There are approximately 20 caves of limestone origin in Zonguldak (Turkey). In this study, the results of atmospheric radon measurements performed for two caves are presented. These caves, Gökgöl and Cehennemağzi, are open to tourism. Gökgöl Cave is the longer, at nearly 3,200 m in length. Cehenennemağzi is a pit-type cave with a total length of 85 m. The(More)
In this study, the results of atmospheric radon measurements that were performed for the Amasra underground coal mine in Zonguldak bituminous coal basin (Turkey) are presented. The radon measurements were performed for 40 days between November 2004 and December 2004 using passive nuclear etched track detectors. The radon concentrations vary from a minimum(More)
The Çatalağzı coal-fired power plant (CFPP) is the Turkish CFPP that uses the hard coals produced in Zonguldak, located in the West Black Sea region of the country. Gamma-ray spectrometry was used to determine (226)Ra, (232)Th and (40)K contents in pulverised coal, bottom ash and fly ash samples. The natural radionuclide concentrations in pulverised coal(More)
The Catalağzi Thermal Power Plant (CTPP) (41(0)30'48.4('')N and 0.31(0)53'41.5('')E) is located at nearly 13 km North-east of Zonguldak city, which is located at the West Black Sea coast in Turkey. The middling products with high ash content of bituminous coals are used in this plant. Seasonal radon concentration measurements have been carried out by using(More)
The distributions of twelve beta-thalassemic mutations in samples (n = 139 chromosomal samples) from four regions of Turkey were determined. The frequencies of these mutations did not reveal a notable region specific heterogeneity. In particular, the four mutations, IVS.1/nt.110(G/A), IVS.1/nt.6(T/C), IVS.1/nt.1(G/A) and nonsense codon.39(C/T), with(More)
