On March 15, 33 experts from the Department’s National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA) arrived in Japan along with more than 17,200 pounds of equipment. After initial deployments at U.S. consulates and military installations in Japan, these teams have utilized their unique skills, expertise and equipment to help assess, survey, monitor and sample areas for radiation. The 33 team members joined another six DOE personnel already in Japan.

  • RodAdams RodAdams @Bradley - You are confused. There IS a direct conversion between Rem and Sieverts; they are both measures of biological effect. 1 sievert = 100 Rem.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sievert

    There is also a direct conversion between Rad and Gray, they are both measures of absorbed radiation dose of ionizing radiation. 1 Gray = 100 Rad.

  • emerson85 emerson85 I could be wrong, but I do not believe this is correct. It is my understanding that 1 rem = 10mSv. I have found that people trying to be alarmist use rems, because it sounds like a higher value, as well as some historical anti-nuclear biases generated during the cold war. On chart 3, if Sieverts had been the unit of measurement, the top of the estimated FYD would have read '> 20mSv', which, if anyone does any research, would suggest no harm whatsoever. Please feel free to correct me if I am wrong, I am quite open to learning :) 2 years ago

  • bradleyreinke Bradley Reinke, Quality Engineer at Danaher Corporation Sv and Mrem do not have a conversion. This is two different types of measurements. Where they are close in nature. The understanding from a biology and physics stand point are totally different. I see all the time that there are conversions for it. But in actuality the conversion is not a true conversion but more of an inferred average. But to put this in simple terms that those outside of the nuclear community can understand converting between sv and rem is like converting from water absorption in relation to a sprinkler or a bathtub. Sv refers to effective dose of radiation , absorbed by a person is obtained by averaging over all irradiated tissues Also known as whole body dose. Rem is known as absorbed dose and a weighting factor (some tissue is more susceptible to damage than others. So the factors change by the body part. Eyes, thyroid, blood and reproductive organs and the most sensitive.) I hope this help you understand the difference. 2 years ago

  • karenmstreet Karen Street at Friends General Conference I very much appreciate this, but could you use Sv like all the media reports? Going back and forth is confusing, and yes I know the conversion. Or at least show both! 2 years ago
