WORKSHOP GARRM - GENERAL TOPICS

RADON RISK MAPPING AND RADON ACTION PLANS

-        NEW RESEARCH ACTIVITIES AND RESULTS

NATIONAL STRATEGIES, RADON ACTION PLANS, APPROACHES TO RADON RISK; RADON RISK MAPPING ON VARIOUS SCALES INCLUDING GEOGENIC MAPPING & DETAILED MEASUREMENTS; DELINEATION OF RADON PRONE/PRIORITY AREAS

RADON IN GEOLOGICAL ENVIRONMENT

-        NEW RESEARCH ACTIVITIES AND RESULTS

METHODS OF MEASUREMENTS AND CLASSIFICATION OF RADON RISK; PASSIVE AND ACTIVE SOIL GAS SAMPLING; PERMEABILITY AS THE SECOND DECISIVE PARAMETER FOR RADON POTENTIAL ASSESSMENT; UNDERSTANDING RADON TRANSPORT MECHANISMS IN THE SOIL AND FROM THE SOIL INTO THE BUILDINGS

 Due to our common experiences from last workshops, we would like to ask you for oral presentations (15 min) or posters.

In addition to lectures/presentations, we would like to open meaningful exchange of experiences/knowledge, during the Thursday afternoon – together with ERA - through “world cafe” and face to face moderated discussions. The main topics will appear (as usually) during the first two days of GARRM + participants are kindly invited to propose any interesting topic for such discussions.

 Selection of papers presented at the GARRM + ERA workshops will be published in JERA.

VENUE

The conference will be held in the beautiful city of Prague, capital of the Czech Republic, at the conference hall of the Masarykova College, the Czech Technical University (the same as in 2006, 2018 and 2021). The Masarykova College is located in the western part of central Prague, near the Prague Castle, the dominant symbol of Prague, in the direction to the Ruzyne airport, close by to the Dejvicka underground station (line A). It is also well served by tram and buses. The best way to reach the venue from the airport is to use the bus No. 119, which goes from the airport (it has a stop at terminal 1 and 2 as well) to the Veleslavin underground station and then use the underground line A (two stations) to the mentioned Dejvicka underground station.

ACCOMMODATION

On site accommodation (i.e. directly at the Masarykova College, medium/low price) is possible but limited in number.

You can try to book via e-mail: rezervace-mk@cvut.cz or via booking.com

The direct neighbourhood has also a large number of excellent hotels, pensions, hostels, which you can find via internet (we recommend to concentrate on accommodation in the central parts of Prague – Prague 1 and/or Prague 6). 

 

RIM - GENERAL INFORMATION

Radon intercomparison measurement will be organized at two reference sites (chosen from three reference sites established in 2000, located 60 km SW of Prague near the city Milín in the Czech Republic, accessible for cars). During this RIM we would like to focus not only on comparison of resulting soil-gas radon concentrations, but on the sampling methods themselves. Radon intercomparison measurement will be organized for single participants or groups of participants. Results of tests will be anonymous, each participant (group) will be denoted by a code.

With respect to the discussions during the previous GARRM workshop, we would like to organize the soil-gas permeability intercomparison measurements (at the same time, at the same areas) as well.

More detailed information will be available at the workshop webpage, details will be discussed with all participants of RIM via e-mail. 

Accommodation: Please, take into consideration, that this year “only” one-day intercomparison is held. Suitable accommodation, just in the area of radon reference sites, is available in “Hotel u Milina” (www.hotelumilina.cz).
