dc.descriptionRadon is a colorless, odorless gas produced by the radioactive decay of uranium. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has determined that indoor radon at elevated levels is a significant health risk to humans. Indoor-radon levels generally correlate with uranium concentration in underlying rocks, and some areas of Arizona are known to have elevated levels of uranium. This study is part of an ongoing evaluation of potential radon hazards in Arizona by the Arizona Geological Survey and the Arizona Radiation Regulatory Agency. This report presents results of a study of the distribution of uranium in upper Cenozoic sediments of the Safford and Duncan basins and describes the nature of a notable uranium anomaly in the area of the 111 Ranch, near Safford.
