Abstract

Radiometric data give information about the amounts of potassium, uranium and thorium that are present on the surface of the earth (Heiland 1963). This information is measured as a spectrum of the gamma radiation that is emitted as a result of decay in radioactive elements. Each element emits a unique amount of gamma radiation, and by counting the radiation at each energy level, a spectrum can be built up that can be related to the ground concentrations of potassium, uranium and thorium.
