Frequent Questions

What is the relationship between exposure rate and dose rate?

Exposure rate is the amount of radiation per hour in a person’s vicinity, whereas dose rate is the biological effect of that radiation. The conversion is dependent upon several factors, but in general it can be approximated as a one-to-one ratio. So a dose rate of 1 mR/h is approximately equal to an exposure rate of 10,000 nSv/h.
