From earlier surveys conducted by soviet researchers, the Kabul area was identified as a region of high natural radioactivity. In addition, depleted uranium ammunition was used by the Soviet armed forces. Fragmentary maps (often only given in relative units) indicate regions of anomalously elevated gamma radiation dose rates. In recent years, residential houses have been built in some of these places. However, no detailed information of uranium and thorium distributions in the upper soil and… Expand
