New EURADOS report: 'Overview of passive area dosimetry systems used in European countries'
M. Amor Duch Guillen, responsable of the DRM group, is the first author of a new EURADOS publication

Maria Amor Duch Guillen, responsable of the research group DRM, has recently published as first author a new report: Overview of passive area dosimetry systems used in European countries

EURADOS Working Group 3 (WG3) aims at providing information about the correct measurement of the ambient dose equivalent, short H*(10), in the environment and has a specific subgroup (WG3- SG2) that focuses on passive environmental dosimetry.

One of the initial tasks of the subgroup was to gather information on passive area dosimetry for workplace and environmental radiation monitoring. This information has been obtained from dosimetry services using passive H*(10) photon or neutron dosemeters. On the basis of surveys performed in 2012 and 2016 this report summarizes the situation of passive environmental dosimetry in European countries.
