Lunar radiation dose due to cosmic rays and their secondary particles
Paper in proceedings, 2010

To be able to safely perform human activities on the lunar surface, it is very important to assess the radiation environment, including the dose from galactic cosmic Rays (GCRs) and large Solar Energetic Particles (SEPs). Especially, large SPEs are highly hazardous to lunar habitants. In this paper, several SPEs have been evaluated in order to estimate the effective dose equivalent on the lunar surface. Several events give more than 1 Sv without any shield.
