Radioactivity concentration of Naturally Occurring Radioactive Materials (NORMs) in shore sediments (samples) collected along the coast of Accra were analyzed using a gamma spectrometry with a high purity germanium detector. The specific activity concentrations range from 8.60 Bqkg to 61.01 Bqkg with a mean of 29.78 Bqkg for K, 0.62 Bqkg to 148.80 Bqkg with a mean of 22.04 Bqkg for Ra and 0.17 Bqkg to 732.60 Bqkg with a mean of 108.60 Bqkg for Th. The K concentration compares well with the… CONTINUE READING
