... All living things have inside them the
naturally occurring radioactive version of
carbon i.e. carbon-14. When the living
organism dies the amount of carbon-14
decays with a half-life of 5730 years. By
measuring the levels of C-14 in dead
material it is possible to carbon date the

... 1. The biological effects of exposure to UV radiation are dependent on the wavelength of the
radiation. As the penetration of UV radiation is small, the effects are limited to the eyes
2. The principle effect of excessive exposure is kerato-conjunctivitis which is more

Center for Radiological Research
The Columbia University Center for Radiological Research (CRR) was founded more than 75 years ago to better understand the human health risks associated with exposure to ionizing radiation exposure. It is the oldest and largest such research center in the world. The Center's efforts are focused on unraveling the biological and molecular mechanisms underlying radiation effects in cells, tissues, organ systems and living organisms and how radiation exposure affects human health. Its primary mission is to provide an unbiased, comprehensive and independent source of scientific information about radiation risks to governmental agencies, elected officials, non-profit institutions and private entities to enable them to make sound, evidence based policy decisions. The CRR also provides basic science training to the next generation of radiobiologists, medical and health physicists and clinical radiologists. The Center's multidisciplinary staff encompasses professionals from diverse fields including molecular biology, cell biology, radiation physics, computational physics, engineering, radiation oncology and public health.
