Today, Wednesday 30th April 2014, our Director Bob Kerr presented the outcome of a study into the additional cosmic radiation doses received by members of the public when they are climbing high altitude peaks such as Mount Everest.

These findings were presented at the Society for Radiological Protection (SRP) annual conference which is being held in Southport.
