The use of airborne gamma-ray measurements has a long-standing tradition in geophysical research. The airborne measurement of gamma radiation emitted by naturally occurring elements like potassium (40K), thorium (232Th) and uranium (238U) is a common method in exploration.
Airborne gamma-ray surveys (GRS) have been routinely applied for decades to map the earth’s surface. Recent advancements in computing power and detection technology have significantly improved and it is now possible for gamma-ray systems to be manufactured more compactly, rugged and light-weight. These next generation gamma ray spectrometers open boundless opportunities to use these systems […]
