Abstract

On the basis of previous survey results of indoor radon for schools, detailed radon survey was conducted in one hundred three selected schools in Korea during the second semester in 2010. According to the results of effective dose assessment due to inhaled radon of during occupancy time, fourteen schools for requiring urgent mitigation action were selected, and recommended to the government.
