Abstract

In line with technological developments and increasing demand in mobile communications, external electromagnetic radiation (EMR) sources and exposure levels are going up day by day. Therefore measuring and evaluating the exposed EMR levels have become more substantial for human health. It is especially important to determine the EMR levels in campuses where cellular systems used densely. Thus, in this study, EMR levels were measured in Samsun Ondokuz Mayıs University Kurupelit Campus between years 2013-2015 and evaluated. Approximately 400 measurements were performed using PMM 8053 and SRM 3006 at 23 different location in the Campus. The results show that the measured EMR levels (the max. is 2,68 V/m) are far below the limits which are determined by ICNIRP. Additional analyses demonstrate that 55% of total electromagnetic pollution is caused by UMTS2100, 32% is produced by GSM900, 7% by GSM1800 and 6% is aroused from the devices that use the remaining frequency bands.
