Index / Uranium (Nuclear Minerals) / Geospatial Information

Joseph S. Duval, et al., (U.S. Geological Survey) report that naturally occurring radioactive isotopes can be found in most rocks and soils. The most abundant of these are potassium (K40), uranium (U238), and thorium (Th232). The radioactive decay of these elements results in the emission of gamma-rays of sufficient intensity that they can be measured using instruments in aircraft flying close to the ground. The measurement technique is known as airborne gamma-ray spectrometry (AGRS) and quantitative methods were developed 30 years ago that allow data to be expressed in terms of element concen... More →
