We work in a very broad field. Health physics includes topics as diverse as lasers, radon, accelerators, internal dosimetry, emergency preparedness and response, radiography, external dosimetry, military applications, fate and transport modeling, environmental protection, radiation biology, and epidemiology – just to name a few. If you are like me, the articles that most often catch my attention are those that relate to my particular corner of our field. But looking over the contents of the February issue of Health Physics, I was struck by how many articles jumped out at me even though they don’t directly relate to what I do on a day-to-day basis. Articles in this issue I definitely plan to read include: 


World Atmospheric COx, Its 14C Specific Activity, Non-fossil Component, Anthropogenic Fossil Component, and Emissions (1750-2018) by Kenneth Skrable and colleagues;


Compensatory Considerations for Radiological Emergency Response and Public Protective Actions during the COVID-19 Pandemic by Angela E. Leek and colleagues; and 


Estimation of the Thyroid Equivalent Doses to Residents in Areas Affected by the 2011 Fukushima Nuclear Disaster Due to Inhalation of 131I Based on Their Behavioral Data and the Latest Atmospheric Transport and Dispersion Model Simulation by Eunjoo Kim and colleagues. 


Be sure to check out these and the rest of the articles in the February issue. It’s an interesting lineup!
