Conclusions

An assessment of the risk of fallout associated with the failure of a nuclear power plant located in Turkey was performed using the ANU-CTM transport model. The results of the the assesment were visualized to aid in the interpretation and communication of the model predictions.

The study has found that Turkey and countries of the Middle East are at high risk of receiving fallout and that, for each country, this risk varies during the year. It is clear from the model results that regional environmental security considerations need to be taken into account when siting nuclear power reactors in Turkey and the Middle East. To eliminate these risks alternative sources of energy generation should be considered.
