Determination of natural radioactivity and hazard in soil ...

01/07/2014  To assess the gamma radiation hazards to human associated with the use of the soil from the mining sites in construction of houses (filling and local brick making), radium equivalent activity was calculated. This gives a single index which describes the gamma output from different mixture of 238 U, 232 Th and 40 K in the samples.
