Abstract

A theoretical method for estimating the characteristics of radon transport in homogeneous soil is developed. The
method allows the following characteristics to be estimated: depth distribution function of the soil gas radon concentration,
equilibrium radon concentration in the soil air, depth at which the radon concentration reaches its
equilibrium value, radon flux density from the Earth?s surface, and convective radon transport velocity. The
method is based on soil gas radon concentration measurements and is appropriate in the case of relatively uniform
geology.
