Abstract Both detection and an accurate appraisal of the quantity of coolant gas activity is necessary in fission product monitoring in gas-cooled reactors. Two methods are described which were examined on a test system in the Low Intensity Test Reactor. In one of these methods, fission products were cold trapped'' on an adsorbent; in the other, activities were observed directly by radiation detectron instruments. Cold trapping with activated charcoal, which providing the most accurate results, did not yield instantaneous observations, whereas the converse was true for the instrumental method. (W.D.M.)
