  1. Assessment of dose rate and collective effective dose equivalent due to terrestrial gamma radiation in the city of Lagos, Nigeria.

    Article - En anglais

    The average annual effective dose equivalent and the collective effective dose equivalent have been determined from measurements of the concentrations of 40K, 238U and 232Th in top soil in and around the city of Lagos using in situ gamma spectrometry.

    The average outdoor absorbed dose rate was (0.041 ± 0.012) muGyh-1 resulting in an annual average effective dose equivalent of 50 muSv. y-1.

    The collective effective dose equivalent to the population in the city is 2.84 x 102 man.

    Sv. y-1.
