Abstract Photons, when emitted from radioactive sources in seawater, are subsequent to multiple scattering mechanisms, namely the photoelectric effect, the Compton scattering and the pair production effect. Thus, the monoenergetic emission of photons in seawater will result in equilibrium in a distribution of photons with different energies. PDSW is a MATLAB program which calculates this distribution and can be found useful for the characterization of measured spectra obtained by gamma detectors such ...
