EVALUATION OF RADIATION DOSE FOR SELECTED SCHOOLS IN THE NORTH SECTION AT AN-NAJAF GOVERNORATE, IRAQLUBNA A. ALASADI AND MOHAMMED HAIDER AL-TAWEEL
In the present study, a gamma background radiation dose at indoor and outdoor for selected schools was determined in the north section at An-NAJAF governorate, Iraq. Measurements were performed using a portable dosimeter survey "Inspector Alert model RAP RS1, S.E. international, Inc, USA". Average of indoor and outdoor mean rate dose was ranged from (307.543 - 66.744nGy/h) respectively, Amount of minimum and maximum mean dose were ranged from (269.808 Â± 63.331 and 55.188Â± 15.832 nGy/h) and (343.398Â± 40.054 and 73.584Â±10.013 nGy/h) successively. Annual Effective Dose indoor and outdoor were enumerated between (0.33 and 0.27 mSv/y), (0.42 and 0.36 mSv/y) respectively, while the average of Annual Effective Dose ranged between (0.376 - 0.34). So, according to the results of the area under study, this would not pose a significant risk to human beings which is recommended by UNSCEAR (2000).
