English term or phrase: INFINITE HORIZONTAL SLAB SOURCE
GEOPHYSICAL SURVEY

The fully corrected count rate data is used to estimate the concentrations in the ground of each of the three radioelements, potassium, uranium and thorium. The procedure determines the concentrations which would give the observed count rates, if uniformly distributed in an INFINITE HORIZONTAL SLAB SOURCE.
