Utility of Short-term Basement Screening Radon Measurements to Predict Year-long Residential Radon Concentrations on Upper Floors.

Abstract

This study investigated temporal and spatial variability between basement radon concentrations (measured for ∼7 d using electret ion chambers) and basement and upper floor radon concentrations (measured for 1 y using alpha track detectors) in 158 residences in Iowa, USA. Utility of short-term measurements to approximate a person's residential radon exposure… (More)
