  1. Airborne 222Rn concentration in Cypriot houses.

    Article - En anglais

    Studies from a pilot survey in 89 houses in Cyprus show that the arithmetic mean for the housing stock is about 7 Bq m-3 and the annual effective dose equivalent to the population from radon progeny is <330 muSV Y-1.

    Four houses have values >30 Bq m-3, corresponding to two standard deviations from the mean value.

    The highest value recorded was 78 Bq m-3.

    These results are considerably lower than those of other countries reported in the literature.

    Radon concentrations in houses is correlated to the local geology.
