This thoroughly updated and expanded edition features two new chapters on statistics for health physics and on environmental radioactivity, particularly concerning radon and radon daughters. Fresh material includes: a derivation of the stopping-power formula for heavy charged particles in the impulse approximation, a detailed discussion of beta-particle track structure and penetration in matter, an extensive description of the various interaction coefficients for photons, several new worked examples and additional end-of-chapter problems.

This book is an excellent text for graduate students in health physics, as it contains an appropriately detailed discussion about atomic and nuclear physics for such students.

It is one of the finest graduate-level texts on radiation protection. For someone teaching a graduate course on radiation protection, this is a 'must have' book. This book is an excellent text for graduate students in health physics, as it contains an appropriately detailed discussion about atomic and nuclear physics for such students. Major strengths of the book are that it contains rigorous discussions about radioactive decay, interaction of radiation with matter, statistics of counting and methods for shielding calculations.

Atoms, Radiation, and Radiation Protection. ISBN: 978-3-527-40606-7. Atoms, Radiation, and Radiation Protection was written from material developed by the author over a number of years of teaching courses in the Oak Ridge Resident Graduate Program of the University of Tennessee's Evening School. The traditional units of radiation dosimetry are used in much of the book; SI units are employed in discussing newer subjects, such as ICRP Publications 26 and 30. SI abbreviations are used throughout.

Understanding atomic structure and the physical mechanisms of radiation interactions is the foundation on which much of the current practice of radiological health protection is based. The work covers the detection and measurement of radiation and the statistical interpretation of the data. The procedures that are used to protect man and the environment from the potential harmful effects of radiation are thoroughly described. Basic principles are illustrated with an abundance of worked examples that exemplify practical applications.

JAMES E. TURNER is a retired Corporate Fellow from Oak Ridge National Laboratory and an Adjunct . Dr. Turner has published widely in radiation physics and dosimetry and also on the chemical toxicity of metal ions. He is the author of three textbooks. TURNER is a retired Corporate Fellow from Oak Ridge National Laboratory and an Adjunct Professor of Nuclear Engineering at the University of Tennessee.

Talk about Atoms, Radiation and Radiation Protection

Most of the topics (basic radiation physics, detection, interaction with matter) in this book are covered in more depth in other texts (Krane, Knoll), but this book does a good job at covering the specific topics having more to do with human interaction. However, this is only ~1/2 of the whole book.

Solid and practical, purchased for graduate course in radiation transport

The books is outstanding. The problems are great. Do not need another book to understand this book.

I think this book it's a very deep and complete guide about the application of physic to te medicine. I recommend this book to the student and to the theacher .

This is a must have book if you work in the Health Physics world! RIP Jim Turner.

I haven't fully looked at the book yet, but so far it seems not bad
This text by James Earl Turner, Ph.D., M.S.(physics), M.S. (Industrial Hygiene), Certified by American Board of Health Physics), is a relatively concise but thorough treatment of the underpinning results of physics necessary for professional work in the field of protecting workers, the public, and the environment from harmful effects of ionizing or nuclear radiations. I have used this text as a secondary text to that of Herman Cember's text in other courses, and am now using it as the principal required reading for a course in Nuclear Environmental Protection (NEP520)in the Spring semester at The Catholic University of America, in Washington, DC, 2013. Dr. Turner, at his passing a couple of years ago, was probably the greatest theoretical physicist in the field of radiation protection at the time of his death, and also interested in teaching the practical information needed for the typical health physicist in performing duties related to the assessment of radiation doses and risks and providing protection against undue exposures. There is a 3rd edition that has been published. I am teaching from the second edition, so one should be sure which edition is desired and being purchased. Used 2nd editions should provide all the basics needed for adequate professional work. Sincerely, Allen Brodsky, Sc.D. Adjunct Professor, faculty of Catholic U, and Georgetown U in Washington, DC.
