Abstract

The paper presents the results of statistical processing of experimental data on the volumetric activity of radon within the premises of various buildings. The results were used to estimate internal radiation doses of inhaled radon and its short-lived degradation products in the population of Tomsk. The average annual population-weighed value of the effective dose was 1.24 mSv, which is 1.5-times higher than the estimated value for the Russian Federation.
