Glossary of Nuclear Terms For the Development of Public Information Reports Regarding Risks Related to Nuclear/Radiological Accidents (2011)

Under its Community Radiation Information series, EPPR produced the “Glossary of Nuclear Terms for Development of Public Information Reports Regarding Risks Related to Nuclear/Radiological Accidents” to assist public information specialists in communicating radiation risks to the public and media. The glossary (in draft) was used to prepare press releases during the exercise at the “Nerpa” Shipyard in July 2010. EPPR presented the Glossary of Nuclear Terms as a deliverable to the Nuuk Ministerial as a tool to improve communication of nuclear and radiological information to the public.  The Glossary is also available in English:
