Abstract

Seasonal indoor radon concentration was surveyed, and the annual effective dose was estimated for the residents in some dwellings near the registered uranium mining lot areas, considered as one of the potential radon-prone area. The range of indoor radon concentration in each dwelling was from 17.7 to 1,610 Bq⋅m−3. The range of annual effective dose due to inhaled radon of the resident in each dwelling was from 0.93 to 20.5 mSv.
