Fate and Transport Modeling of Radionuclides and Chemicals in the Columbia River

It is important to assess the cumulative long-term effects of Hanford Site-derived contaminants to the Columbia River and the region after the site closes. The assessment will include impacts to human and ecological health as well as the region’s economy and cultures. To conduct this assessment, PNNL is in the process of developing the necessary tools and supporting data. The computational capability for performing an initial assessment is known as the System Assessment Capability (SAC Rev. 0).
