setting up flexpartwrf for radionuclide dispersion at meso-scale

Dear all,

I want to simulate radionuclide atmospheric dispersion at meso-scale related to an hypothetical accidental release from UAE Barakah Nuclear Power Plant. My WRF domain is 218 per 179 points with 5 km resolution.

Question 1:
What would be a reasonable number of Lagrangian particles to use for this application. Is 2 millions particles is enough ?
Question 2:
For Cs-137/and I-131 (in its particulate form). What typical values to specify for the mean particulate diameter and the standard deviation for these species.

Question 3:
Any thoughts for including the emission due to re-suspension.

Thank you very much for your feedback

  • Component changed from FP other to FP input data
  • Owner set to pesei
  • Status changed from new to accepted
  • Type changed from Defect to Support
  • Version changed from FLEXPART 9.0.2 to FLEXPART-WRF

Q1: probably yes
Q2: like accumulation mode aerosol.
Q3: resuspension might be relevant for a desert environment, but not easy to consider.

Sorry for the late reply.
