Abstract  

Because liquid scintillation (LS) counting will be the preferred analytical method following the forthcoming announcement of a maximum contamination level for waterborne radon in the U.S., a study was conducted using LS counting to examine the effects of cap-liner type, fluid type, agitation time, dark adaption, quench, and water-to-fluor ratio on radon measurements. Understanding the influence of these components can eliminate radon losses, decrease detection limits and increase accuracy. Application of LS to radon standards and 100 wellwater samples showed it to provide consistent results over a wide range of concentrations and decay times.
