Organization: ASTM
Publication Date: 1 November 2012
Status: active
Page Count: 7
scope:

This practice covers the quantification of radionuclides in environmental media (e.g., water, soil, vegetation, food) by means of simple preparation and counting with a highresolution gamma ray detector. Because the practice is designed for rapid analysis, extensive efforts to ensure homogeneity or ideal sample counting conditions are not taken.

The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. The values given in parentheses are provided for information purposes only.

This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
