Measurement of Gross Alpha Contamination in Soil Sample by Using Solid State Nuclear Track Detector (SSNTD) Technique

M. S. A. Khan

Abstract: The measurements of gross alpha contamination(or radiation) in soil samples collected from various locations in the environment of shahjahanpur District was carried out by using LR-115 type II solid state nuclear track plastic detector. Observed result shows that the overall average value of gross alpha contamination was found varies from 20.10Bq/m3 to 36.90Bq/m3 with an average value of 29.06Bq/m3and standard deviation is 8.53 Bq/m3.The value of gross alpha contamination was found maximum (34.32Bq/cm3) at location P and minimum (21Bq/m3) at location R. The present study indicates that the nature of soil in the study area has a very low level radiation. Measured values of gross alpha contamination in soil samples collected from different locations in the study area were found below the world action level (137Bq/m3). Thus the study area is safe from radiation protection and as far as the health hazard effect point of view.
