Abstract

This paper presents the results of a feasibility study concerning the association of an atmospheric dispersion code, a radioecological and dosimetric impact code and several functions of a Geographical Information System, within the same tool. The SIROCCO CD code (atmospheric transfer, surface deposits and associated doses) is used for atmospheric dispersion and the ASTRAL 1.1 code (food chain transfers, post-accident impacts and doses) for impact. The geographical information system software's functions make it possible to develop thematic maps, to create isovalue maps, and perform space analyses. A prototype was developed under a PC environment. The development of thematic maps is grounded on geographic data en
