RADAR - The External Dose Assessment System


Our basic equation:

HT =  NS x DF(TS)   

will work for internal or external source situations; in the case of external sources, we will make some minor adaptations. For point or area sources, our Dose Factors (DF) will be given per unit area, as our source strengths are defined per unit area of the source (like an area source, e.g. a contaminated ground area or patch of skin, or per unit area of a sphere at a fixed distance from the source, because the energy deposited will be proportional to the fluence at this point). For immersion in air, our DFs are given per unit activity per unit volume, as the dose will depend directly on the air concentration. But all of this follows the basic formula, which applies to internal sources as well. If you want to get specific (and I'm sure that you do!), check out the following sections:
