Xenon gamma-ray spectrometer for monitoring of 222Rn concentration by means of measurement of its daughter nuclei
gamma-ray emission intensity and the main characteristics of this device are presented. Time variations of radon
concentration can be interpreted as possible precursors of the Earth’s seismic activity, such as an earthquake, several
days prior to these events. The results of the first experiments that were carried out in the Caucasus region of Russia
show the possibility of using the described xenon gamma-ray spectrometer for this task.

Conference Presentations are recordings of oral presentations given at SPIE conferences and published as part of the proceedings. They include the speaker's narration with video of the slides and animations. Most include full-text papers. Interactive, searchable transcripts and closed captioning are now available for 2018 presentations, with transcripts for prior recordings added daily.
