  • Compton-to-peak analysis is a method for selecting coefficients for converting count rates measured with in situ gamma ray spectrometry to radioactivity concentrations of $^{134}$Cs and $^{137}$Cs in the environment. Compton-to-peak analysis is based on the count rate ratio between the spectral regions containing scattered gamma rays to the primary $^{134}$Cs and $^{137}$Cs photopeaks (known as the Compton-to-peak ratio - RCP). RCP changes with the vertical distribution of $^{134}$Cs and $^{137… CONTINUE READING
