Abstract (in english)
   Natural underground places (such karst caves) are practically of marginal interest in case of the potential radon risk mapping. But the radon concentrations in some caves should be very high, therefore there are several regulations (based on ICRP recommendations) of the Czech State Office for Nuclear Safety (SONS) to minimise possible health damage to people who spend longer time in the underground, esp. for the personnel of caves public-open. This paper describes a possible methodology that allos using continual radon monitors (such as RADIM3 etc.) to estimate radon concentrations and potential doses more exactly by taking into acount long-term variations of radon concentrations
