9780128020265: Fundamentals of Radiation and Chemical Safety

The subject of the book is of general interest. Experience of propagation and use of Russian version of the book shows, that the problem attracts the attention not only from professionals, but also of general public. But the non-specialists could face the difficulties in comprehending the whole book because of the complex terminology used for scientific descriptions. In his book the author tried his best to smooth this problem and to use more understandable terms, and to clear up the complex ones right on the spot. Besides all the necessary data in the nuclear physics and in biology are presented in the book. A reader does not need to search for this information in libraries and on the Internet. Thus, the book is can be quite understandable to a wide range of curious readers who are interested in the question of the true sources of danger trapping the person in the everyday life. * For the user (why should he/she buy the book? A more scientific description of the book for the actual user/scientist/expert) The book is intended for students, graduate students and professionals in the fields of physics, chemistry, biology, ecology, and a range of interdisciplinary sciences. It can be used by practitioners as a reference to find sources of more detailed information on special issues of radiation and chemical safety. There are more than three hundred references in the book. Those interested in the problems of life safety could also find here a lot of useful information For the first time in this book the problems of radiation and chemical safety are considered together on a common biophysical basis. Hazards caused by ionizing radiation and chemicals, could and should be considered together. There is a lot in common in the mechanisms of the effects of these damaging factors. Also a lot in common is in research methodology and methods of data processing. Finally, in many cases there is the same final effect, and that is cancer. Special attention has beeen paid to low doses of both radiation and chemicals. Low doses of radiation and small doses of chemicals are continuously active, regardless of our desires and lifestyle and they could influence on the entire population. The analysis of two main sources of hazard for the lives of ordinary humans is to be for the first time shown in one book and on a common basis. All necessary knowledge in nuclear physics, biology, and in the methods of processing the results of experiments has been delivered all in one book. The reader is mostly not meant to search for this information in libraries, Internet and so on.

Product Description:

Fundamentals of Radiation and Chemical Safety covers the effects and mechanisms involved in radiation and chemical exposure on humans. The mechanisms and effects of these damaging factors have many aspects in common, as do their research methodology and the methods used for data processing. In many cases of these types of exposures the same final effect can also be noted: Cancer. Low doses of radiation and small doses of chemical exposure are continuously active and they could influence the entire population. The analysis of these two main source hazards on the lives of the human population. The analysis of these two main source hazards on the lives of the human population is covered here for the first time in a single volume determining and demonstrating their common basis. Fundamentals of Radiation and Chemical Safety includes the necessary knowledge from nuclear physics, chemistry and biology, as well the methods of processing the experimental results. Intended for students, graduate students and professionals in the fields of physics, chemistry, biology, ecology, and a range of interdisciplinary sciences. The book can also be used by practitioners as a reference in order to find more detailed information on special issues of radiation and chemical safety. Tis title focuses on the effects of low radiation dosage and chemical hormesis as well as the hazards associated with, and safety precautions in radiation and chemicals, rather that the more commonly noted safety issues high level emergencies and disasters of this type. * Brings together, for the first time, the problems of radiation and chemical safety on a common biophysical basis.* Relates hazards caused by ionizing radiation and chemicals and discusses the common effective mechanisms* Outlines common methodology and data processing between radiation and regular chemical hazards* Concerns primarily with low levels of radiation and chemical exposure

About the Author:

Ilya Obodovskiy graduated from Moscow Engineering and Physics Institute (MEPhI) and then for more than 40 years followed his lecturing and research work in this Institute. His research interests are focused on radiation detection and measurement, on the effects of radiation on matter. His Ph.D. was devoted to scintillations in alcali-halide cristalls. During long period the main object of reseach for him and his laboratory was radiation processes in liquid and solid noble gases. The results of these investigations could be found in more than 70 published papers, together with his collaborators he received several patents. He was also invited as an expert to survey some radiation environment in the areas of underground nuclear explosions. In the 1990-s Obodovskiy became interested in the physico-chemical methods of detection of mutagen and carcinogen hazard. As a result he has managed a number of national and international collaborative projects, in particularly, the Project of the International Science and Technology Center. Currently I. Obodovskiy is an independent researcher, the author of some recently published books and he also continues his scientific research.
