European Atlas of Natural Radiation

Acronym: EANR

Description

The European Atlas of Natural Radiation is a collection of maps displaying the levels of radioactivity caused by different natural sources in Europe. The Atlas is intended to familiarise the public with the radioactive environment, to give a more balanced view of the annual dose that it may receive from natural radioactivity and to provide reference material and generate harmonised data for the scientific community. Indeed, natural ionizing radiation is considered the largest contributor to the collective effective dose received by the world population.
