Hello Radsafers. I am seeking information regarding the above subject. I
am aware of the documentation in the December 2006 draft MARSAME document
for U-nat and Th-nat. However, if anyone out there has worked up
calculations for their site-specific conditions that they would be willing
to share I would very interested in obtaining a copy of the documentation.
The particular site at which I am involved has a very low U-nat cleanup goal
of 17 pCi/g. That is the primary rationale for use of the FIDLER vs the
more commonly used 2x2 NaI detectors. The Ra-226 cleanup goal is the
'standard' 5 pCi/g criterion.
Thanks in advance for any insight you can provide.
