Radon concentrations were measured (in quite similar conditions) in two regions of central Portugal with different geological settings. General conclusions are: the soil radon potential is mainly dependent on geological factors, specially lithology, uranium content and structure; in order to have a Comprehensive understanding of radon distribution in soils, small-scale studies are needed.
