AbstractStudents will design and carry out a measurement study on "Extremely Low Frequency" or "Radio Frequency" electromagnetic fields. Firstly, we will study the dependence of exposure on distance to environmental and household sources. Secondly, we will analyze typical exposure patterns emerging from everyday microenvironments. The measurements are used for dose and health risk calculations.
Objective- Developing knowledge about important sources of ELF and RF electromagnetic fiels in everyday life
- Gaining experience in developing concepts for environmental measurement studies
- Performing measurements using research instruments and statistical analyses
- Learning about associations between electromagnetic field exposure and health.
