The report documents a workshop on radon potential mapping, in Gainesville, FL, on April 20, 1990. The workshop, part of the Florida Radon Research Program (FRRP), was designed to identify and discuss in an expert forum the technical issues associated with radon potential characterization of Florida lands. (NOTE: The FRRP is aimed at developing radon-related building construction standards for Florida.) If developed, radon potential maps would be used to identify geographic areas with greatest potential for indoor radon problems so that appropriate precautions, specified by related building construction standards, could be taken. Existing radon maps for Florida and other states and regions were reviewed, and their uses of aeroradiometric, geological, indoor radon, and other data were identified.
