Ra ranged between 193–484 Bq/kg. In addition, 238 U, 232 Th and 40 K were analysed, the results showed a range between 383–812 Bq/kg, 370–819 Bq/kg and 300–9800 Bq/kg for each of the radionuclides, respectively. The elevated 238 U, 232 Th and 40 K in the region, could be attributed to the presence of cement factories along the banks of the estuary. They reported that cement has high background values of the three nuclides which are associated with limestone, shale, clay, gypsum and other cement raw materials. They reported that the concentration of 238 U
