NARAC: Interdisciplinary Science in Support of Public Safety

Building 2400, Room 2420

The National Atmospheric Release Advisory Center is a national support and resource center for emergency planning, real-time assessment, emergency response, and detailed studies of atmospheric releases of nuclear, radiological, chemical, biological, and hazardous natural materials. Located at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL), NARAC provides timely and accurate plume predictions to aid emergency preparedness and response efforts in protecting the public and the environment.  In this seminar, Dr. Osuna will describe the process that NARAC employs when responding to a hazardous atmospheric release.  She will highlight the multi-disciplinary contributions to NARAC, discuss the response to recent real-world events, and share advancements that NARAC is integrating into the operational approach.
