The estimation of the dispersion of an airborne radioactive release presupposes the knowledge of the windfield and the level of diffusion in the region under consideration.The presence of the sea breeze requires particular attention due to the development of circulation patterns and reduced mixing depths within the boundary layer.The present work constitutes a part of the effort to include the sea breeze capability in the ADREA-I code, a transient three dimensional transport code, under development in NRCPS “Demokritos”, and refers specifically to the sea breeze analysis along the Alaskan sea coast . This case has been selected on the way of looking for a well documented sea breeze analytical study in the open literature suitable for comparisons with the model adopted in the present analysis.It is shown that the generalized three dimensional k-1 model introduced in ADREA-I, canbe also faithfully applied to sea breeze calculations.
