What is a uSv?

It’s a micro-Sievert. Micro means one millionth. It’s abbreviated the Greek letter “mu”, which I don’t have on my keyboard, so I use a “u” which is sort of close.

A Sievert is a unit of radiation that has to do with the absorption rate of radiation in human flesh. Some guy with the last name Sievert named it.

I talk about it more at the bottom of the page in my first couple of posts.

I’m a fuel Support on Helicopter an concerned about the people I work with flying . Most don’t believe there’s a problem an who would believe a lowly truck driver.
