Low level radioactivity measurements in an ocean shellfish matrix
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 of artificial and natural radionuclide activity concentrations in ocean shellfish material by nondestructive ultra low-level y-ray spectrometry in an underground laboratory is reported. The material analyzed, a composite material made of Irish Sea and White Sea mussel and Japan Sea oyster,, was prepared by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST).
