The UNSCEAR 2016 Report comprises the main text of the 2016 report to the General Assembly (A/71/46 and Corr.1) and four scientific annexes.
The United Nations Scientific Committee on the Effects of Atomic Radiation (UNSCEAR) assesses the levels and effects of exposure to ionizing radiation. UNSCEAR's scientific findings underpin radiation risk evaluation and international protection standards.
The scientific annexes provide the supporting scientific rationale for UNSCEAR's 2016 report to the General Assembly.
The annexes A and B provide the methodology for estimating public exposures due to radioactive discharges from electricity generation and compare the radiation exposure resulting from electricity generation including nuclear, coal, gas, oil, geothermal. solar and wind. The annexes C and D examine the biological effects of internal exposure to radiation resulting from selected internal emitters (tritium and uranium).
