Languages of publication
In this paper, the measurement of natural radioactivity in Sheep meat samples from different regions of Karbala governorate by using (Na(Tl)) detector. The results of measurements have shown that the specific activity and the determination of some other related parameters such as (Raeq , Hin, Iɣ, Iα, DƔ, Eff dos and AGDE). In fourteen four sheep meat samples by using NaI(Tl) detector. The results have shown that, the mean specific activity of (40K, 238U and 232Th) which were (6.813±1.82 Bq/kg, 3.865±1.033 Bq/kg and 1.02±1.03), respectively, were found to be less than the recommended values of specific activity given by (UNSCEAR, 2000).
