One of the requirements of the recently approved EU-BSS (European Basic Safety Standards Directive, EURATOM, 2013) is the design and implementation of national radon action plans in the member states (Annex XVIII). Such plans require radon surveys. The analysis of indoor radon data is supported by the existing knowledge about geogenic radiation. With this(More)
The present paper discusses the results of an empirical study of four approaches to reducing indoor radon concentrations based on depressurization techniques in underground sumps. The experiments were conducted in prototype housing built in an area of Spain where the average radon concentration at a depth of 1 m is 250 kBq m(-3). Sump effectiveness was(More)
Indoor radon poses a health risk confirmed by a variety of studies. High concentrations of this gas can be found in closed enclosures depending on several factors like activity of source term, permeability of the source/indoor air inter-phase, as well as the interchange rate of external air. Low ventilation rates together with the presence of 226-Ra in(More)
