Abstract

The activities of (226)Ra, (232)Th and (40)K and natural radiation levels have been measured at granite regions of Karnataka State, India using HPGe detector and scintillometer. In granite region (232)Th activity is high compared to (226)Ra. The data shows that the activities of (226)Ra, (232)Th and (40)K and ambient gamma-radiation level were found to be high in comparison to global and Indian average(1).
