Three-dimensional wind field and atmospheric dispersion models have been developed for estimating the concentration distributions of radioactive materials released into atmosphere. The field tracer experiment near the Kori nuclear power plant located over complex terrain was carried out for validating the atmospheric dispersion model. The wind fields were one of the most important factors for calculating the concentration. Therefore several numerical simulations using the measured wind data were performed to get more accurate concentration distributions compared with the analyzed values of the tracer gas. The calculated concentration distributions agreed well in the case of the usage of the more measured wind data in wind field model.
