DIAZ RIZO, Oscar et al. Assessment of environmental pollution in Havana city using nuclear and related techniques. Nucleus [online]. 2019, n.66, pp.58-65.  Epub Oct 03, 2019. ISSN 0864-084X.

Various nuclear and related analytical techniques applied to study different environmental problems in Havana city are presented. The environmental analysis by means of Neutron and Gamma Activation analyses, X-ray Fluorescence Atomic Abortion and Induced Coupled Plasma spectroscopies and Low Background , Gamma Spectrometry, have allowed to obtain important information about the behavior of heavy metals, antibiotics and radionuclides in sediments, urban and agricultural soils, waters, beach sands, urban dusts and agricultural products farmed in the Havana city.

Keywords : environment; social impact; Cuba; neutron activation analysis; x-ray fluorescence analysis; gamma spectroscopy; urban areas; environmental protection.
