The influence of geological basement on the soil gas and indoor radon concentrations measured on inhomogeneous Quaternary sediments was examined along rivers passing through heterogeneous geological basement with different radon index. The results show high effect of the geological basement on the indoor radon concentrations measured on the Quaternary sediments and low effect of thickness and type of the sediments.
