Title Rapid measurement of radon, decay products, unattached fractions, and working level values of mine atmospheres.
Bibliographic information Apr. 1975, Vol.28, No.4, p.472-474. Illus. 4 ref.
Abstract Proposed method of obtaining these data by a new manipulation of the "summation rules" results. Properly applied, with proper instrumentation, total information on the airborne concentrations of radon and its short-lived daughters can be determined in a total of 7.5min. The information can be developed at the location sampled, and is thus available for immediate use.
