Measuring gamma radiation

The art of measuring gamma-radiation..

Science evolved since Marie Curie coined the term "radioactivity". The very in-efficient electrometers from the time of Marie Curie have been replaced by efficient scintillation crystals that can be operated from drones and are even used in space exploration. 

This section explains the background of measuring gamma radiation, especially focussing on natural radionuclides, and describes best practices for field measurements.
