  • Metrology
  • The phrase "standard source" is also used as a de facto term in the more specific context of being a calibration standard source in ionising radiation metrology. (wikipedia.org)
  • The UK National Physical Laboratory publishes a good practice guide through its Ionising Radiation Metrology Forum concerning the provision of such equipment and the methodology of calculating the alarm levels to be used. (wikipedia.org)
  • Advisor
  • I'm personally very happy that the crew puts their trust in me and Jacob, the other radiation safety advisor, to be responsible for their safety. (greenpeace.org)
  • measure radiation
  • The Extravehicular Activity Radiation Monitoring (EVARM) will be the first to measure radiation dosage encountered by the eyes, internal organs and skin during specific spacewalks, and relate it to the type of activity, location and other factors. (nasa.gov)
  • Thermo Scientific
  • The Thermo Scientific™ Matrix MRDS™ system incorporates Thermo Scientific™ Natural Background Rejection (NBR) technology, which quickly distinguishes between natural radiation and artificial sources using an intelligent self-calibrating process. (thermofisher.com)
  • Achieve simple and rapid area monitoring with the turnkey, drop-and-go Thermo Scientific™ Area Monitoring Package for nuclear power plants. (thermofisher.com)
  • risks
  • After the first days of inevitable seasickness, I'm now pretty sea-proof and ready to challenge the radiation risks, and any obstruction of our scientific mission by the Japanese government. (greenpeace.org)
  • We had only measured this one post on that visit, and given it had only been recently installed we had hoped this would mark the start of a new initiative by the authorities to comprehensively decontaminate populated areas, and do more to keep the public informed of radiation risks. (greenpeace.org)
  • amounts
  • Another explosion could happen, releasing huge amounts of radiation, or an aftershock could lead to the collapse of the reactor building. (greenpeace.org)
  • Space travel can be dangerous for humans because of the large amounts of radiation - particularly Extra Vehicular Activity, or EVA, when an astronaut is spacewalking outside the shielded walls of his or her spacecraft and protected only by a spacesuit. (nasa.gov)
  • continuously
  • Measuring less than 3 inches (7.62) long and less than an inch (2.54 cm) thick, each badge contains a silicon chip called a Metal Oxide Silicon Field Effect Transistor (MOSFET) that continuously measures total radiation. (nasa.gov)
  • The badge contains a silicon chip specially designed by Thomson-Nielsen - called a Metal Oxide Silicon Field Effect Transistor (MOSFET) - that continuously measures total radiation dosage and a connector that plugs into the badge reader. (nasa.gov)
  • Radiation levels in Japan are continuously monitored in a number of locations, and a large number stream their data to the internet. (wikipedia.org)
  • Additionally, a condition for both categories is that it have the ability to monitor continuously and record its results. (wikipedia.org)
  • readings
  • Earlier this month The Association for Citizens and Scientists Concerned About Internal Radiation Exposures raised concerns that the Japanese government was manipulating radiation readings with these official monitoring stations. (greenpeace.org)
  • For 75% of them, the radiation readings close to the posts were lower than readings for their immediate surroundings. (greenpeace.org)
  • worker
  • For instance, clean area can be access by anyone (public) while supervise and controlled area are restricted areas which can only be accessed by radiation worker. (myhealth.gov.my)
  • concentrations
  • Even if the workers are successful in cleaning houses and workplaces, the risk of recontamination is high, with every gust of wind, rain storm, or spring snow melt bringing new concentrations of radiation down from the hills. (greenpeace.org)
