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 August 31, 1986

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 August 31, 1986 The report summarizes a project in which a new detector for measuring ''radon only'' was designed and built.
