Abstract: © 2014 Elsevier Ltd. The accuracy and the optimization of determining radon and thoron progeny concentrations in air using air filtration followed by alpha activity measurements were investigated in details. The effects of radon and thoron concentrations, filtering duration and the choice of measuring intervals on relative standard deviations were analyzed. Obtaining satisfactory results by this method should be expected only in the case of high radon and thoron progeny concentrations in air. The optimization process also showed up to be dependent on the progeny concentration. Determinant of the system matrix and its effect on the sensitivity of the results were investigated.
