Abstract

The results of NPL's twenty-fourth Environmental Radioactivity Proficiency Test Exercise are reported. Six different sample types were offered: an aqueous mixture of one alpha emitter and three beta emitters (designated `AB'), an aqueous mixture of three alpha emitters (`A1'), an aqueous mixture of three beta emitters (`B1'), an aqueous mixture of four gamma emitters (`GH'), a second aqueous mixture of four gamma emitters (`GL') and a sample of contaminated concrete (`C2'). In total, 594 results were submitted; 584 were analysed and, of these, 74% were found to be `In Agreement' with the NPL Assigned Values.
