Development of the method of biosphere modeling according to surface environmental conditions

Nagao, Fumiya; Kato, Tomoko ; Suzuki, Yuji*; Itazu, Toru*

In the performance assessment study in the geological disposal of the high-level radioactive waste in Japan, the assessment technique that can treat local characteristics is examined, and establishing the method for the biosphere modeling using specific local information is aimed. In this report, the basic matrices were compiled which contain transport and exposure processes in the surface environment from a generic point of view. And the method was shown to construct the steady-state biosphere model in the actual surface environments by the combination of the basic matrices. To confirm applicability of the method, the biosphere modeling for the hypothetical site was tried. In addition, the important issues to describe the surface environmental condition and human lifestyle were identified to extract future problems and viewpoints by referring to the earlier study of the biosphere assessment at the actual repository site in Sweden.
