    International Conference on Nuclear Tracks in Solids. Besançon, FRA, 1998/08/31.

    Plastic film is a useful detector of radon gas.

    The method of detection of the gas is used for several decades to measure radon concentrations both indoors and in soil.

    Experiences from radon measurements in Sweden indoors, in soil and in water using the plastic film Kodak LR 115-II are discussed in this report.

    Some examples are given from various projects One example is taken from a large scale mapping of indoor radon levels in houses, where the building material is the main source of radon.

    In another example the measurements from a large scale soil radon mapping are discussed.

    The use of the plastic film for measurements of radon levels in water is also discussed.

    All the investigations are made in order to give the authorities concerned information of the radon situation and to study the connection between high indoor radon levels and various types of cancers.
