Aerial and Vehicular Gamma Survey

Professor David Sanderson has developed a unique capability for conducting airborne gamma spectrometry (AGS) and vehicular radiometric surveys. Research into survey techniques and calibration procedures including Monte Carlo simulation has been conducted for more than twenty years. More than twenty environmental surveys have been completed in the UK and overseas, including studies of the majority of UK nuclear sites. SUERC has been at the forefront of establishing European co-operation and co-ordinating method development at international level. Radiometric surveys and particularly AGS are increasingly recognised as being of crucial significance to nuclear emergency response.

Our radiometric survey capability includes:

  • Aerial and vehicular radiometric surveying equipment and expertise.
  •  Gamma-ray spectrometer calibration pads.
