Pagination or Media Count:
The premise that beta radiation can present significant hazards to small, unprotected organisms is examined. Two generalized methods for calculating beta doses are discussed, and specific numerical calculations and results are given for simple emitter-absorber geometries. The sample results strongly indicate that beta dose would be an important component of the hazard from radioactive contaminants in the circumstances posited. Author
