Measurement of radioactivity in the environment - Air: radon-222 Part 1: Origins of radon and its shortlived decay products and associated measurement methods

active, Most Current
Organization: CEN
Publication Date: 1 September 2015
Status: active
Page Count: 42
ICS Code (Radiation measurements): 17.240
scope:

This part of ISO 11665 outlines guidance for measuring radon-222 activity concentration and the potential alpha energy concentration of its short-lived decay products in the air.

The measurement methods fall into three categories:

a) spot measurement methods;

b) continuous measurement methods;

c) integrated measurement methods.

This part of ISO 11665 provides several methods commonly used for measuring radon-222 and its short-lived decay products in air.

This part of ISO 11665 also provides guidance on the determination of the inherent uncertainty linked to the measurement methods described in its different parts.
