• NOTE 1 In its broadest sense this can include the flux of particles, but in the context of space energetic particle radiation effects, it usually refers to the energy absorbed locally per unit mass as a result of radiation exposure.
  • NOTE 2 If 'dose' is used unqualified, it refers to both ionising and non-ionising dose. Non-ionising dose can be quantified either through energy deposition via displacement damage or damage-equivalent fluence (see Clause 8).
