In cleanup operations and environmental surveillance efforts, a level of concern usually specifies a concentration limit for a particular radionuclide above which some action may be warranted. It is critical that the analytical method selected for measurements has a detection limit well below the action level. This is to guarantee that the technique used… CONTINUE READING
