dc.descriptionUranium-238 and other radioactive isotopes (radioisotopes) are present in small concentrations in all geologic materials. In a tiny fraction of these materials, such as uranium ore, radioisotope concentrations are greatly elevated. A much larger fraction of geologic materials contain slightly elevated concentrations of radioisotopes, but the radiation produced by these materials is far less than for uranium ore. The purpose of this brief report is to summarize the distribution, geologic association, and uranium concentration of naturally occurring radioactive materials (NORM) in Arizona, with emphasis on those materials that contain only slightly elevated concentrations of uranium.
