This reference explores the sources, characteristics, bioeffects, and health hazards of extremely low-frequency (ELF) fields and radio frequency radiation (RFR), analyzing current research as well as the latest epidemiological studies to assess potential risks associated with exposure and to develop effective safety guidelines.
Compiles reports and investigations from four decades of study on the effect of nonionizing electromagnetic fields and radiation on human health
Summarizing modern engineering approaches to control exposure, Electromagnetic Fields and Radiation discusses:
Introductory topics. Part 1 Extremely low-frequency fields: sources of electric and magnetic fields; bioeffects of ELF fields; epidemiological assessment studies; regulatory activities and safety trends. Part 2 Radio frequency radiation: sources of radio frequency radiation; introduction to bioelectromagnetics; bioeffects of radio frequency radiation; human and epidemiological studies; RF regulations and protection guidelines; incident field dosimetry; RF site surveys; internal field dosimetry; acronyms and abbreviations.
