Estimation of Annual Effective Dose due to Radon And Thoron Concentrations in Mud Dwellings of Mrima Hill, Kenya
(Oxford University Press, 2015)
This study presents radon and thoron concentration measurements and the corresponding effective dose rates in mud dwellings located in the high background radiation area of Mrima Hill, Kenya. Discriminative technique was ...
Natural and artificial radioactivity levels in sediments along the Kenyan coast
Exposures to various components of the natural background radiation in Kenya were estimated using measured activity concentrations of natural radionuclides and conversion factors. Contributions to the total effective dose ...
An investigation of the repeatability of calibration factors in gamma-ray spectrometry of geological materials
A NaI(Tl)-based gamma spectrometer for the analysis of geological materials was calibrated using the IAEA reference materials RGU-1, RGTH-1 and RGK-1. To simulate typical geological samples, two additional standards were ...
