Definitions for "Exposure scenario"
In this report, the set of circumstances in which an individual or group was exposed to ionizing radiation. Characterization of an exposure scenario usually relies on assumptions about the activities of an individual or group, the times and locations of the activities, and the radiation environment in which the activities took place.
A set of facts, assumptions and inferences about how exposure takes place that aids the exposure assessor in evaluating, estimating, or quantifying exposures.
A combination of facts, assumptions, and inferences that define a discrete situation where potential EXPOSURE s may occur. These may include the SOURCE, the exposed population, the time frame of EXPOSURE, MICROENVIRONMENT(s), and activities. Scenarios are often created to aid EXPOSURE assessors in estimating EXPOSURE.
