CRIEPI’s Fractured Rock Studies - Analysis of dissolved radon

The radon concentration has been determined several times for groundwater samples collected in sampling campaigns in a growing number of C-FRS borehole intervals. The purpose is to demonstrate the application of radon concentration measurements for fracture characterisation. The equipment and methodology have also been tested with repeated calibration measurements.
