Abstract
The availability of commercial gamma spectrometers has greatly simplified the problem of identification of radionuclides. Experience with this equipment for such identification in rain, cistern, and surface waters is described. Data are presented showing differences obtained as a function of water fraction, age of samples, etc. Information on the applicability of this technique to quantitative determinations of specific radionuclides is also included.
