Studies on the radiation level and the radionuclide distribution of some naturally occurring radioactive materials (NORM) in the soils of the coastal areas of Southern Nigeria were undertaken. The purpose of this study is to provide baseline data for the effective monitoring of unforeseeable radioactive fallout in these areas where a lot of oil exploration activities are going on. The radioactivity concentrations of these naturally occurring radionuclides (specifically (40)K, (238)U and (232)Th… CONTINUE READING
