Title: Simple grab sampling methods for the measurement of WL(Rn) and WL(Tn) concentrations

Abstract

If one is air sampling for short -lived radon ( 222Rn) progeny only, then it is the so-called working level concentration (WL) that is normally determined. Often, a so-called short-term grab air sample is utilized followed by gross α counting techniques. Care on the part of health physics personnel is required here, as is an uninterrupted work time.
