AB  - Godišnja merenja radona u zatvorenim prostorijama izvedena su u 20 uglavnom
prizemnih kuća u regionu Gore, u južnom delu Kosova i Metohije. CR-39 Gammadata
detektori su postavljani u dnevnim i spavaćim sobama. Godišnja koncentracija radona
u dnevnim sobama kretala se u rasponu od 26 do 315 Bq m-3 sa srednjom vrednošću od
85,7 Bq m-3
, a u spavaćim sobama u rasponu od 28 do 448 Bq m-3 sa srednjom
vrednošću 75,6 Bq m- 3. Distribucije izmerenih koncentracija radona u dnevnim i
spavaćim sobama imaju očekivani lognormalni oblik; Mann-Whitney test je potvrdio da
ne postoji značajna razlika između koncentracija radona u različitim sobama. Najveće
izmerene vrednosti koncentracije radona u obe sobe su u kući izgrađenoj od kamena i
betona.
AB  - Annual indoor radon measurements were carried out in two rooms of 20 mostly ground
floor dwellings in Gora District, Southwestern part of Kosovo and Metohija. The CR-39
Gammadata detectors were placed in the living rooms and bedrooms. Annual radon
concentration in the living rooms range from 26 to 315 Bq m-3 with a mean value of
85.7 Bq m-3, while the same one in bedrooms range from 28 to 448 Bq m-3 with mean
value of 75.6 Bq m-3. The distributions of radon concentration measured in living rooms
and bedrooms follow the expected lognormal shape; Mann-Whitney test confirmed no
significant systematic difference between radon concentrations in the two room types
appears. The highest value of radon concentration in both rooms was in dwelling built
from stone and concrete.

45 Bq/kg, 11 Bq/kg и 99 Bq/kg, респективно. У плоду глога се максимално акумулирао
137Cs (48 Bq/kg), а максимална вредност концентрације 40K измерена је у

AB  - The specific activities of natural radionuclides 40K, 232Th, 235U, 226Ra and artificial
radionuclide 137Cs were measured in dry samples of different plants as well as in the
urban soil which plants originate, and from unpopulated areas in the region of Prizren.
Measurements of specific activity in all samples were performed on HPGe coaxial
detector type by spectrometry of gamma radiation. Maximum activity concentrations of
232Th, 235U and 226Ra were measured in a mountain tea and it amounted 45 Bq/kg, 11
Bq/kg and 99 Bq/kg, respectively. A maximum accumulated activity of 137Cs was for the
hawthorn fruits (48 Bq/kg), and the maximum value of the concentration of 40K was
measured in tomato (914 Bq/kg). Calculated transfers factors of radionuclides from the
soil to different crop plants were in the range of 0.06-1.365 for 40K. The concentrations
of 232Th, 235U, 226 Ra and 137 Cs were below detection limits in some plant samples and
in the soil, and the maximum value of the transfer factors were 0.30, 2.5, 0.33 and 0.59
respectively.

AB  - The paper deals with the results of the investigations of indoor radon measurements in more than 300 rural and urban dwellings in Kosovo and Metohija. All measurements were carried out using CR-39 solid State nuclear track detectors by similar protocols and within two series in 1990-s and in 2000-s, in 34 settlements divided by 9 regions, thus covering significant part of Kosovo. For most of measured points the adjustment for seasonal variation was necessary and had been conducted. Highest average values of indoor radon concentrations were found in rural settlements of Lipljan and Vitina regions, 512 and 452 Bq/m(3), respectively. Combined analysis allows indoor radon concentration of 220 Bq/m(3) to be suggested as representative estimate for Kosovo, while additional data appear. Observed pattern of indoor radon seasonal variation and difference of radon levels between ground and upper floors suggest soil radon as primary source of indoor radon and significance of convection type radon entry.

AB  - The measurement campaigns have been done in the rural community of Niska. Banja, a spa town located in southern Serbia, to evaluate population exposure to natural radioactivity. After a screening survey in 200 houses, annual radon and thoron concentrations were measured in 34 houses, and in 2004 a detailed investigation was carried out at six houses with elevated indoor radon concentrations. The paper presents the results of these detailed measurements. The complementary techniques were applied to determine radon and thoron concentrations in indoor air, in soil gas, radon exhalation from soil, soil permeability, and indoor and outdoor gamma doses. Soil and water samples were collected and analysed in the laboratory. Indoor radon and thoron. concentrations were found to be more than 1 kBq m(-3) and 200 Bq m(-3) respectively. Extremely high concentrations of soil-gas radon ( GT 2000 kBq m(-3)) and radon exhalation rates (1.5 mBq m(-2) s(-1)) were observed. These results will be utilised to set up the methodology for a more systematic investigation. (c) 2006 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.

AB  - The results of field investigations of natural radiation exposures of the general population in two stable rural communities in Yugoslavia are presented. The principal emphasis was on exposures to contemporary indoor radon, but measurements of external penetrating radiation absorbed dose rates in air were carried out in the majority of cases. In addition, in a limited number of dwellings, measurements of thoron gas concentrations were made. By means of making a series of sequential 3-month radon measurements, both seasonal variations and annual average radon levels in the dwellings were determined. Using passive alpha track detectors, individual radon and thoron indoor concentrations as high as 9591 Bq m(-3) and 709 Bq m(-3), respectively, were detected while absorbed dose rates in air in the dwellings as high as 430 nGy h(-1) were recorded. On the basis of these different types of measurements, assessments could be made of the integrated natural radiation exposures being received by the populations. In addition to contemporary radon measurements, retrospective radon exposure assessments in most of the dwellings were made on the basis of measurements of Po-210 concentrations in both surface (glass) traps and in volume (porous materials) traps. A description is given of the sampling strategics and protocols used in this field work. It is shown that at least one stable rural community receiving high natural radiation exposures, has been clearly identified and plans for future health investigations of the population there are outlined.
