Transfer Factor from Soil-to- Mixed Grass for 40K, 238U,232Th, 137Cs

2019 JCBPSC  
The purpose of this work was to study the transfer factor (TF) from soil to grass in Al-Bayda area in North East of Libya to be added to the data base for this part of the world, and to be informed about health safety of the radiation hazard due consumption of animal products. Five sites were measured for their radioactivity concentration for the followings: the activity concentrations of samples in soil and grass (Bq/kg) of 238 U, 232 Th, 40 K and 137 Cs. We found that the average
