EJERE, AII; ELOHOR, OR & OSAGIE, UO

Abstract

Investigation of ambient radiation level of Iuleha clan in Owan – West Local Government Area, Edo State has been carried out using the radiation meter Digilert 50, Nuclear Radiation Monitor. The background natural radiation level Count per hour (Cph) of eighteen sites of the total expanse of the clan were measured. The Cph values ranged from 848μSv/hr (Aoma market) to 1308.00μSv/hr (Okagboro). It was discovered that sites with high Cph were close to granite deposit or had granite subsurface foundation.
