Overview of ELF-EMF exposure
These pages will allow you to discover field intensities in which we are exposed at various degrees
According to the various sources of EMF, values are provided for information purposes only. On-site measurement are useful to precisely define exposure.
Moreover, let's keep in mind that our exposure is variable over the course of a day:
Example of an MF series recorded in a 24-h period
