NATURAL RADIOACTIVITY: Protection against Natural Ionizing Radiation

05/02/2018 to 09/02/2018
Expected Outcome: 

Different aspects are developed e.g. identification of natural source, effects on human health, measurement techniques and mitigation techniques. During the course, 8 hours of laboratory are scheduled. During this practical part, the participants realize physical measurements and use numerical codes to evaluate the dose of ionizing radiations received in practical cases.

Intended Participants: 

The course is a Seminar of the UPV Master on Industrial Safety and Environment, offered to CHERNE institutions as far as places are free.

The participants must have a basic knowledge in chemistry and in nuclear physics (type of radioactive disintegration, period of a nuclear emitter,…)
Number of Participants: 
10 Selection, if necessary, at home institutions.
Time Schedule: 

20 hours / 1 week
The course combines lectures, computer exercises, and measurement of indoor radon.
