The publication updates the Interim EPA Radon Measurement Protocols by providing guidance for using a total of 11 measurement techniques. EPA has extensive laboratory and field experience with seven of the methods: continuous working level and radon monitors, alpha-track detectors, charcoal canisters, RPISUs, and grab techniques. The remaining four methods are interim; EPA has evaluated these techniques in the laboratory and found them to be satisfactory. The protocols provide instrument-specific technological guidance that can be used as the basis for standard operating procedures.
