In post-closure radiological safety assessments of repositories for solid radioactive wastes, transfers of radionuclides to animal products are typically characterised using Transfer Factors (TFs), defined as the ratio of the concentration of the radionuclide in the animal product of interest to the rate of intake in diet. Such transfer factors can be… (More)
