Title Basis of evaluation of radioactivity in uranium mines
Original title Osnovnye principy ocenki radiacionnoj obstanovki v uranovyh rudnikah [in Russian]
Bibliographic information Oct. 1974, No.10, p.41-46. 10 ref.
Abstract The authors show that radioactivity in uranium mines is essentially a function of the latent energy of airborne daughter products of radon. They indicate the optimum volume of information necessary in order to define the noxiousness of the radioactive environment (external radiation, atmospheric contamination by α-emitting radioisotopes and by radon and its daughters), and to determine the protective measures to be taken.
