The track detector conference was held under the joint auspices of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe and the University of Bristol. This proceedings volume contains over 160 papers which cover the latest developments and applications of solid state nuclear track detectors in medicine, physics, chemistry, space research, geology and other fields.


Of interest to workers in physics, nuclear physics and technology, biophysics, nuclear medicine, health physics, radiation protection, geology, and in hospitals with nuclear equipment.
