In the UK, the Action Level for radon gas in domestic buildings has stood at 200 Bq.m-3 for many years. Some years ago, our group made an extensive study of 7-day, 1-month and 3-month measurements in thirty-four un-remediated dwellings in a high-radon area over a full year. It was shown that one-week exposures were less reliable indicators of the long-term radon level, but that this variability was related to the changes in radon level, due to occupancy, weather changes and other influences… Expand
