Measurement of induced gamma radiation (gamma-gamma) in two energy windows allows discrimination of the radiation resulting from Compton scattering (above 0.6 MeV) from that of photoelectric absorption (below 0.6 MeV). The photoelectric effect is strongly dependent on atomic number and hence lithology.
