Influence of pollution and building materials on domestic radioactivity in Marrakechi dwellings
- 33 Downloads
Domestic radioactivity has been studied by using LR-115 and CR-39 solid state nuclear track detectors (SNTD) and a suitable beta- and gamma-gaseous counter. A new calibration method, based on measuring thoron (220Rn) to radon (222Rn) ratios, has been developed for determining the α-activity originating from radon in different Marrakechi dwellings. The influence of building materials as well as pollution and airing factors, on domestic radioactivity has been investigated.
