  • Ionising Radiation

    Introduction The energy level of some types of radiation is high enough so that when they interact with matter they cause the formation of electrically charged particles or ion-pairs and break molecular bonds. These so-called ionising radiations are by their nature potentially harmful to life; at high doses they can be lethal and at lower doses can cause genetic damage. Ionising radiation occurs ...

  • Non-Ionising Radiation

    Pressures on the environment may occur through chemical, physical and biological agents. The subject of this study is physical agents, where physical fields are examined. Physical fields are part of the natural environment. Depending upon their properties and the surrounding conditions, physical fields are transmitted through the spaces in which we live, potentially affecting human health and ...

  • Baseline data in air quality impact studies

    The main objective of this paper is to explain not only the importance of the baseline data in air quality studies but also the general procedures and steps involved in the baseline data collection. Special considerations on the instruments and measurements for a perfect baseline data collection are also emphasized in this paper. As an example, an adequate baseline data collection procedure which ...

  • Monitoring radioactivity in nuclear and radiological emergency in a European perspective: aims and means

    After the Chernobyl nuclear power plant accident, European countries have further enhanced their capacity and infrastructure for monitoring radioactivity in their environment. This paper gives a summary of the most commonly used techniques relevant to routine and nuclear and/or radiological emergency conditions, followed by a discussion of the various network types (routine, emergency ...

  • Monitoring radon and its progeny in the environment of the vertical 15 UD Pelletron accelerator facility

    Environmental radioactivity due to radon and its progenies in the ambient air at the vertical 15 UD Pelletron accelerator facility of the Inter University Accelerator Centre, New Delhi, India was evaluated to calculate the annual effective dose to the workers and users. The radon activity was measured with an active monitor. The activity concentrations of the radon progenies were measured ...

  • Evaluating emergency response models of radiological dispersion in complex terrain

    Operational airborne releases of trace quantities of the radioactive noble gas 41Ar from the HIFAR Nuclear Research Reactor located in Sydney, Australia, are valuable for evaluating emergency response models incorporating radiological dispersion. A network of meteorological stations and GR–150 environmental gamma dose detectors are placed in the complex terrain within a 5 km radius of the site. ...

  • Survey of natural and artificial radioactivity in Tunisian soils

    A study of the natural radioactivity and artificial radioactivity of soils due to gamma ray emitters was performed in Tunisia, as part of the national programme for environment surveillance. Seventeen sites were studied. The determination of radionuclide specific concentrations in the soil samples (0–5 cm) by gamma ray spectrometry showed the following ranges: 40K (93–319 Bq/kg), 226Ra (5–50 ...
