Radon activity in building materials

What is it about?

Studies of the radiation characteristics of the soil, soil-forming rocks and civil engineering buildings of the Volgograd region are presented.

Why is it important?

The studies made it possible to calculate the averaged annual effective equivalent doses to the population of the Volgograd Region caused by radon and the daughter products of the decay of radon. As a result, the patterns of changes in radon activity in the air of the premises have been established, depending on the time of the year, building materials and the purpose of the room.
