We have developed a method to determine dissolved radon and radium content in water samples using track etch type radon monitors. The device is an immersed, small volume radon monitor with 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 non steady state differential equation which describes the temporal variation of the radon content of water and by using an experimentally determined calibration coefficient.
