- A new method is presented for determining the airborne concentrations of RaA, RaB and RaC in atmospheres contaminated with Radon-222. The method employs alpha spectroscopy to measure the count rates of RaA and RaC′ present on a membrane filter sample at two post-sampling times. The individual air concentrations and the statistical variances associated with each then may be calculated from the equations given. Theoretical and experimental comparisons are presented which indicate the improved accuracy of the spectroscopic method over methods previously available.
