The determination of soil-gas anomalies especially 222Rn anomalies, are important to precisely locate fault traces, as well as to investigate earthquake precursors. In this paper, we have studied and compared new rapid methods for on site determinations of radon (222Rn), thoron (220Rn) and total radon (222Rn+220Rn) in soil-gas. These new techniques pump the soil-gas continuously from the soil through a simple sampling tube to the counting cell for one-minute with discarding the excess. Then, either four one-minute counting periods (5-minute technique) or nine one-minute counting intervals (10-minute technique) are followed immediately. In all the methods, conversely to Morse"s method, the first counting period (C1) was not employed for calculations. Three calculation methods for the five-minute technique, two for the ten-minute technique and a modified Morse"s method are compared with theoretical values and different real soil-gases with different radon/thoron ratios. The affect of different flow rates of soil-gases into the counting cell was also investigated. Finally, the ten-minute technique seems to be a little more accurate, but the 5-minute technique is much more suitable for seismic field studies when a much larger number of determinations are required in a short time.
