31. Measurement of Ionizing Radiation Level in an High Altitude Town of Imesi-Ile, Osun State, Southwestern, Nigeria by Bamidele L. - Volume28, No. 1, (November, 2014), pp 209 – 212
Sale price: $5.00


The present work attempts to measure background ionizing radiation in an high altitude town of Imesi-Ile, Osun State, Southwestern, Nigeria. The measurements were carried out in 20 locations within the town using portable Digilert 50 Nuclear Radiation monitor. The absorbeddose rates obtained ranges 

from 26.6 to 48.6nGyh-1 with a mean value 37.19nGyh

-1. The estimated annual effective dose is 0.46mSv. This value is less thanannual dose unit of 1mSv 

recommended by UNSCEAR for normal environment.
