Title

Space Radiation Quality Factors and the Delta-ray Dose and Dose-Rate Effectiveness Factor

Document Type

Article

Abstract

In this paper, the authors recommend that the dose and dose-rate effectiveness factor used for space radiation risk assessments should be based on a comparison of the biological effects of energetic electrons produced along a cosmic ray particles path in low fluence exposures to high dose-rate gamma-ray exposures of doses of about 1 Gy. Methods to implement this approach are described.
