By National Council on Radiation Protection and Measurements

This document develops tips on radiation exposures happening in house actions. Radiation chance estimates for carcinogenesis, genetic results and nonstochastic results have been applied to boost danger comparisons on which profession publicity limits are dependent. a massive results of this technique is a differentiation in limits in response to age and intercourse. significant sections of the file deal with radiation environments in area, radiation publicity to team of workers, radiobiological good points of the distance radiation atmosphere, and radiation safeguard criteria in area. The record additionally identifies wanted study correct to radiation exposures in area actions.

RADIOBIOLOGICAL FEATURES OF THE SPACE RADIATION ENVIRONMENT tumors in rats after whole body irradiation with 13MeV protons. The number of rats in each dose group was small but all irradiated rats developed tumors. Burns et al. (1975)exposed rats to 10 MeV protons and compared the induction of skin tumors with that resulting from exposure to electrons. They estimated the value of the RBE to be about three. The reduction of the tumorigeniceffect with fractionation of the exposures to protons suggested repair, and the curvilinear response to single doses was typical of low-LET radiation.

The Q function, as given in ICRP (1977a), was approximated by a power function between various LET limits and the average value calculated by integrating model LET spectra developed by Heinrich (1977)weighted by this function. 1 behind 20 g ~ m and the cutoff LET used (20 keV pm-l of water). Heinrich's LET spectrum is approximately correct for high inclination (57') space tramport shuttle type orbits. Orbits of lower inclinations and higher altitudes have lower average LET and Q values. 5 Measured and Calculated LET Spectra As mentioned above, LET distributions are required for the detennination of average Q values for the radiations present in space.

2 (Petrov et al, 1975) shows LET spectra measured in Soviet spacecraft. 4. S. missions are shown in Fig. 3 (Benton and Parnell, 1988). The abscissa is the LET, in water. The detectors were either stowed aboard the spacecraft or worn as dosimeters in the crew's flight suits. , 1985). S. missions. Spectra labeled Nos. 2 and 3 (Cosmos 782 and 936 respectively)were measured using electronicspectrometers, spectra No. 1(Cosmos 1129)used special nuclear emulsions, while spectra No. 4 measurements were made on Cosmos 936 using plastic nuclear track detectors.
