Summary:In the region which includes the urban area of Coimbra soil gas radon concentrations of 0.1-100 kBq.m-3 were measured at 0.8 meters depth in sedimentary formations; 5 to 28 kBq.m-3 are commonly observed values. The relation between radon concentration and rock characteristics is discussed, and it is concluded that radon potential is generally low to moderate, but locally high.
