Difference in Results Between Active and Pasive Methods During Measurement of the Radon Concentration in Land

Description

This paper is intended to compare the difference between the two measured radon metering methods in some areas of Kosovo known as Hot Spots. The measurements were realized by two methods: The Active Method was performed with the PRM 145 device while passive methods are using track detectors CR-39. The measurements were performed in a series of drillings for each of the two methods in the high concentration areas of Radon, mainly in the north-western part of Kosovo. From the measurement results except of the fact that we distinguish the high concentration of Radon-222 presence we also see the differences in results from both methods and we can conclude that both methods of measurement give approximate results with some changes but differ from the the manner and timing of the realization as well as the cost of the expenses.
