I would like to obtain shielding information showing the effect of different materials/protective clothing and beta radiation. We recently experienced radiological conditions where high-beta emitting isotopes were present in sufficient amounts to cause ion chamber instruments to indicate a factor of 10 or higher than the actual gamma field. The betas were from Pr-144 and Rh-106.
