Determination of Natural Radioactivity Concentrations in Surface Soils in the Yeşilırmak River in Amasya, Turkey

Title variants
Languages of publication
In this study, natural radioactivity concentration in the surface soils along the Yeşilırmak river in Amasya have been investigated. The activity concentrations of radionuclides of the ²²⁶Ra and ²³²Th decay chains and of the ⁴⁰K were determined by means of gamma-ray spectrometry measurements made using a 3 × 3'' NaI(Tl) detector system. Concerning radiological risk, the absorbed gamma dose in air from those soils and the outdoor annual effective dose equivalent were calculated.
