Abstract: Underground gamma-ray spectrometry is a fundamental tool for measurement of environmental radioactivity. The extremely low background in underground laboratories opens the possibility of performing studies which otherwise need more complex techniques, e.g. radiochemistry, albeit at the cost of long measurement times. This paper gives a brief overview of the current status of the technique in Europe and exemplifies its use by describing some recent studies of environmental radioactivity.
