Data comprise biological and ecological half-life values for marine, freshwater, terrestrial and riparian organisms. The database includes 1908 biological half-life values for 52 elements across a range of wildlife groups (marine, freshwater, terrestrial and riparian). The compilation of values from a range of sources was conducted by an international working group under the auspices of an International Atomic Energy Agency programme.
Abstract: EURADOS Working Group 2 has developed a system for a self-sustained programme of regular intercomparisons (Figel, M. Report to Council, WG02-SG2, 2007). The first intercomparison, for whole body dosemeters in photon fields (IC2008), was carried out in 2008. The following year an intercomparison was organized for extremity dosemeters in photon and beta fields. These two intercomparisons were assessed by EURADOS Council as successful and it was agreed to hold a further intercomparison, IC2010, for...
Abstract: EURADOS Working Group 2 has developed a system for a self-sustained programme of regular intercomparisons (ICs), (Figel, M. Report to Council, WG02-SG2, 2007). The first four ICs, which were all for whole body dosemeters in photon fields, were carried out between 2008 and 2014 (IC2008, IC2010, IC2012, IC2014). In addition, three ICs with different scopes were carried out, two for extremity dosemeters in photon and beta fields (IC2009ext, IC2015ext) and one for whole-body dosemeters...

Abstract: EURADOS Working Group 2 has developed a system for a self-sustained programme of regular dosemeter intercomparisons (ICs), (Figel, M. Report to Council, WG02-SG2, 2007). ICs for whole body dosemeters were carried out in 2008, 2010, 2012, 2014, 2016 and 2018. In addition, four ICs with different scopes were carried out, two for extremity dosemeters in photon and beta fields (IC2009ext and IC2015ext) and two for whole-body dosemeters in neutron fields (IC2012n and IC2017n). This...
Abstract: EURADOS Working Group 2 (WG2) has developed a system for a self-sustained programme of regular intercomparisons. Four intercomparisonsfor whole body dosemeters (IC2008, IC 2010, IC2012and IC2012n) and one for extremity dosemeters (IC2009) have now been carried out. The number of participating systems has increased significantly from 62 in 2008 to 88 in 2012. IC2012was carried out by an organization group (OG) composed of Andrew McWhan and Wioletta Dobrzynska (Cavendish Nuclear Limited, co-ordinator and co-ordinating...
Visions for Radiation Dosimetry over the Next Two Decades – Strategic Research Agenda of the European Radiation Dosimetry GroupWerner Rühm, Elena Fantuzzi, Roger Harrison, Helmut Schuhmacher, Filip Vanhavere, Joao Alves, Jean-Francois Bottolier-Depois, Paola Fattibene, Željka Knežević, María Antonia Lopez, Sabine Mayer, Saveta Miljanić, Stefan Neumaier, Pawel Olko, Hannes Stadtmann, Rick Tanner & Clemens Woda
Abstract: The European Radiation Dosimetry Group (EURADOS) comprises a self-sustainable network of more than 60 European institutions such as reference and research laboratories, dosimetry services and companies, as well as more than 300 scientists active in the field of radiation dosimetry. The aim of the network is to promote research and development and European cooperation in the field of dosimetry of ionizing radiation and its implementation in routine practice, in order to contribute to compatibility...
EURADOS Working Group 2 (WG2) has developed a system for self-sustained intercomparisonexercises (ICs) for individual monitoring services (IMS) for external radiation. The first IC, for whole body dosemeters in photon fields, was carried out in 2008 (IC2008). As a next step in the programme, an intercomparison was organized for extremity dosemeters in photon and beta fields, with 59 dosimetry systems from across Europe. IC2009 was organized by an organization group (OG) consisting of Tom Grimbergen...

Introduction: On June 30th, 2016, the “First EURADOS Stakeholder Workshop” was held at the Helmholtz Center Munich (HMGU) in Neuherberg, Germany. The workshop was jointly organized by the HMGU and the EURADOS Office in conjunction with the 57thEURADOS Council meeting, which took place on June 29thand July 1st, also at the HMGU. In the frame of the “European Joint Programme for the Integration of Radiation Protection Research”, the CONCERT project funded by the European Commission...
Data supplement for: Agreement of analytical and simulation-based estimates of the required land depth in climate modelsNorman J. Steinert, J. Fidel González Rouco, Camilo A. Melo Aguilar, Félix García-Pereira, Elena García-Bustamante, Philipp De Vrese, Vladimir Alexeev, Johann H. Jungclaus, Stephan J. Lorenz & Stefan Hagemann
Many current-generation climate models have land components that are too shallow. Under climate change conditions, the long-term warming trend at the surface propagates deeper into the ground than the commonly used 3-10m. Shallow models alter the terrestrial heat storage and distribution of temperatures in the subsurface, influencing the simulated land-atmosphere interactions. Previous studies focusing on annual timescales suggest that deeper models are required to match subsurface-temperature observations and the classic analytical heat conduction solution. However,...
IDEAS Guidelines (Version 2) for the Estimation of Committed Doses from Incorporation Monitoring DataC.M. Castellani, J.W. Marsh, C. Hurtgen, E. Blanchardon, P. Berard, A. Giussani & M.A. Lopez
ABstract: Doses from intakes of radionuclides cannot be measured but must be assessed from monitoringdata, such as whole body, urine or faecaldata. Such assessments require applicationofbiokinetic and dosimetric models, and the assessor may well have to make assumptions about factors such as the pattern of intake and properties of the material. Intercomparison exercises (Doerfel 2000) have shown a wide range in doses that can be obtained from the same data set as a result of...
Abstract: EURADOS working group 2 has developed a system for self-sustained intercomparison exercises for individual monitoring services for external radiation (Figel, M. Report to Council, WG02-SG2, 2007). As a result the first intercomparison exercise was carried out in 2008 (IC2008), for whole body dosemeters in photon fields with 62 participating dosimetry systems from participants across Europe. The IC2008 was organized by an organization group composed by Tom Grimbergen from NRG (co-ordinator and co-ordinating laboratory), Andrew...
ISO/IEC 17025 Guidance for IMS: Suggestions on How to Interpret and Implement the Requirements Including Examples from Accredited LaboratoriesBiljana Petrovic, Henrik Roed, Raul Martín, Ana M. Romero, Panagiotis Askounis, Liam Buchanan, Francesco Rossi, Robert Bernat & Joao G. Alves
Abstract: Individual monitoring of external radiation is an activity usually regulated by national regulatory bodies in most countries. Regulations generally contain technical requirements to be met by the individual monitoring services (IMS), in order to ensure that the measurements are correct and therefore the dosimetry results are reliable. In some countries, the requirements include or even consist of the accreditation of the service according to the standard ISO/IEC 17025: “General requirements for the competence of...
