Transcript of Chernobyl

Chernobyl/Pripyat
May 2009

What does those numbers means to you?
1. Background radiation. In regions close to certain rock deposits can exceed 0.5 microsieverts/hour. People living in these areas are subjected to this
permanently. It's way higher than working with x-ray equipment.

2. Cosmic radiation. Most people will encounter this, when flying a commercial jet. Typical
radiation levels when flying at 35,000 ft (11,000m) would be 3-4 microsieverts/hour.
