European Atlas of Natural Radiation

Did you know that airborne radon, a radioactive gas, is the largest source of natural radiation? Its particles are the second most common cause of lung cancer after smoking. 

JRC launched a comprehensive European Atlas of Natural Radiation together with experts from 60 institutes. A valuable encyclopedia, with beautiful images and striking charts that provides reference levels and harmonised data for scientists, authorities and for anyone who wants to know more about their natural radioactive environment.
