3. DESCRIPTION OF PROBLEM OR FUNCTION

LPGS calculates the radiological impacts resulting from radioactive releases to the hydrosphere. The hydrosphere is represented by the following types of water bodies: estuary, small river, well, lake, and one- dimensional river. The program is principally designed to calculate  radiation dose (individual and population) to body organs as function of time for the various exposure pathways. The exposure modes considered are: 1) consumption of drinking water, 2) consumption of aquatic foods, and 3) recreational exposure through swimming and shoreline activities.
