Carbaugh Shaping National Policy to Monitor and Decontaminate People after a Nuclear Event

August 2006
Congratulations to ETD's Gene Carbaugh on his appointment to the National Council on Radiation Protection and Measurements scientific committee providing recommendations for monitoring people exposed during a nuclear or radiological incident, such as nuclear reactor accident or a dirty bomb detonation. Gene will also help develop methodologies to decontaminate those exposed. The work will help the U.S. government if it is ever forced to respond to a nuclear or radiological incident. A certified health physicist, Gene was selected for this study because he has 30 years experience in applied internal dosimetry, radiological and environmental safety, radiation measurements and their interpretation, and nuclear reactor maintenance and construction.
