In this study, natural and artificial radioactivity concentrations in sediment samples taken from Savsat Black Lake located on the Nature Park in Artvin were determined using a high purity germanium detector. It was determined that U-238, Th-232, K-40 and Cs-137 radioisotope concentrations in the sediment samples varied between 8.15 and 32.67, 5.83 and 33.08, 185.88 and 589.30, and 0.86 and 438.04 Bq kg(-1), respectively. In order to evaluate the radiological hazards, some radiological parameters were calculated and compared with the values recommended by international organizations. The results showed that the sediments in the study area will not pose any health risk for the visitors of Savsat Black Lake.
