Radon (/ ˈreɪdɒn /) is a radioactive, colorless, odorless, tasteless noble gas, occurring naturally as the decay product of radium. It is one of the densest substances that remains a gas under normal conditions, and is considered to be a health hazard due to its radioactivity. Its most stable isotope, Rn, has a half-life of days.

Radon and Its Decay Products in Indoor Air (Environmental Science and Technology: A Wiley-Interscience Series of Texts and Monographs) 1st Edition by William W. Nazaroff (Editor), Anthony V. Nero (Editor)Price: $ This book is a substantive review of the current understanding of radon and its decay products in indoor air.

More than 1, citations to the literature are included. The book is structured to examine the current state of knowledge of all aspects of the indoor radon problem. Radon and Its Decay Products in Indoor Air: An Overview (A. Nero, Jr.). SOURCES AND TRANSPORT PROCESSES.

Clearly, radon represents one of the most critical issues in environmental health today. This book provides a technically rigorous account of the occurrence of indoor radon, the nature and behaviour of its decay products, health effects, and techniques and strategies for minimizing exposure to radon.

Radon decay products are now understood to constitute a major source of radiation exposure. This study provides an account of the occurrence of indoor radon, the nature and behaviour of its decay products, health effects, and techniques and strategies for minimizing exposure.

Radon and its decay products in indoor air. In recent years, the perception of indoor radon as a relatively minor health issue has been radically altered: observations in.

Since much of the author's research has to do with outdoor radon and its decay products, it seems appropriate to have a book available stressing studies on outdoor radon 5/5(1).

This paper considers doses from radon and decay products when inhaled or ingested by one year old infants and by ten year old children. Doses from decay products deposited on skin are also discussed. For inhalation and ingestion, the general pattern of doses to organs is broadly similar to that in by: • Alpha particles are released when radon and two of its decay products (Polonium and ) decay.

• The alphas from the decay products (rather than from radon) are of the largest concern because they can be released while the decay products are in the Size: 4MB.

• Found all over the U.S., radon is a naturally occurring radioactive gas without color, odor, or taste that comes from the radioactive decay of uranium in soil, rock, and groundwater.

It emits ionizing radiation during its radioactive decay to several radioactive isotopes known as radon decay Size: 1MB. Archived Publications. Applied Turfgrass Science (–) Crop Management (–) Forage & Grazinglands (–) Journal of Production Agriculture (–).

Biokinetics of Short-Lived Radon Decay Products. In its recent reports, the International Commission on Radiological Protection (ICRP) have assessed the component of the dose associated with decay products from within the body following the intake of a radionuclide based on the biokinetic behavior of the specific decay product; so-called.

Inhalation Of Radon And Its Short-lived Decay Products. The occurrence of bronchogenic lung cancer after inhalation of Rn and its short-lived decay products is well established from follow-up studies of underground miners (Lubin and others ; ; UNSCEAR ; National Research Council; NCRP a). There is convincing evidence that occupational.

This book is intended to fill a gap in our knowledge of radon concentration in the outdoor atmosphere as well as to provide results of previously published indoor measurements. In addition, work on radon decay product ion concentrations in these environments contributes a unique set of results on effects of radon and its decay products on the Book Edition: 1.

The chart below lists all of the decay products of radon gas (radon) in their order of appearance. They are called the "radon progeny" (formerly "radon daughters").

Each radioactive element on the list gives off either alpha radiation or beta radiation -- and sometimes gamma radiation too -- thereby transforming itself into. Get this from a library. Radon and its decay products: occurrence, properties, and health effects: developed from a symposium sponsored by the Divisions of Environmental Chemistry and Nuclear Chemistry and Technology at the st Meeting of the American Chemical Society, New York, New York, April[Philip K Hopke; American Chemical Society.

Radon’s primary hazard arises from inhalation of the gas and its highly radioactive heavy metallic decay products (Polonium, Lead, and Bismuth) which tend to collect on dust in the air. The problem arises when these elements stick to the delicate. Radon and Its Decay Products: An Overview Philip K.

For the time being, two approaches were proposed but both do not agree well. There is a three-time difference between both of them.A comparison of radon and its decay products' behaviour in indoor air.There is sufficient evidence for the carcinogenicity of radon and its decay products in humans.
