Radiometric Survey in Western Afghanistan: A Website for Distribution of Data
Entry ID: USGS_OFR_2007_1042

Abstract: Radiometric (uranium content, thorium content, potassium content, and gamma-ray
intensity) and related data were digitized from radiometric and survey route
location maps of western Afghanistan published in 1976. The uranium content
data were digitized along contour lines from 33 maps in a series entitled "Map
of Uranium (Radium) Contents of Afghanistan (Western Area)," compiled by V. N.

Quality The digital data are Geosoft databases and grids, which were created from the
original digitized radiometric data identified in this report. Data accuracies
thus coincided with the original survey/data processing accuracies. The final
radiometric grid interval of 400 m was chosen as representative for all grids.
