Abstract

In the present work it was studied the content of radioactive gas radon - Rn-222 in the number of sources of spring located in some settlements nearby to Tbilisi city (the capital of Georgia) in the territory of so-called Tbilisi and Kartli artesian basins. Research was carried out during the annual period (January-December); samples for measurements in some settlements were selected monthly. Radon detector RAD7 was used for determining radon content. It was established, that radon content in water considerably changes depending on the source location as well as on water type too. So, for example, radon content in various sources of spring water was within the limits from several units of Bq/L up to 100 Bq/L and more. The possibility of influence on various factors on the radon content was analyzed, for example, features of the soil-geological structure, features of water sampling, etc. A comparison with literary data has been carried out.
