For making the spectrometric determination of the exposure rate from the environment as well as the radioactive material more practical, an accurate calculation method of the individual exposure rate for the detected gamma nuclides from that spectrum should be suggested without the sophisticated calibration procedure. In this study, the calculation method for the individual exposure rate for detected gamma nuclides from a 3″×3″ NaI(Tl) detector was suggested by introducing the concept of the dose rate spectroscopy and the peak-to-total ratio in the energy spectrum for the exposure rate, which means just a form of multiplied counts and the value of a G-factor in the spectrum.
