About the book
The book "Gamma Radiation Techniques – Environmental and Industrial Aspects" will be highlighting the practical applications of radiation techniques. This book will cover a vast area of radiation detection and measurement, radiation monitoring, radiological health effects, radiations protection techniques, and safety standards for radiation protection. It is vital to stay updated about contamination levels, for health and environmental purposes. Radiation effects are not only important for humans but also for other living organisms on the Earth.
Radiation monitoring deals with the sampling and measurement of different products found in different radiation pathways from the environment ending with consumption in humans. Gamma-spectroscopy is the main tool for measurement of these radiations.
The aim of this book is to investigate the radionuclide concentrations in the most consumable food products, air, water and soil. Particularly, it is essential to investigate the radiations level in the surroundings of a nuclear facility.
