• Assessment of natural radiactivity from building materials in Spain 

      Pérez Martínez, Manuel; Dueñas-Buey, Mª Concepción; Pérez Martínez, Manuel; Pérez Martínez, Manuel; Gordo Puertas, Elisa; [et al.] (2017-06-12)
      The industrial construction sector is very important in Spain. Building materials used in this industry are sources of radiation from natural radionuclides they contain. The aim of this work is to measure the natural ...
    • Deposition patterns of atmospheric 7Be, 210Pb, 40K in cost of west Mediterranean sea, Málaga (Spain) 

      Dueñas-Buey, Mª Concepción; Gordo Puertas, Elisa; Cañete Hidalgo, Sergio; Liger-Pérez, Esperanza; Cabello, María; [et al.] (2016-11-14)
      The deposition of radionuclides on the ground is an essential process to understand atmospheric transportation, sedimentation and geological process, being the major removal pathway for airborne particulates. To predict ...
    • Events affecting levels of gross alpha and gross beta activities and heavy metals composition of airborne particulate samples 

      Liger-Pérez, Esperanza; Dueñas-Buey, Mª Concepción; Gordo Puertas, Elisa; Cañete Hidalgo, Sergio; Cabello, María; [et al.] (2016-11-14)
      Particulate matter (PM) pollution is a serious environmental issue mainly due to the presence of toxic substances and trace metals in the atmosphere. The association of PM with adverse health effects has been recognized ...
    • Influence of meteorological parameters on gamma radionuclides and major-ions of bulk deposition in Málaga (South of Spain) 

      Dueñas-Buey, Mª Concepción; Fernández Jiménez, Mª del Carmen; Pérez Martínez, Manuel; Gordo Puertas, Elisa; Liger-Pérez, Esperanza; [et al.] (2014-06-10)
      Gamma radionuclides and major-ion concentrations in bulk deposition samples were monthly measured in bulk deposition over a seven year period (January 2005- December 2013). Bulk deposition was dominated by Ca2+,Cl-, SO42- ...
    • Long - term atmospheric depositional fluxes of radionuclides at Málaga (Coastal Mediterranean Station) 

      Pérez Martínez, Manuel; Dueñas-Buey, Mª Concepción; Fernández Jiménez, Mª del Carmen; Gordo Puertas, Elisa; Cañete, Sergio; [et al.] (2015-06-16)
      7Be and 210Pb are radionuclides which have been measured routinely in many places in order to study the description of environmental processes such as aerosol transit and residence times in the troposphere, aerosol ...

      Pérez Martínez, Manuel; Dueñas-Buey, Mª Concepción; Gordo Puertas, Elisa; Fernández JIménez, M. C Carmen; Cañete, Sergio; [et al.] (2015-06-15)
      The industrial construction sector is very important in Spain. Building materials used in this industry are sources of radiation from natural radionuclides they contain. The European Commission published some recommendations ...
    • Physical and chemical characterization of building materials 

      Pérez Martínez, Manuel; Dueñas-Buey, Mª Concepción; Gordo Puertas, Elisa; León-Reina, Laura; Liger-Pérez, Esperanza; [et al.] (2017-06-12)
      The products used in the construction of buildings and infrastructures, are made from raw material extracted directly from nature, and after suitable transformation processes are placed on site. Approximately 2.5 tons ...
