In this study, gamma spectrometric efficiency measurement uncertainty of 137Cs in vegetation sample is investigated. Each uncertainty component is evaluated and quantified. For this purpose, n-type 70% efficiency HPGe detector was used. The combined standard uncertainty of 137Cs efficiency was found to be 2.43%.
