The radioactivity levels were determined in 39 soil samples from six towns of Skardu using gamma-ray spectrometry. The samples were collected at an average altitude of 2293 m above sea level in Central Karakoram. The activity concentration data were analysed by principal component analysis for outlier detection and data structure elucidation and for(More)
Road traffic congestion is a global problem and large amount of money is being invested to cope with traffic congestion problems. These interventions focus on reducing traveler time on roads and highways in particular. Various approaches such as loop detection and automatic vehicle detection have been utilized for this purpose but all these happen to be(More)
The activity concentration of terrestrial (226Ra, 232Th, and 40K) and anthropogenic gamma-emitting radionuclide (137Cs) have been analyzed in 48 soil samples collected from Gilgit, a famous city for mountaineers and tourists in northern Pakistan, at an average altitude of 1,550 m, using gamma-ray spectrometry. The data analysis includes descriptive(More)
This paper deals with the determination of (226)Ra, (232)Th, (40)K and (137)Cs in 42 soil samples collected from eight towns of Hunza district, at an average altitude of 2267 m, using gamma-ray spectrometry. The activity concentration data were analysed for frequency distribution and other descriptive measures. Risk assessment was done by calculating the(More)
