The NKS-B PardNor activity addresses current shortcomings in modelling of ingestion doses for Nordic decision support. Nordic preparedness authorities apply in principle either the ARGOS or the RODOS decision support system for consequence prognoses and optimisation of countermeasure strategies. In both of these systems, the integrated ingestion dose module is identical with the ECOSYS model developed in Germany shortly after the Chernobyl accident (Müller & Pröhl, 1993). A problem in this context is that practically all generic parameterisation in ECOSYS took place many years ago and does not reflect state-of the-art knowledge. Also, the ECOSYS model was parameterised for Bavarian conditions, and with respect to a range of input factors, it is clear that location specific information is required to obtain reliable dose estimates. Nevertheless, the model is generally still run in RODOS and ARGOS with its Bavarian default parameters.
