Conversion coefficients from air kerma free-in-air to effective dose and dose in organs have been calculated for hermaphrodite 1, 5, 10, 15 year old children and adult anthropomorphic mathematical models. The 15 year old child phantom is also used as the adult female phantom. The irradiation geometry considered was the phantom standing on an almost infinite plane source, which is the geometry normally used for detector's calibration for environmental in situ measurements. The ADAM computer code has been modified to use the phantoms described by Cristy for the children phantoms, the adult male phantom is described in the ICRP Report 23. Thirty-six incident energies ranging from 10 keV to 10 MeV were selected for the incident radiation.
