6th NIR Workshop

EUR 15,00

Non-Ionizing Radiation. CD-Proceedings of the 6th International Non-Ionizing Radiation Workshop Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, October 14-17, 2008. Munich: International Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection; 2009.

Content: This CD features lectures by internationally recognized experts in all non-ionizing radiation (NIR) specialties on characteristics, dosimetry, mechanisms of interaction, biology and health effects, standards and protective measures covering all NIR, from static fields to ultraviolet radiation.

Special attention is given to the situation in Latin America and the approaches to NIR protection adopted in varous countries.
