Radioactivity Levels and Health Risks of in and Around The Adana Region, Turkey
Adana ve Çevresinde Radyoaktivite Seviyesi ve Sağlık Riski

Muhammet KARATAŞLI [1]


In order to determine the gamma radiation dose levels in the Adana Province and its vicinity, measurements were made at a height of approximately 1 m from the soil surface at 133 different points. The measurements were measured using a portable gamma scintillation detector that was sensitive to detection of radiation emitted by low-activity radionuclides descending with fallout along with natural gamma radiation measurements. In this study, the arithmetic average of gamma dose level measurements in Adana province and its surroundings was found to be 71.2 (nGy /h). This value corresponds to the mean effective dose equivalent of 87.3 μSv /y. The obtained results were compared to studies conducted in different regions of Turkey and the world average.

Adana İli ve çevresinde havadaki gama radyasyon doz seviyelerini belirlemek için 133 farklı noktada toprak yüzeyinden yaklaşık 1 m yükseklikte ölçümler yapıldı. Ölçümler, doğal gama radyasyonu ölçümleri ile birlikte serpinti ile birlikte inen düşük aktiviteli radyonüklidlerden yayılan radyasyonun tespitine duyarlı olan portatif bir gama sintilasyon detektörü kullanılarak ölçüldü. Bu çalışmada, Adana ili ve  çevresinde bulunan gamma doz seviye ölçümlerinin aritmetik ortalaması 71.2 (nGy /h) olarak bulundu. Bu değer  yıllık etkin doz eşdeğeri 87.3 μSv/y değerinde etkin doz ortalamasına karşılık gelmektedir. Elde edilen sonuçlar, Türkiye'nin farklı bölgelerinde yapılan çalışmalar ve dünya ortalamasıyla karşılaştırılmıştır.
