Book Description

This book explores environmental physical agents and their potential effect on public and occupational health. It considers the theory, current research, and applications of physical agents including noise, ionizing radiation protection and non ionizing radiation protection, and explores the monitoring, measurement, modeling and mitigation of each of these.



Features:





  • Covers all three physical agents in one comprehensive book


  • Presents the latest results from research, as well as theory


  • Contributed to by a panel of international experts
