Environmental Risk from Ionising Contaminants: Assessment and Management (ERICA)
The two major outputs of this FP6 EURATOM funded project were the ERICA Integrated Approach and the ERICA Tool. The Integrated Approach seeks to combine exposure/dose/effect assessment with risk characterisation and managerial considerations. The use of the Integrated Approach is facilitated by the ERICA Tool, which is a software programme that guides the user through the various steps, keeps records and communicates with a number of purpose-built databases.
The ERICA Tool team are now working on the next version of the tool, which will include revised wildlife concentration factors and associated updated EMCL values (following EMRAS II programme developments). News on the availabiity of this new version will be posted on this website in the future.
