The Quantitative Techniques of Scintillation Spectrometry as Applied to the Calibration of Standard Sources

Description: Report presenting "the determination of absolute gamma emission rates for monoenergetic gamma emitters using a single-channel scintillation spectrometer. Examples are given for Cr⁵¹, Cs¹³⁷, Nb⁹⁵, and Zn⁶⁵. Sources of error are discussed and steps being taken to improve the accuracy of the method are described" (p. 1).

Aeroradioactivity Survey and Areal Geology of Parts of East-Central New York and West-Central New England (ARMS-I)

Description: Report concerning "[a]n airborne gamma-radiation survey of Connecticut, Rhode Island, and parts of New York, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, and Vermont" (p. 5) made between 1958 and 1960 that indicated that a broad range of radioactivity exists in those areas depending on the type of bedrock. Correlations are drawn between this radioactivity and the geology of the region.

A Scintillation Spectrometer for Routine Use

Description: From abstract: An automatic gamma-ray spectrometer for routine assays in radiochemical investigations has been constructed. Circuits are described for the automatic control of the pulse analyzer bias and automatic recording of the counting data. Typical gamma-ray spectra are shown as an indication of the perfomance obtained.
