Abstract
Radon (222Rn) is a carcinogenic gas produced by the radioactive decay of radium (226Ra). It has been reported that soil and soil-gas are primary factors that could cause indoor radon problems. Six sites were selected for this study—Sanbook, Gangcheon, Jikyeong, Choojung, Geumsung and Homyoung—each was classified according to bedrock type. In order to investigate soil-gas radon activities and radon emanating power, innovated active and passive detecting methods were developed and applied under both field and laboratory conditions. Statistical analysis of results confirmed that the radon activity values measured using either active or passive methods under field or laboratory conditions could be interchangeable with each other.
