Abstract

A systematic study of the ground water and soil samples collected from different locations around Mysore city (12°N and 76°E) has been carried out. 226Ra activity concentration in water samples varies from 0.28 to 189 mBq l−1 with a geometric mean (GM) of 4.75 mBq l−1 and 222Rn concentration in ground water varies from 4.25 to 435 Bq l−1 with a GM of 25.9 Bq l−1. The GM of inhalation and ingestion doses due to 222Rn in water is 65.2 and 5.43, µSv y−1, respectively. The measured GM gamma dose rate in air is 85.4 nGy h–1 and absorbed dose rate estimated from the measured activity of radionuclides is 92.6 nGy h–1.
