Radon in the Living Environment, 1999, Athens, Greece

Measurements of indoor radon (222Rn) concentrations were carried out by using LR-115 II solid statenuclear track detectors (SSNTD). One hundred forty detectors were placed randomly in Patras housesfor two periods of three months exposure, from December 1996 to November 1997. The observedmean radon values compared with the standard recommended values are low, while the maximumrecorded value is found to be within the limits. The influence of seasonal variation as well thedistance from the ground on radon level were also investigated.
