The report discusses the development of a radon protection map to show from soil and geologic features the areas of Florida that require different levels of radon protection for large building construction. The map utilized 3,919 geographic regions defined by digital intersection of soil maps with surface geology maps. Regional radon distributions were modeled from radon source and transport properties. Confidence limits for the regional radon distributions were calculated from variations in the regional radon source and transport properties. Separate model analyses estimated the effectiveness of different building construction features in reducing radon entry.
