  • Evaluation and analysis of 226Ra, 232Th and 40K and radon exhalation rate
           in the soil samples for health risk assessment
    • Authors: Sandeep Kansal, Rohit Mehra
      Pages: 1 - 13
      Abstract: The measurements of radium, thorium and potassium using gamma spectrometry and radon exhalation rates using solid-state nuclear track detectors (LR-115, Type-II plastic) are carried out in the soil samples collected from some parts of western districts of Haryana, India. The activity concentrations of <SUP align="right">226</SUP>Ra, <SUP align="right">232</SUP>Th and <SUP align="right">40</SUP>K range from 13.93 to 142 Bq kg<SUP align="right">−1</SUP>, 35.95 to 91.78 Bq kg<SUP align="right">−1</SUP> and 299.57 to 1056.77 Bq kg<SUP align="right">−1</SUP>, respectively. The values of total absorbed dose and annual effective dose (indoors and outdoors) were found to vary from 42.12 to 140.05 nGy h<SUP align="right">−1</SUP>, 0.22 to 0.69 mSv y<SUP align="right">−1</SUP> and 0.05 to 0.17 mSv y<SUP align="right">−1</SUP> respectively. The radium equivalent activity (Ra<SUB align="right">eq) in all the soil samples varies from 92.51 to 287.08 Bq kg<SUP align="right">−1</SUP> with an average of 184.15 Bq kg<SUP align="right">−1</SUP>. The radium values are lower than the recommended safe limit of 370 Bq kg<SUP align="right">−1</SUP> hence there is no radiological risk to the residents of the studied area.

  • Natural radioactivity and hazardous index of major South Indian river
    • Authors: S. Murugesan, S. Mullainathan, V. Ramasamy
      Pages: 14 - 33
      Abstract: The activity concentrations of <SUP align="right">238</SUP>U, <SUP align="right">232</SUP>Th and <SUP align="right">40</SUP>K have been determined by gamma ray spectrometry with an NaI(Tl) detector in sediments of Palar River, Tamil Nadu, India. The absorbed dose rate, radium equivalent concentration, external (H<SUB align="right">ex) and internal (H<SUB align="right">in) hazardous indices are calculated from criteria formula and compared with the international recommended limits. The Radioactive Heat Production (RHP) rate and Excess Lifetime Cancer Risk (ELCR) are also calculated. The observed dose rate from ERDM (Environmental Radiation Dosimeter) at 1 m above the ground level at each site of the river is measured and correlated with calculated absorbed dose rate. The distribution of quartz, feldspar, magnetic susceptibility and weight of the magnetic minerals is correlated with radioactivity results. From the observations, the weight of the magnetic minerals is an index to identify the sediments of low or high radiological risk.

  • Enhancement of natural radioactivity in farm surface soils from Abyan
           Delta in Yemen
    • Pages: 34 - 47
      Abstract: Radium, thorium and potassium analyses have been made in farm soil samples collected from Abyan Delta in Yemen using gamma ray spectrometry. Abyan Delta is an agricultural area that produces many agricultural crops in Yemen. The results show that <SUP align="right">226</SUP>Ra, <SUP align="right">232</SUP>Th and <SUP align="right">40</SUP>K radionuclides were present in average concentrations of 34.9 ± 2.9, 84.5 ± 7.8, 1232.7 ± 40 Bq kg<SUP align="right">−1</SUP> for farm surface soil irrigation by flood water. The corresponding values for farm surface soil irrigation by ground water were 30.24 ± 2.7, 63.64 ± 5.7, 1096 ± 36 Bq kg<SUP align="right">−1</SUP>, respectively. The radium equivalent activity (Ra<SUB align="right">eq), the external hazard index (H<SUB align="right">ex), the internal hazard index (H<SUB align="right">in), and absorbed dose in air were calculated. The data were discussed and compared with those given in the literature. Chemical analysis for elemental oxides was also carried out along with the measurement of pH of soil samples.

  • Importance of radon studies in rural areas and correlation of indoor radon
           level with radon inventory
    • Authors: Kailas Sekhar Banerjee, Debashish Sengupta
      Pages: 48 - 60
      Abstract: The measurement of indoor radon in villages is very important as 50% of the world populations live in villages, and rural houses normally have very low air exchange rates. This study has estimated the possible indoor radon level from five types of rocks, which are readily available to build houses in Eastern Singhbhum district of India. In the process to calculate this radon inventory, radium content and radon flux rate were measured in the selected rocks. Then calculated radon emanation factor was compared with the possible indoor radon concentration computed from the available air ventilation rate of typical Indian houses. It was found that granite generated low radon level and it can be a good alternative choice as building material instead of other regionally used rocks. This study also suggests that important geological parameters, which develop and increase porosity, can effectively increase radon inventory.

  • Radioactivity measurement of 222Rn, 226Ra and 238U in pharmaceuticals and
           evaluation of cancer risk
    • Authors: Kailas Sekhar Banerjee, Debashish Sengupta
      Pages: 61 - 73
      Abstract: The concentrations of <SUP align="right">222</SUP>Rn, <SUP align="right">226</SUP>Ra, and <SUP align="right">238</SUP>U were measured in 16 pharmaceuticals derived from medicinal plants using a solid-state nuclear track detector (CR-39). The radon levels in the airspace above the samples ranged between 0.04 and 20 Bq/m³ with an average value of 5.82 Bq/m³, while the uranium concentration ranged from 0.04 to 25.62 mppm with an average value of 7.34 mppm. The activity concentrations for radon, radium, and uranium were 0.53-344.4 mBq/kg, 0.05-30.63 mBq/kg, and 0.53-344.4 μBq/kg, respectively. The maximum annual average internal effective dose from radon, radium, and uranium due to a twice-daily ingestion of 500-mg tablet for one of the investigated medicines was 11.18 nSv/y. This value is much smaller than the UNSCEAR recommended safety limit for public, which is 290,000 nSv/y for the ingestion exposure caused by natural sources. Therefore, the intake of the studied pharmaceuticals does not lead to substantial changes in the internal effective dose.

  • A thorough investigation of the uranium concentration in phosphate
           mines: a case study of Minjingu phosphate mine, Arusha, United
           Republic of Tanzania
    • Authors: Lazaro H. Meza, Mohsen A. Mandour, Mahmoud H. Shalaby, Mohamed H. Hassan, Nader A. Mohamed
      Pages: 74 - 92
      Abstract: Using high resolution gamma ray spectrometry, the terrestrial radionuclides from all phosphate rock samples were measured and results are presented. From the measured gamma ray spectra, activity concentrations were determined for <SUP align="right">226</SUP>Ra/<SUP align="right">238</SUP>U (range from 122.5±6.9 to 8060±806 Bq kg<SUP align="right">−1</SUP>), <SUP align="right">232</SUP>Th (range from 13.2±0.8 to 1201.3±77.3 Bq kg<SUP align="right">−1</SUP>), <SUP align="right">40</SUP>K (range from 12.9±1.3 to 1827.6±93.9 Bq kg<SUP align="right">−1</SUP>) and <SUP align="right">137</SUP>Cs (range from 0.5±0.017 to 70.58±1.25 Bq kg<SUP align="right">−1</SUP>) with mean of 1832.32±00, 447.62±00, 399.46±00 and 22.98±0.43 Bq kg<SUP align="right">−1</SUP> respectively. Radium equivalent activity ranges from 219.27±00 to 9127.07±00 Bq kg<SUP align="right">−1</SUP> with mean of 2433.56±00 Bq kg<SUP align="right">−1</SUP>. The total absorbed dose estimated at 1 metre above the ground varies from 102.1 to 3967.8 nGyh<SUP align="right">−1</SUP> with an average of 1055.9 nGy h<SUP align="right">−1</SUP>. Investigation of uranium recorded a peak of 650±65ppm, this suggests the existing U concentration is over three times greater than economically viable and production of a cleaner fertiliser is favourable.
