DOE-HDBK-1122-99 Module 2.09, Fundamental Academic Training Instructor's Guide Phase I; Module 2.09, Study Guide - Environmental Monitoring

Functional areas: Radiological Control, Technician Training, Study Guide, Environmental Monitoring
Environmental monitoring plays a large role in the field of radiological control. Environmental monitoring is used to estimate human population doses, determine the impact a site has on the environment, monitor for unplanned releases as well as quantifying planned releases, and gives us data useful in determining pathway data. This data can then be analyzed, and such information as critical nuclides and critical pathways can then be determined. The Radiological Control organization is generally interested in determining activity in the ambient air, in surface water and sediments, in ground water wells, as well as ambient dose rates in the environment.
