NCRP - Radiological Terms

Post by OscarG » Tue Dec 10, 2013 3:41 pm

Many times, we use radiological terms with an "approximate" meaning, so when I found this short document with precise explanations, I thought it would be a good thing to share.

Very informative, thanks. I have a question about
skyshine: Radiation scattered back to Earth by the atmosphere above a radiation-producing facility.
Is that normally something one needs to worry about?

Yes, depending on the source of radiation, skyshine could be an important component, particularly for long term exposures.

Thank you very much. I used to think this was just a joke that seasoned scientists used to play on new graduates.

This is very helpful!!
