Comparison of radon and thoron exhalation and emanation in granites from Central Portugal

Filipa P. Domingos , Sérgio L. R. Sêco & Alcides J. S. C. Pereira
Thoron contribution to the inhaled dose is often neglected due to its shorter half-life and lack of strong gamma emissions that hinder its measurement. However, numerous studies report a significant contribution of thoron and/or its progeny to the dose received by the population. In the present work, radon and thoron exhalation rate and emanation coefficient were measured simultaneously with the accumulation method with an AlphaGuard DF2000 monitor in granite samples collected in high background radiation...
