Title Transformation of field monitoring results into miners' annual exposures to radon progeny
Bibliographic information 1992, Vol.5, No.1, p.77-86. Illus. 8 ref.
Abstract This paper presents a method for estimating the radiation hazard affecting miners, using the values of radon daughter concentration in the work environment. Measurements carried out in metal ore mines showed that seasonal changes in radon daughter concentration were the principal factor to be taken into consideration in the estimation of the hazard. These measurements also confirm the correctness of the method.
