Radon concentration Measurements in Qaysare of Erbil City


In this study the assessment of indoor radon concentration in the air of Qaysare in Erbil city have been studied by using CR-39 Solid–State Nuclear Track Detector Technique. A total of 18 selected zones inside the suq have been selected to place the dosimeters. The average radon concentration was found to be 21.54 ± 8.017 Bq/m3 ,which is fortunately lower than the standard international limit from 200-600 Bq/m3 as recommended by ICRP, IAEA. The potential alpha energy concentration and annual effective dose have been calculated. A proportional relationship between the annual effective dose and radon concentration within the studied region has been certified.
