Tony,

Can you ask (Randy Gauntt) the Sandia representative, to contact John Nasstrom at NARAC, email listed below or phone: 925-423-6738.

NARAC has been asked to perform more runs with any updated release rates re-created from the accidents.

They heard Sandia is trying to reassess the source term/release rates.

Thanks, see you when you get back!

Attention PMT:

Attached is the Japan press release with their source term estimates for Fukushima.

As I discussed with Bruce Watson and Michelle Hart on the phone today, DOE asked us to contact you to see if you could provide any assistance with the following:

– Information the NRC Japan team may have on the basis and details of Japan’s source term estimates (including any assumed release times)
– Contacts in NRC (RST, PMT, Japan) that may have information that may help in refined estimates of Fukushima source terms.

Thank you looking into this, and for the invaluable assistance you have already provided for this event.

Sincerely,
John Nasstrom
