was established by the IAEA in cooperation with International Union of Radioecology (IUR) to develop an online concentration ratio database, initially populated with the ERICA data, to provide data tables for the Handbook. A further objective of the Working Group was to provide a peer review of the text of the above mentioned Handbook.


Working Group 5 did not hold an Interim WG Meeting during 2011.
