Refereed papers from the ERICA consortium

A special issue of the Journal of Environmental Radioactivity (Volume 99, issue 9) edited by B.J. Howard and C-M. Larsson was dedicated to the ERICA project (read Preface).

The papers contained within the special issue provide the scientific basis for all the various elements of the ERICA Integrated Approach and the ERICA Tool together with the results of some case study applications.
