Acronym Finder

Like all technical folks it seems we tend to develop our own language, especially when we are talking to ourselves. Acronyms are so common that even within the group we sometimes confuse each other. Some time back I found it convenient to start keeping a list for my own use and thought others may find it useful.

Additions, suggestions, and corrections are all appreciated and will be posted for the benefit of all. This is intended to be nuclear, health physics, radiation science, or radiation regulation oriented as opposed to a comprehensive list. For a comprehensive list you may find the website useful.
