First Measurements of Radon at NIMRD ”Grigore Antipa”
AbstractUntil other risks and distant dangers, there are some factors that can affect human health significantly. Therefore, concern about living and working conditions is legitimate. One of the factors that require special attention is Radon, a natural radioactive gas, that is present around us. Supervision of its level has become a current necessity for assessing health risks and establishing the most appropriate measures for protection, if the situation requires. The paper presents the first results of Radon measurements initiated at NIMRD “Grigore Antipa” headquarters, a building located in the Romanian Black Sea coastal zone. These were conducted between 07.05-07.08.2018. The values found were in the range of 10-429 Bq/m3. These results will constitute a database in the field, with daily hourly measurements and monthly averages. Active and passive measurement methods have been applied. The investigation activity continues.
