Due to lack of measurements of activity concentrations in air, the assessment of the inhalation dose of the population evacuated from the 30-km zone after the Chernobyl accident is not possible from continuous filter measurements. Since the evaluation of the inhalation dose in each settlement of the zone is of great interest for epidemiological purposes, an approach was chosen that utilizes the available data on ground deposition of 137Cs, a recently performed best estimate of the radionuclide… 
RECONSTRUCTION OF THE INGESTION DOSES RECEIVED BY THE POPULATION EVACUATED FROM THE SETTLEMENTS IN THE 30-KM ZONE AROUND THE CHERNOBYL REACTOR
TLDR
The thyroid doses assessed for the evacuees are consistent with results achieved in studies performed in areas outside the 30-km zone, and the ingestion doses are compared to the doses due to inhalation and external exposure.
A radioecological model for thyroid dose reconstruction of the Belarus population following the Chernobyl accident
TLDR
A radioecological model was developed to estimate thyroid exposures of the Belarus population following the Chernobyl accident and results were compared with estimations of thyroid exposure that were based on 131I measurements in human thyroids, and they are in good agreement.
The Chernobyl accident 20 years on: an assessment of the health consequences and the international response.
TLDR
The health impact of the Chernobyl accident was evaluated, the international response to the accident was inadequate and uncoordinated, and recommendations for dealing with future international-scale accidents were considered.
The Chernobyl Accident 20 Years On: An Assessment of the Health Consequences and the International Response
TLDR
Because of the problems with the international response to Chernobyl, the United Nations should initiate an independent review of the actions and assignments of the agencies concerned, with recommendations for dealing with future international-scale accidents.
Non-medical exposure to radioiodines and thyroid cancer
Abstract. The Chernobyl accident, which occurred 32 years after the accidental exposure of Marshall islanders, resulted in the exposure of neighbouring populations to a mixture of iodine isotopes and
Multistage Models and the Incidence of Cancer in the Cohort of Atomic Bomb Survivors
TLDR
The analyses in this paper show that a number of biologically based models describe cancer incidence among the A-bomb survivors equally well, however, these different models can predict very different temporal patterns of risk after irradiation.

A CONSISTENT RADIONUCLIDE VECTOR AFTER THE CHERNOBYL ACCIDENT
The radionuclide vector in the release plume from the destroyed unit 4 of the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant was assessed. Emphasis was laid on radionuclides relevant for the internal dose, including
Chernobyl source term, atmospheric dispersion, and dose estimation.
TLDR
The Chernobyl source term available for long-range transport was estimated by integration of radiological measurements with atmospheric dispersion modeling and by reactor core radionuclide inventory estimation in conjunction with WASH-1400 release fractions associated with specific chemical groups to be several orders of magnitude greater than those associated with the Windscale and TMI reactor accidents.

A short review is presented of the results of long-standing research into the hot particles released into the environment after the Chemobyl accident, and their radiobiological significance. Due to
Thyroid doses resulting from the Ukraine Chernobyl accident--Part I: Dose estimates for the population of Kiev.
TLDR
In the context of the radiation exposure of the Ukrainian population resulting from the Chernobyl accident, the quantification of the thyroid doses due to iodine incorporation is of special interest and the investigations started with this population because of the availability of rather reliable measurements andBecause of the size of this population.

Ukrainian thyroid doses after the Chernobyl accident.
TLDR
It is possible to predict a 1.4-fold increase over spontaneous thyroid cancer morbidity for children who lived in the heavily contaminated regions of the Ukraine in 1986 (spontaneous and radiogenic to spontaneous) for the next 35 y (1991-2026).
A method of reconstruction of air activities following a nuclear accident
A method for reconstruction of the time dependence of the air activities of radionuclides is presented. The method is based on the use of the experimentally measured time dependence of an external
Modeling the resuspension of radionuclides in Ukrainian regions impacted by Chernobyl fallout.
TLDR
Three different exposure situations were developed on the basis of the collected data under the auspices of the international BIOMOVS II (BIOspheric MOdel Validation Study) project to study the resuspension of radioactive particulate.
The radiological impact of the Chernobyl accident
TLDR
The Chernobyl accident was a technological disaster that went beyond the most pessimistic scenarios of nuclear engineers, and was more sever than a maximum credible accident to which nuclear engineers referred before it happened.
