Terrestrial radioactivity is caused by the radioactive elements, located in various amounts in soil and rocks. The concentration of radioactive elements varies with the geographical and geological structure of the region and with the mineralogical composition of soil and rock. In this study, 40K activity concentrations in gravel samples, collected from Konyaaltı Beach, were measured. The measurement was performed using gamma ray spectrometery at gamma spectrometry laboratory of Süleyman Demirel University.
