To well assess the radiation exposure of the public in private homes and in workplaces, the information about the airborne concentration of Rn, Rn and their α-emitter progeny ( Po and Po in the case of Rn, and Po, Bi and Po in the case of Rn) is of great interest. The decay rate (λ j) in h −1 and α-energy (E j) in MeV of these radionuclides are listed in Cited by: Keywords: radon, radon progeny, volumetric activity, alpha particles, measurement method. 1. Introduction Radon gathers in the room and decays into metal ions, i e decay products. Radon itself (i e inert gas) is not as detrimental to health as its progenies (i e alpha emit-ters): Po, Pb, Bi, Po [1, 2]. Their ionizing power.

Radon measurement is not difficult to master, but it does require training and certification. Radon-certified home inspectors typically charge an additional $ to perform a radon measurement test and provide a radon report to the client, which can add significantly to your bottom line.

The naturally occurring radionuclide radon (Rn), together with its radioactive progeny, has been widely used to study atmospheric processes and to test and validate comprehensive global chemical transport models. Being a noble gas, radon is not removed from the .

Radon and its Progeny. What is radon. Radon is a dense, noble gas, with an atomic number of 86, meaning that there are 86 protons in the nucleus of a radon atom.

Radon is heavier than air, and it is soluble in water. Because it is a noble gas, radon is chemically inert and electrically uncharged. Certified Radon Measurement and Mitigation. Below is a list of contractors certified for measuring radon and reducing it. These contractors must pass a national exam, meet continuing education requirements, maintain a quality-assurance program, and follow appropriate testing protocols to be listed on this page.

This document is intended for persons and organizations carrying out radon testing in residential homes. The purpose of the testing is to evaluate radon levels in order to determine the need for remedial action to protect the occupants. Introduction. This section considers the uncertainties associated with calibration and field measurements of Rn and Rn exposures, radon progeny measurements, and derived quantities such as the equilibrium factor.

The sources of uncertainty associated with the determination of the long-term average radon activity concentration inferred from a measurement in a single year are Author: W.
