Modeling Radon Diffusion across Some Areas of Southern Jordan
Abstract: A numerical has been developed for the transport of radon gas in the soil-rocks of Afrahotsprings, southern of Jordan using a one-dimensional model diffusion formula. Model Result shows a consistent relation between distance from radiation source and radon concentration. Data model output were in the range of data collected from previous studies.
