    Abstract: The presence of radioactivity, originating from both natural and human-induced sources, is widespread in varying degrees throughout the Earth's crust. Soil, as a fundamental component of the Earth's crust, serves as an ongoing source of exposure to humans. The level of radioactivity in soil is influenced by factors such as soil composition and land... Show More

    Abstract: Gamma-ray spectrometry (GRS) is an exploration technology that distinguishes itself from other non-contact sensing technologies because it provides information from 30 to 50 cm below the ground. This technology has evolved through three significant turning points in mapping output. The first turning point, in the 1960s-1970s, was the transition fro... Show More
