Title Determination of environmental or occupational 222Rn in air and water and 226Ra in water with feasible and rapid methods of sampling and measurement.
Bibliographic information Oct. 1976, Vol.31, No.4, p.343-348. Illus. 14 ref.
Abstract Description of the air-sample container (flexible superpolyamid foil, capacity 30l) and water-sample container (special glass bottles, volume 0.5 and 2.5l), and the laboratory measuring equipment for 222Rn and for 226Ra. The measuring equipment consists of a 10-20l ionisation chamber connected to an electronic electrometer and a chart-recorder. 226Ra in water is determined by measuring the 222Rn formed.
