Special issue of Radiation Protection Dosimetry on Mayak worker dosimetry


An upcoming special issue of Radiation Protection Dosimetry will focus on findings of the Russian Health Studies Program‘s Project 2.4: Mayak Worker Dosimetry. Project 2.4 reconstructed doses to workers first employed at the Mayak Production Association in Ozyorsk, Russia between 1948 and 1982. USTUR faculty members authored or coauthored three of the papers, and an additional 13 were authored/coauthored by USTUR adjunct faculty member, Dr. Alan Birchall (Global Dosimetry Ltd., United Kingdom).
