  • Challenges in Radiation Protection and Nuclear Safety Regulation of the Nuclear Legacy

    A NATO workshop was held in September 2007 under the Security through Science framework to consider the current challenges in regulation of the nuclear legacy. The overall objective was to share East-West competence and experience in radiation protection and nuclear safety supervision of installations built during the cold war, particularly in ...

  • North Carolina Administrative Code Volume 13, Title 15A (Chapters 5 to 12)

    This official version of the North Carolina Administrative Code contains the Administrative Rules, credits, and references to administrative and appellate court decisions relating to the Department of Environment and Natural ...

  • Radiation Hormesis and the Linear-No-Threshold Assumption

    Current radiation protection standards are based upon the application of the linear no-threshold (LNT) assumption, which considers that even very low doses of ionizing radiation can cause cancer. The radiation hormesis hypothesis, by contrast, proposes that low-dose ionizing radiation is beneficial. In this book, the author examines all facets of ...

  • Causes and Environmental Implications of Increased UV-B Radiation

    Since the realisation that the ozone layer protecting the earth is suffering massive depletion, atmospheric science has been increasingly in the spotlight. It is recognised that we need to increase our knowledge and understanding of the likely impact that increases in UV-B radiation will have on life on earth.Charting research that encompasses the ...

  • The Sun and Space Weather

    This second edition is a great enhancement of literature which will help the reader get deeper into the specific topics. There are new sections included such as space weather data sources and examples, new satellite missions, and the latest results. At the end a comprehensive index is given which will allow the reader to quickly find his topics of ...

  • Fundamentals for the Assessment of Risks from Environmental Radiation

    Human health, aquatic, and terrestrial ecosystems are all under threat from increasing levels of environmental radiation from a variety of sources, many of them anthropogenic. This book surveys the current state of our knowledge of the fundamental processes that result from the interaction of environmental (both ionizing and UV) with living ...

  • Laser Safety

    Covering both underlying theory and practical applications, Laser Safety provides a unique and readily-understandable review of current laser safety. This resource explains in detail the biological effects of laser radiation, particularly on the eye, and the provisions and requirements of the international laser safety standard IEC 60825-1, ...

  • Environmental Protection Against Radioactive Pollution

    The reports presented here discuss: General estimation of the radioactive contamination of the territories and radiation hazardous objects, including former military test sites, areas influenced due to Chernobyl and Mayak accidents, and territories of oil fields; Techniques and procedures of radioecological monitoring; Techniques of determining ...

  • Unattended Radiation Sensor Systems for Remote Applications

    The past decade has provided remarkable advances in the field of radiation sensor systems and born witness to new and innovative applications of these technologies. Remote sensor systems have been used for areas as diverse as the study of the composition of asteroids in space, homeland defense technologies, environmental protection, forensic ...

  • Equidosimetry

    Considerable experience with radioecological and related ecological research on terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems has been achieved, especially after the Chernobyl accident. The combined effects of the radiation, chemical and biological factors, after a contamination of the environment and during its remediation have shown an interactive ...

  • Ultraviolet Radiation in the Solar System

    UV radiation is an important part in the electromagnetic spectrum since the energy of the photons is great enough to produce important chemical reactions in the atmospheres of planets and satellites of our Solar System, thereby affecting the transmission of this radiation to the ground and its physical properties. Scientists have used different ...
