Radiation exposure of aircraft crew caused by cosmic radiation is regulated in Europe by the European Community Council Directive 96/29/EURATOM and implemented into law in almost every country of the European Union. While the galactic cosmic radiation (GCR) leads on average to an exposure of about 3 mSv per year, solar cosmic radiation can lead to 1 mSv per one subsonic flight during solar storm periods. Compared to GCR, solar cosmic radiation shows a much softer proton spectrum but with a… CONTINUE READING
