3. DESCRIPTION OF PROGRAM OR FUNCTION
GENII-S is the result of implementing GENII in the SUNS software shell. SUNS was developed to simplify the application of Monte Carlo methods of uncertainty analysis to a variety of problems. The GENII portion of the GENII-S package contains the program which was developed to incorporate the internal dosimetry models recommended by the International Commission on Radiological Protection (ICRP) into the environmental pathway analysis models used at Hanford. GENII, which is available as CCC-0601, is a coupled system of seven programs and the associated data libraries that comprise the Hanford Dosimetry System (Generation II) to estimate potential radiation doses to individuals or populations from both routine and accidental releases of radionuclides to air or water and residual contamination from spills or decontamination operations. The GENII system includes interactive menu-driven programs which allow the user to effectively address the parameters required for scenario generation and data input, internal and external dose factor generators, and environmental dosimetry programs. There also exist pull-down help menus which provide the user with a description of the input parameter and the possible options. The programs in GENII-S analyse environmental contamination resulting from both far-field and near-field scenarios. A far-field scenario focuses outward from the source, while a near-field scenario focuses in toward a receptor. GENII-S can calculate annual dose, committed dose, and accumulated dose from acute and chronic releases from ground or elevated sources to air or water and from initial contamination of soil or surfaces and can evaluate exposure pathways including direct exposure via water (swimming, boating, and fishing), soil (surface and buried sources), air (semi-infinite and finite cloud geometries), inhalation pathways, and ingestion pathways. In addition, GENII-S can perform 10,000-years migration analyses and can be used for retrospective calculations of potential radiation doses resulting from routine emissions and for prospective dose calculations for purposes such as siting facilities, environmental impact statements, and safety analysis reports.HEDL contributed additional data to the CCC-0601/GENII package in March 1995. These data are intended to improve the treatment of decay chains for calculations of doses form contaminated soil allowed to decay for hundreds of years. Air transport calculations are largely unaffected by theses changes due to the short decay times involved. These alternate data as well as the original data released with CCC-0601/GENII are included in this GENII-S package. Other data updates may be obtained by requesting the GENII package and accompanying literature describing the data changes and incorporating these data sets into the GENII-S directory replacing older version (see P.D. Rittmann in REFERENCES).
The Sensitivity and Uncertainty analysis Shell (SUNS) provided the capability to perform sensitivity and uncertainty analysis in one calculation, eliminating manual interfaces between the GENII code results and the sensitivity and uncertainty analysis codes. The main features of SUNS include: 1) an interactive full-screen input of all model data, 2) a customized help system, 3) the ability to modify setup options while inside SUNS, 4) a formatted printing of data files, 5) a full internal file management, 6) a consistent interface for data entry, editing, and processing/viewing output, 7) the ability to create both deterministic output blocks (results from parametric analysis, for example) and result from repeated trials in a single run, 8) an ASCII test output file (for data echo, debugging, and non-tabular output) in addition to SUNS output files, 9) a generation of statistical output information, including minimum and maximum value, means, variances, and percentiles in additionto simple and partial correlation coefficients for both raw and rank data, 10) the creation of graphical output including histograms, cumulative and complementary cumulative distribution functions, scatter plots, and x-y plots, 11) the tools (with a consistent user interface) to aid in model installation, and 12) user-specified menu options available to run any DOS program or batch file.
