Abstract

Techniques and devices for measuring the emanation power and permeabdity of soil samples are developed. A Monte Carlo simulation is used to model the transport of radon to 112 basements in Minnesota. Correlation between this model and the measured indoor radon concentration is compared to other leading models' correlations. This model has been found to have the strongest correlation.
