This volume presents the methodology for and results of estimating values for the average SAR and the SAR distribution in man exposed to 1-mWsq cm 450-MHz radiofrequency radiation for various polarizations and body positions. The results were obtained by calorimetry and thermography from 15 scaled models of man and were analyzed by an interactive computer system. The mean SAR as averaged over the body remained relatively constant at 0.050 Wkg, with a standard deviation of or - .007 Wkg for all exposure polarization conditions and body postures. Peak SAR values were as high as 0.650 Wkg, occurring typically in the wrist.
