How can you use a gamma-ray spectrometer under a drone?

Drone borne gamma-ray measurements can be corrected for height.

The Medusa gamma-ray spectrometers have become the standard for drone-borne mapping soil and geology. For a successful application of these gamma-ray spectrometers, it is important that the sensor gives absolute values concentrations of the radionuclides in the soil.

Our most recent research paper describes how drone-borne gamma-ray can be corrected for the height of measurement. The article can be downloaded here.

The research work is part of a Phd project at Medusa Radiometrics and University Medical Centre Groningen and is subsidized by the European Regional Development Fund (EFRD 2014–2020).
