Analytical procedures for diagnosing radon entry mechanisms into buildings are described. Flowcharts are presented that develop a logical sequence of events in the diagnostic process, including problem diagnosis, selection and implementation of mitigation systems, and post-mitigation evaluation. The initial problem assessment procedures rely on an organized set of measurements to characterize the structure, the surrounding soil, and the likely entry pathways from the soil into the building.
