Abstract
Results obtained with a simple photomultiplier and filter detector of X-irradiated air indicate that conventional optical instruments should be able to extract a fluorescence band from the weak night background when the ground dose rate is greater than one rad per hour. Interference from the fluorescence of minerals or ground cover is considered to be negligible.
