(requires an Internet connection)
During the summer of 1968, radon concentrations in surface waters were measured in three lakes in Gatineau Park, Quebec: Pink Lake, Kingsmere Lake and Fortune Lake. Relative radon and thoron concentrations in soil emanations were also measured in traverses near the lakes or at the water sampling sites.
A summary of the work can be found in Geological Survey of Canada Paper 69-46.
