    The soils of the earth constantly emit radon. Sources of Radiation* In most homes, the soil accounts for about 90% of indoor radon. Radon moves through air spaces in the soil and rode and can enter a building through cracks or openings (sewer pipe, cracks in concrete, wall-floor joints, hollow concrete block walls). cates that radon emanation from soil is a natural process. The distribution is shifted to-wards lower concentrations of radon activity, and the measured values are common for this region of Europe [7]. Fig. 7. Log-normal distribution of radon emanated from soil The results of measuring the activity concentration of radon in closed rooms that have.

    As stated earlier, radon is a radioactive gas that comes from the natural decay of radium and is found in nearly all soil types and rock formations, including sand. As you can see from the chart, radon is present in the water we drink, the materials we use to build our homes with and even the outside air we breath.

The measurements and map were developed under the Florida Radon Research Program to identify the amount of radon resistance that is needed for new buildings in different parts of Florida.

While the measurement protocol and radon map have a common theoretical basis, the tests were designed to represent small site areas (4, sq m), compared.

The protocol is an alterna- tive to the radon protection map and must only be performed with standard methods after any site recontouring that could af- fect the water table or the distribution of soils. If You Hire a Qualified Radon Tester. In many cases, home buyers and sellers may decide to have the radon test done by a qualified radon tester who knows the proper conditions, test devices, and guidelines for obtaining a reliable radon test result.

Wikipedia Citation. Protocols for Radon and Radon Decay Product Measurements in Homes Office of Air and Radiation (J) EPA R, June Preface. This document, the Protocols for Radon and Radon Decay Product Measurements in Homes (EPA R, May ), is a guidance Size: KB. The objective of mapping soil radon potentials in Florida is to provide a sound scientific basis for implementing radon-protective building standards where needed, and to avoid the cost of unnecessary implementation where they are not needed.

The measure of soil radon potential is defined as a calculated annual-average rate of. Soil gas radon concentration at “Valle della Caffarella” test site (Roma, Italy) was monitored in December and Juneusing three different gas sampling and measurement techniques (alpha spectrometry, scintillation cells and ionization chambers).

Soil radon gas and/or its exhalation rate are used as indicators for some applications, such as uranium exploration, indoor radon concentration, seismic activity, location of subsurface faults, etc., and also in the studies where the main interest is the field verification of radon transport models.

This work proposes a versatile method for the soil radon sampling Cited by: 4. The manual, in support of the Florida Radon Research Program, contains standard protocols for key measurements where data quality is vital to the program.

It contains two sections. The first section, soil measurements, contains field sampling protocols for soil gas permeability and radon.

Florida Radon Potential. The only way to know your radon level is to test your building. This Florida radon zone map shows areas where it is very likely there will be elevated radon levels. Zone 1 counties (red) are those with a predicted radon level greater than 4 picoCuries per liter (pCi/L).Radon and Homes • Radon is a colorless, odorless gas.

You can’t see it, taste it or smell it, but it is always present in the air you breathe. • The vast majority of radon comes from the radioactive decay of uranium, which has been in the ground since the Earth formed.This document, tine Protocols for Radon and Radon Decay Product Measurements in Homes (EPA R, May ), is a guidance document.

However, one condition of participation in the Agency's National Radon Proficiency Program (RPP) for radon measurement and radon reduction (mitigation) proficiency, is conformance with these protocols.
