Description of research topics : "Environmental studies on radon"


Aims

* Identify key parameters governing the production, migration and variability (both spatial and temporal) of radon from mine tailings for eventual application to natural soils.

* Learn more about radon sources and the factors influencing the variability of radon concentration in various compartments of our environment.

* Limit public exposure in buildings displaying high radon activity concentration.

* Provide the general public, the building industry, and those in charge of public buildings with information about radon and ways of reducing its concentration.

Main topics

* Conducting surveys of situations arising as a result of the presence of large amounts of radon in public places or former industrial sites contaminated during radioactive ore processing.

* Developing SOCRATE, a stand-alone, transportable mapping tool designed to measure environmental radioactivity.

* Mapping potential radon exhalation from French soils.

* Radon in spas.

* Studying the impact of uranium ore tailings based on an experimental program focusing on radon migration from tailings to the atmosphere and on the behavior of short-lived radon decay products near mining sites.
