Title: The measurement of /sup 222/Rn and its relationship to environmental variables: Factors controlling indoor radon: Final report for the contract period June 1, 1982 to May 31, 1985

The measurement of /sup 222/Rn and its relationship to environmental variables: Factors controlling indoor radon: Final report for the contract period June 1, 1982 to May 31, 1985 Indoor levels of radon-222 and daughter nuclei were monitored at various locations within a single family dwelling and in an apartment building. Indoor levels were correlated with soil temperature, atmospheric pressure, wind, rain and time of year. 9 refs., 23 figs., 19 tabs.
