    Abstract: Samples of flowered grasses, herbs and jungles were collected from scrap yard (B) at Al-Tuwaitha Nuclear Site and analyzed in the laboratory using gamma-ray spectroscopy system. The activity concentrations for radionuclides grown on the studied area were found to be ranged from 1.05 to 5.45 Bq/kg (average 2.86 Bq/kg) for 226Ra, below detection limi... Show More
