3Absorbed dose is broken out into components depending on the detector.

  • for SRAG data, "SAA" and "GCR" contributions are estimated based on the ISS trajectory and a geomagnetic field model
  • for DOSTEL, GCR and SAA are estimated based on count rate
  • for passive detectors (TLD, OSLD, track-etch) High- and Low-LET are determined by detector thresholds
  • (in general, TLD and OSLD are sentitive to LET ≤ 10 keV/un; track etch (CR-39, PADC) are sensitive to LET ≥ 10 keV/um))
