Abstract

The CEC's 1990-1991 Radiation Protection Research Programme is reviewed in general, and specific details are given of radon research. The report describes: - radon sources, modelling and remedial actions; - physico-chemical studies and indoor aerosol behaviour; - a retrospective assessment of indoor exposure to radon; - an assessment of geological factors influencing the potential radon hazard in karstic regions, and - epidemiological studies. The recommendations of the Commission are presented and compared with existing radon control policies in the member states.
