Abstract

A statistical prediction of terrestrial gamma radiation dose rate has been performed, covering the Kota Tinggi district of Peninsular Malaysia. The prediction has been based on geological features and soil types. The purpose of this study is to provide a methodology to statistically predict the gamma radiation dose rate with minimum surveying in an area. Results of statistical predictions using the hypothesis test were compared with the actual dose rate obtained by measurements.
