Technologically enhanced naturally occurring radioactive materials (TENORM) touch many aspects of our life. Alterations of the natural composition of rocks during mining and processing may results in an increment of radiation risk to not only humans but wild plants and animals. Each particular type of TENORM determines a unique scenario of exposure. The “PORANO” project is focused on three aspects related to this theme:
methods of monitoring of TENORM occurrence,
methods of applying radiation risk assessment,
