SATURN project

Support System for Assessment of Risks to the Public and the long term performance of remediation solutions applied in Uranium Mining Sites

The objective of the project is to develop a web based support system (SATURN) for assessment of risks to the public and the long term performance of remediation strategies in legacy sites and ongoing operations of uranium mining production centers. The project will be carried out within the ENVIRONET. The support system will include methodologies, models and databases that have been developed within the IAEA projects EMRAS I, EMRAS II, MATHREM (Development of a TECDOC on Mathematical Models for Remediation of Contaminated Lands) and other relevant projects. The support system will include online training materials and the project will carry out training courses to provide users with basic knowledge needed for performing risk assessments and to instruct them on the use of the support system.

The website

When finalized, the web site is intended to support user interaction with SATURN components and contain the following functionality:

  • Uploading and downloading of models, documentation and training materials.
  • Adding and extracting data from the databases.
  • Uploading and downloading of projects developed using the support system.
  • Tracking of reports of non-conformities and suggestions for improving SATURN.
  • Forum for users to discuss on usability and applications of SATURN.
  • Links to useful web-sites, like websites where other useful models can be found (RESRAD, Hydrus, etc).
  • Announcements of training courses and other relevant events.
