Languages of publication
Radon, which is the largest source of natural ionizing radiation, reaches surface as gas form or solvated in the ground water. Emanation of radon can has a profile which is disposed to increase or decrease depending on the effects of meteorological events or crust movements. Pamukkale, which was involved previously in the world heritage list of UNESCO, and the surrounding area have many groundwater and thermal springs that carry dissolved radon to surface. The aim of this study was to investigate the variations of radon in the water samples of the region.
