NCTE 350 - Radiation Field Sampling Techniques and Limitations

3 credits
For science majors. In depth application of health physics methods for sampling radiation environments. Illustrates job-site mapping of radiation conditions, selection of equipment for environmental radiation detection, and limitations of devices with respect to environmental conditions. Utilizes case studies for students to follow in mapping radiation  environments for high and low level radiation levels, high and low contamination levels. Teaches students how to correctly post radiation areas for entry and equipment removal. This course is primarily a hands-on class with respect to radiation detection equipment and will require the student to wear radiation protective clothing. The included lab exercises are imbedded into the class as the course' primary purpose; hence, there is no  need for a separate lab.  All exercises are conducted at either local Tri-Cities or Hanford businesses that routinely deal with the appropriate radiation materials involved.
