Sampling Airborne Radioactivity

A Monograph of the ACGIH(R) Air Sampling Instruments Committee

Electronic (digital download/no shipping)

Member - $20.00
NonMember - $25.00


This monograph will be included in a future ACGIH® Signature Publication that will be entitled: Air Sampling Technologies: Principles and Applications. It provides an introduction to radioactivity and a review of measurement of airborne radioactive nuclides. Specific radiological properties of a contaminant must be integrated with good basic gas and particulate air sampling practices. This monograph explains the types of radiation, principle of operation of radiation detectors and their calibration and applications, counting statistics, effect of background radiation, and the special aspects of sampling that should be considered when measuring radioactivity of airborne material. Radiation dosimetry, protection criteria, and standards are also discussed.
