Title: Radon source apportionment in the home, dosimetry and risk modeling. Final report, 1993--1997

Radon source apportionment in the home, dosimetry and risk modeling. Final report, 1993--1997 This research covered the following 3 topics in 4 years: (1) the source apportionment of {sup 222}Rn in the home; (2) the internal bronchial dosimetry of inhaled {sup 222}Rn decay products; and (3) the lung cancer risk from inhalation of the short lived decay products of {sup 222}Rn. A 4th year of support was appended to this grant with a switch in research effort to determine a method for long term measurement of the particle size distribution of the short lived decay products in homes.
