Abstract

Reference marine biological samples are necessary to test the performance of the analytical methods employed in surveying and monitoring radioactive materials in the sea.

The measurement by non-destructive low-level gamma-ray spectrometry in an underground laboratory of artificial and natural radionuclide activity concentrations in ocean shellfish material is reported. The material analyzed, is a composite material made of Irish Sea and White Sea Mussel and Japan Sea oyster, prepared by the National Institute of Standards and Technology. .
