Abstract : An intercomparison is made between the results of Monte Carlo calculations and two independent experimental determinations of values for the differential dose albedo of gamma rays on concrete. The validity of a semiempirical formula for gamma-ray albedo is examined. Information is presented on the current status of our knowledge of gamma-ray albedo, and the direction of future work is indicated. (Author)
