About the book
This book deals with uranium metal in many fields, which encompasses diverse factors that affect human and
animal life inside an environment. These fields include Nuclear Physics, Industrial Processes, Environmental
Sciences, Radiation Biology, Radiation Chemistry, Radiotherapy, Agriculture and Forestry, and Food industry.
Uranium mining is the process of extraction of uranium ore from the ground. Many different types of uranium
deposits have been discovered and mined. There are mainly three types of uranium. The book covers an
overview of Gamma Background Radiations and Measurements, Radioactive Decay, Radioecological, Applications
In Environmental Gamma Dosimetry, Gamma and Alpha Interaction, Influence of Gamma Radiation on Dynamical
Mechanical Properties, Influence of Low Dose Gamma Irradiation Treatments on The Microbial Decontamination,
Gamma Ray Ionization Enhancement in Tissues, Modeling Plastic Deformation Location in Irradiated Materials,
Radiotherapy, Radon gas, isotopes, Alpha emission rates Application of Radiation and Genetic Engineering
Techniques, Gamma Ray Measurements Using different devices. This book is expected to benefit undergraduate
and postgraduate students, researchers, teachers, practitioners, policymakers, and every individual who has a
concern for a healthy life.
