Advances in Radiation Biology, Volume 5 focuses on the various phases of development in radiation biology. This book discusses the radiobiological implications of statistical variations in energy deposition by ionizing radiations; fundamental physics of energy deposition; and radiological assessment of nuclear power stations. The environmental transport of released radionuclides; effects of continuous irradiation on animal populations; and radiation-induced life-shortening and premature aging are also deliberated. This text likewise covers the production of radiation damage in a heterogeneous system; radical identification by EPR; redistribution of cells through the division cycle; and iso-effect formulas. This publication is valuable to radiation biologists, including those interested in radiobiology.
