 en Monitoring of external background radiation level in Asa Dam Industrial area of Ilorin, Kwara State, Nigeria
NWANKWO, L I; AKOSHILE, C O

Abstract

An external background ionizing radiation study has been carried out within the Asa Dam Industrial Layout of Ilorin in Kwara State. The study was carried out in 5 stations within the industrial area using two Digilert Nuclear Radiation Monitors. The study has revealed that the external background ionizing radiation is averagely 0.0134 mR/hr with a deviation of about 22% which is relatively higher than the standard background radiation of 0.011 mR/hr. This result suggests the possibility of the presence of radionuclide sources in the environment. @JASEM
