Article
This paper presents the spatial variations in distribution of certain heavy metals in the Caroni River Basin, Republic of Trinidad and Tobago, which is the most industrialised nation of the Caribbean. Till now, no detail assessment has been carried out in this area to measure the accumulation indices and associated risks. This study can illustrate...
Article
Present study area, which is located in the Central Range Fault (CRF) in the island of Trinidad, can provide solution to that problem as this strike-slip fault system is reported to be active in present time (during Holocene, most current geological epoch) with a movement of geodetic rate of 12 ± 3 mm/yr. Most recent work, with improved GPS time se...

Authoured by K.S. Banerjee and D. Sengupta, Forthcoming article (2015) in 'International Journal of Low Level Radiation'.
Article
This paper is devoted to the comparative study of the radon flux vs. uranium content and radon flux vs. porosity for mineral samples from some typical Indian rocks (schists, quartzites, argillaceous quartzites, slates and granites) used as building materials, primarily around the Singhbhum Shear Zone, Jharkhand State.As the radon flux of any partic...

The determination of the natural radioactivity has been carried out, by means of gamma-ray spectrometry, in exposed rock samples collected from various geological formations across the Singhbhum Shear Zone of India. The spatial variation in the concentration of primordial radionuclides reflects, in general, the geochemical variance among the analyz...

Introduction: The morphology of impact craters on the planetary surfaces that provides the best evi-dences on trajectories of impactor asteroids is the dis-tribution of ejecta around craters [1]. Although, prop-er mapping of ejecta around planetary craters by re-mote sensing techniques provides useful information on the evolution of these structure...
Article
A study was taken up to quantify the source term arising due to radon exhalation from Uranium(U) tailings pile at Singbhum shear zone in Jharkhand state of India. In-situ experiments were conducted at 40 locations of the U tailings pile in three seasons namely summer, rainy and winter to measure the radon fluxes. The fluxes were also predicted by a...

Terrestrial gamma radiation is one of the important radiation exposures on the Earth’s surface that results primarily from the three primordial radionuclides, viz. U, Th and K. The elemental concentrations of these elements in the Earth’s crust could result in the anomalous variation of the terrestrial gamma radiation in the environment. The geolog...

The problem of ejecta mapping of weathering modified terrestrial craters is explored using gamma-ray mapping by handheld GM counter supported by U, Th and K data of various surface types for Lonar crater, India.
