Contamination mapping

Contamination of soil and sediments by heavy metals and organic compounds poses significant environmental and economic concerns, particularly in floodplains and waterbodies. Gamma-ray sensors have become an effective means of accurately mapping the distribution of soil and sediment contamination, offering dependable and comprehensive data on spatial variations which are used to manage and dispose of contaminated sites.
