Résumé

The relationship between forest litter thickness and gamma-ray emissions were investigated using portable field spectrometer measurements along two sites located within the boreal forest of Québec, Canada. Results show that total gamma-ray emissions provide a covariable that is linearly related to litter thickness. This secondary information can be used to increase the precision of the estimations obtained from a cokriging process. Thus, gamma-ray measurements can be incorporated into experimental designs to compensate for a scarcity of measurements.
