Abstract


Background: Purpose of current study was to investigate the gross α & gross β radioactivity level of Xiaoqing River in Jinan from 2008 to 2015.

Methods: According to National Standards of P.R., China.

Results: The gross α radioactivity concentration ranges from 0.02 to 0.17) Bq/L with an average concentration value of 0.05Bq/L; the gross β radioactivity concentration ranges from 0.09 to 0.23) Bq/L with an average concentration value of 0.15Bq/L.

Conclusions: The gross α & gross β radioactivity level of Xiaoqing River were in the normal background range during the years from 2008 to 2015.


Keywords
