The weighting factor for the skin is 1% (ICRP 60 or 103). Actually,
one would be estimating then the "equivalent dose".

I am not familiar with conversion factors for deriving skin dose
expressed as dose equivalent.
Is there a decent on-line reference somewhere, please ? (PS. I’m not
an HP, but judging by the number of responses to my question, that
doesn’t seem to make much difference…)
Also, is it normal practice to leave people guessing about what sort
of interpretation is the correct one, rather than simply spelling out
what it is that’s being published ?
