Human exposure to radiation in the environment is pervasive. Radiation occurs at work and in the home. The consequence of exposure is an increased risk of cancer; limitation is therefore necessary. Monitoring of radiation in the environment had been conducted all over the world in order to minimize the expected effects of exposure to radiation in homes and workplaces.
The researchers used many techniques to calculate and measure the amount of various radiation types to continue the series of monitoring programs to determine the action levels of various radiation types.
Some studies conducted also to determine the health effects of radiation in many countries and the results these studies were used to plan for reducing the hazardous health and medical effects of radiation.
Aims and Scope:
1. Ionizing radiation monitoring. 2. Non-ionizing radiation monitoring. 3. Radon Monitoring in the Environment (Soil, Indoor, Building materials and Water). 4. Measurements of Radioactive elements from soil and Water. 5. Monitoring of radiation doses and health risks due to various types of radiation. 6. Radiation Protection and Environmental Shielding. 7. Monitoring the Health and Medical effects of Radiation.
