The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) is described as an independent intergovernmental, science and technology-based organization in the United Nations family that serves as the global focal point for nuclear cooperation. One of the many helpful online resources provided by the organization is the IAEA Safety Glossary. Visitors have access to nuclear safety and transportation related terms which they can browse alphabetically or by a complete index. Examples of the hundreds of items include ageing degradation, collective dose, emergency exposure, lifetime risk, nuclear fuel cycle, and waste package. Each of these include brief definitions and reference information, when applicable.
