Abstract

Radioactive is a global issue because it always exists in our environment in this world, including Sabah. This research is carrying out to monitoring the radioactive level for certain places in West Coast Sabah. These places are Kota Kinabalu, Tuaran, Kota Belud, Papar, Ranau, Kelombong, Kinabalu Park and Kundasang. This set of data on the radioactive background is useful to compare to the global safety level. It can let us ensure that the radioactive levels in these places are below the safety level. From this research, there are two factors influence the radioactive level, which are radiation from cosmic rays and radiation from rocks and soils. These two factors can affect the different radioactive level in the morning and in the afternoon. Moreover, radioactive level for different altitude is also affected by these two factors.
