Measurement of radioactivity in the environment -- Air: radon-222 -- Part 1: Origins of radon and its short-lived decay products and associated measurement methods

ISO 11665-1:2012 outlines guidance for measuring radon-222 activity concentration and the potential alpha energy concentration of its short-lived decay products in the air.

The measurement methods fall into three categories:

  1. spot measurement methods;
  2. continuous measurement methods;
  3. integrated measurement methods.

ISO 11665-1:2012 provides several methods commonly used for measuring radon-222 and its short-lived decay products in air.

ISO 11665-1:2012 also provides guidance on the determination of the inherent uncertainty linked to the measurement methods described in its different parts.
