Abstract

Three different systems for the determination of radon in water have been examined: liquid scintillation counting (LSC), degassification followed by Lucas cell counting (LCC) and gamma counting (GC). Particular care has been devoted to the sampling methodologies of the water. Comparative results for several environmental samples are given. A critical evaluation is also given on the basis of the final aim of the measurements. © 1995 Elsevier Science BV. All rights reserved.
