Tony-
Pis follow up with RES (or leave a note for next Team Dose assessor to check the status of this request to RES Since it was sent on Thursday.

Ideally since RES completed the worst case runs yesterday or Friday, they can run this to verify the source term from RASCAL.
Thanks

This is a non-urgent request. When RES is done with the previous request for a “pessimistic” case for Tokyo. We would like to have MELCOR calculate source terms that would be related to the scenarios used previous RASCAL runs that we had sent to NARAC.

Please let us know if this is something that you can do, and when we may see the source terms. To repeat, this is not urgent, but is something we would like to have in the operations center in order to determine if the 50-mile evacuation recommendation should be reduced.
