The urban landscape, including the size and shape of buildings, can play a role in the dispersal of radioactive material. First responders must know what the radioactive dispersal will look like in specific urban environments to prepare for initial response operations including securing the perimeter, search and rescue, and evacuations. This project will leverage existing modeling capabilities to provide first responders with a better understanding of the containment dispersion from a radiological release.
