Title Development of a long-term personal radon monitor
Bibliographic information Nov. 1995, Vol.56, No.11, p.1107-1110. Illus. 15 ref.
Abstract A personal radon monitor based on track etch technology and housed in a watch casing was developed and field tested. The monitors were worn continuously for two months by 49 subjects. Standard REM AT-100 radon monitors were placed in the homes of each subject and local background radon levels were used to estimate exposure for time spent away from home. A good correlation was obtained between the standard and watch monitors. The watch monitors were well received by participants and are potentially useful for domestic and occupational settings.
