In-flight determination of LET spectra and route doses using CR-39 detectors

The main result of the many measurements carried out at aviation altitudes is the provision of an extensive data base on radiation dose rates for high linear energy transfer as a function of altitude, latitude and stage of solar cycle 23. The European Union Council Directive 96/29/EURATOM lays out the requirements for each member state with regard to monitoring of radiation doses received by aircrew.

The results of the present work will contribute to these requirements both in the provision of dose equivalent rates and the development of passive instrumentation for dosimetry at aviation altitudes.
