Abstract:

A gamma-gamma through-transmission moisture-density measurement technique is postulated for marine sediment studies. The technique uses two gamma sources of different energies with a fixed distance between the sources and the detector. By obtaining a grab sample for system calibration, the measurement in the postulated system is due only to the random emission of the radiation sources. The technique should provide moisture measurement accuracies of or - 1.1 at 15 and or - 16 at 500 contained moisture. Author
