The authors have developed a method to determine the dissolved radon and radium content of water samples using track etch type radon monitors. The device is an immersed, small volume radon monitor with a CR-39 track etch detector. The monitor is sealed from the water by a thin radon permeable rubber foil. The dissolved radon and/or the radium content of water samples can be determined from two independent radon exposures by using the solutions of a non-steady state differential equation which describes the temporal variation of radon content of water and by using an experimentally determined calibration coefficient.
