Radon in soil gas. A study of methods and instruments for determining radon concentrations in the ground


Sveriges Geologiska Undersokning, C (308): 58
Radon in soil gas. A study of methods and instruments for determining radon concentrations in the ground
This account presents a study of some of the commercially available detectors for field measurements of radon concentrations in soil gas and of radon flux from the ground surface. Most of the methods for measuring radon are based on detection of alpha particles or gamma radiation which are produced during radioactive decay of radon and radon daughter isotopes. The methods used can be described as active or passive.
