Description

The objective of the working group has been to bring together all recent, available, preferably published, experimental data and results of calculations, in particular from European research groups, together with detailed descriptions of the methods of measurement and calculation. The purpose is to provide a data set for all European Union Member States for the assessment of individual doses and/or to assess the validity of different approaches, and to provide an input to technical recommendations by the Article 31 group of experts and the European Commission. The quantity of interest is effective dose, E(ISO), but the comparison of measurement results obtained by different methods or groups, and comparison of measurement results and the results of calculations, is done in terms of the operational quantity ambient dose equivalent, H*(10). The final report giving the results of the investigations will be published by the European Commission Directorate General Transport and Energy. This paper gives a preview of the report.
