The gross alpha and beta radioactivity concentrations and radionuclide activity concentrations in the water of the Suleymanli thermae and the Ekinozu spa have been measured. In addition, the elemental analysis has been done in the water of The Suleymanli thermae and The Ekinozu spa by using XRF. Samples taken from Ekinözü spa and The Suleymanli thermae have been stimulated both by 241Am and 55Fe radioactive source. We have found various concentrations of Ca, Fe, Sr and Ba by the analysis of the water samples taken from Ekinözü spa and we have found Ca, Sr, Ba and trace of Ag in samples from Süleymanlı thermae.
Süleymanlı ılıcası ve Ekinözü içmesinin sularında toplam alfa ve toplam beta radyoaktivite konsantrasyonları ve radyonüklid aktivite konsantrasyonları ölçüldü. Bunlara ek olarak, Süleymanlı ılıcası ve Ekinözü içmesinin sularının elemental analizleri XRF sistemi ile yapıldı. Ekinözü içmesinden ve Süleymanlı ılıcasından alınan numuneler, sırasıyla 241Am ve 55Fe radyoaktif kaynakları ile uyarıldı. Ekinözü içmesinden alınan su örneklerinin elemental analizlerinde Ca, Fe, Sr ve Ba bulunurken, Süleymanlı ılıcasından alınan su örneklerinin elemental analizlerinde Ca, Sr, Ba ve iz düzeyde Ag bulunmuştur
