    EPCARD stands for 'European Program Package for the Calculation of Aviation Route Doses'. This comprehensive online calculator is produced by the GSF-National Research Center for Environment and Health (Germany). You can calculate cosmic radiation dose received en route between any two airports (on any given day), or the dose rate in the plane for a given elevation and position.

    IAEA Information Channel for a 'live' view of incidents (Nuclear & Radiological) reported under the International Nuclear Event Rating Scale (INES). Typical coverage includes significant events in nuclear power plants, research reactors, nuclear fuel cycle facilities and occurrences involving radiation sources or the transport of radioactive material. [December 2023 - note that this channel only now shows 12 months of data. Look elsewhere in our links section of a way to view all events].

    The IAEA Accident Response Publications are not for the faint hearted. They provide an extremely useful description of the deterministic effects of ionising radiation, including the causes of overexposure, how that exposure was brought under control, the effects on the exposed individuals and their medical treatment. Featured accidents include Cochabamba, Chernobyl, Gilan, Goiânia, Sarov, and Tammiku.

    • Incidents

    This link takes you to an extensive database which compiles general data on radiological accidents/incidents and other events which have produced radiation casualties. Listed events include acute radiation causalities, chronic radiation injury and accidents releasing large quantities of radioactive materials. The resource is very interesting but we do not warrant its accuracy in anyway.
