Japan Atomic Energy Research Institute (JAERI) Proceedings
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Japan Atomic Energy Research Institute (JAERI) have been exchanging radiation science information under the terms of a Memorandum of Understanding supported by both organizations. In 1989 and 1994, the agencies held jointly sponsored workshops on residual radioactivity and recycling. The first workshop was held in the United States and the second in Japan. A third workshop was held in Las Vegas, Nevada in November, 2001. This workshop explored recent scientific advances that contribute to improved human health risk assessments for exposures to radionuclides at environmental levels.
Experts in radiation risk assessment from Japan and the United States assembled to present new information. Twenty six talks were presented under the following four topics: Radiobiology, Current Issues in Dosimetry, Developments in Radiation Risk Assessment and Current Issues in Risk Management and Radiation Protection.
