The purpose of the radon monitoring is to provide information to participating homeowners or consumers on the average radon concentrations within their residences.   Nationwide survey of indoor radon levels in Korea. The International Commission on Radiological Protection Publication (ICRP), issued in , proposed the need for an efficient measure to minimize radon exposure that defines standards for indoor radon concentrations and designates areas at high risk for radon exposure, as part of a concentrated effort to manage indoor radon Cited by:

  ASHI Radon Mitigation System Inspection Checklist This checklist is meant to educate home inspection clients about radon, and to encourage radon testing and mitigation when elevated radon levels are found. Our testing process for radon uses state of the art continuous radon monitors. These monitors take multiple air samples per hour for a two day period. These levels are then averaged and reported in a measurement called pico curies per liter. The results need to be under pCi/L in order to be considered a safe on: Tim Ave NW Suite A, North canton, , Ohio.

Possible Health Effects of Exposure to Residential Electric and Magnetic Fields also discusses the tools available to measure exposure, common types of exposures, and what is known about the effects of exposure.

RADON MEASUREMENT UNITS. Concentrations of radon gas in air are normally given in units of picocuries per liter (pCi/L) or becquerels per cubic meter (Bq/m 3); and 1 pCi/L is equal to 37 Bq/m trations of radon decay products (RDPs) normally are expressed in working levels (WL); 1 WL is defined as any combination of the short-lived RDPs in 1 L of air that results in the ultimate release.
