Abstract : This volume presents the methodology for and results of estimating values for the average SAR and the SAR distribution in man exposed to 1-mW/sq cm 450-MHz radiofrequency radiation for various polarizations and body positions. The results were obtained by calorimetry and thermography from 1/5 scaled models of man and were analyzed by an interactive computer system. The mean SAR as averaged over the body remained relatively constant at 0.050 W/kg, with a standard deviation of + or - .007 W/kg for all exposure polarization conditions and body postures. Peak SAR values were as high as 0.650 W/kg, occurring typically in the wrist.
