    Radon is a chemical element with the symbol Rn and atomic number It is a radioactive, colorless, odorless, tasteless noble occurs naturally in minute quantities as an intermediate step in the normal radioactive decay chains through which thorium and uranium slowly decay into lead and various other short-lived radioactive elements; radon itself is the immediate decay . Home Buyer’s and Seller’s Guide to Radon U.S. EPA K, November 20 EPA RECOMMENDS: Q If you are buying or selling a home, have it tested for radon. Q For a new home, ask if radon-resistant construction features were used and if the home has been tested. Q Fix the home if the radon level is 4 picocuries per liter (pCi/L) or higher. Q Radon levels less File Size: 1MB.   A house in Pennsylvania in that had the outrageously high radon level of 2, pCi/L was feet away from another house, on the same soil and geologic formation, whose radon levels were : Russell Mclendon. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has assigned every U.S. county to one of three radon potential zones based on five factors: actual indoor radon measurements, aerial measurements of radioactivity, predominant geology, soil permeability, and typical foundation types. Most of the Commonwealth of Virginia falls into high to moderate.

A high radon potential area is defined as an area in which the average indoor radon screening measurement is expected to be 4 pCi/L or greater.

Geologic terrains of the United States with high radon potential include: 1. Introduction. Lung cancer is the second most commonly diagnosed cancer and has the highest mortality rate of all cancers (National Cancer Institute, ).After smoking, radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer (Al-Zoughool and Krewski,U.S.

Department of Health and Services, ).It is estimated that 15% of lung cancer cases in men and 53% in women are Cited by: 7.

Of the 14 geologic formation categories in north central Kentucky, four were associated with median radon levels, ranging from to pCi/L. CONCLUSION: Radon potential maps that account for geologic factors and observed radon values may be superior to using observed radon values by: 7.

THE RADON EMANATION COEFFICIENT: AN IMPORTANT TOOL FOR GEOLOGIC RADON POTENTIAL ESTIMATIONS R. Randall Schumann U.S. Geological Survey Denver, Colorado ABSTRACT The fraction of radon atoms generated from radium decay that are released from into a rock or soil pore space is defined as the radon emanation coefficient, or emanating power, of File Size: KB.

The Geology of Radon in Kansas Shane Lyle Introduction. Radon (boldface terms in glossary), an invisible, odorless, and tasteless gas, comes from the breakdown of naturally occurring uranium found within soil, rocks, and ground water. Radon is classified as a Class A carcinogen by the U.S.

Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), meaning that scientific research has. A more direct and immediate influence of soil moisture on radon emanation is that of the thin film of water surrounding soil grains which slows radon atoms as they are ejected from the Controls on the radon emanation coefficient '' 1 OS c m h cu 1 O5 c c 0 d v~ Q' S Washington, DC Colorado Alabama Virginia New Cited by: Although indoor radon emerged as a public health issue, geologists soon became an integral part of the story because radon is a potential health problem with a geologic origin.

This colorless, odorless gas is a daughter element in the radioactive decay series of uranium, which is widespread in small quantities in rocks and sediments. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the U.S.

Geological Survey developed the radon potential map shown below using data collected from studies and surveys conducted in Connecticut. The map assigns each of the counties in Connecticut to one of three zones based on radon potential.

*Each zone designation reflects the average short-term radon. Visit to get more information about this book, to buy it in White SJ, The USGS/EPA state geologic radon potential booklets.

Radon Map Before You Read the Radon Map. Warning. This risk assessment radon map must be considered properly.

The different Zones of this map indicate average levels per county. So just because Zone 3 shows low potential don't assume that you must have a low radon level. The Indoor Radon Program, within the Environmental Management Branch, seeks to reduce the health risk from radon exposure by increasing awareness, identifying areas of high radon potential, and encouraging all Californians to test their homes for radon, fix their homes if they have a radon problem, and build new homes radon-resistant.C - RRNC Practices - An Industry Discussion (CERTI / NRPP ) - $ This course is comprised of two separate sessions recorded at the U.S.
