Determination of natural radioactivity concentrations in soil: a comparative study of Windows and Full Spectrum Analysis

by Maphoto, Katse Piet

Abstract (Summary)
In this study, two methods of analysing activity concentrations of natural radionuclides (U, Th and K) in soil are critically compared. These are the Window Analysis (WA) and Full Spectrum Analysis (FSA). In the usual WA method, the activity concentrations are determined from the net counts of the windows set around individual &gamma
