Radon - geology excursion

A one-day radon - geology excursion will be held in the Oslo area the 15th of August for participants of the 9th International Workshop on Geological Aspects of Radon Risk Mapping (EGG-03) and the workshop of Radon Risk Mapping.

Few parts in the world can show such a varying radon affected geology and the area is well mapped and numerous indoor radon measurements has been carried out in single family homes. In many homes very high radon concentrations have been measured. In the Oslo area radon problems are connected to Precambrian uranium rich granites, 900 my old, and the Upper Cambrian alum shale, on witch large parts of central Oslo is built, and the very permeable fluvial glacial and talus material.

During the excursion we will visit areas with alum shale as well as granites, buildings in these areas and different methods for radon remediation. The excursion is organized through the local organizing committee, and free of charge since it is covered by the Norwegian Radiation Protection Authority. The number of participants will be limited to 40. During the excursion lunch will be served.
