Naturally occurring isotopes of radon in indoor air are identified as the second leading cause of lung cancer after tobacco smoking. Winnipeg had the highest radon ((222)Rn) concentration among 18 Canadian cities surveyed in the past. There is great interest to know the current radon as well as thoron ((220)Rn) concentrations in Winnipeg homes. Therefore,(More)
Vapour barrier membranes are often used as soil gas retarder in building construction. While vapour permeance characteristics of these membranes are well known and specified in Canadian standards, their radon diffusion coefficients are yet not available. This study provides test results of radon diffusion coefficients for 10 vapour barrier membranes(More)
