CitationHarris, R.C., Trapp, R.A., 1994, Comprehensive bibliography of uranium and radon in Arizona. Arizona Geological Survey Open File report, OFR-94-25, 50 p.
DescriptionRadon gas, which is produced by the radioactive decay of uranium, can accumulate in homes to levels that are considered hazardous by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. Hazardous indoor-radon levels are most common in areas where underlying rock and soil contain unusually high levels of uranium. Anomalous uranium levels are present at scattered locations in Arizona. Many of these localities are associated with uranium mines but others are not and may be inconspicuous. Homes or buildings that are built on such areas are at risk for having hazardous levels of indoor radon gas. This bibliography is intended to help the user in locating studies of uranium and radon in Arizona that could be useful in estimating the probability of high uranium levels in geologic materials. This knowledge may help home builders and others in avoiding radon gas and may assist scientists and those engaged in uranium exploration. ( 50 pages)
