The report gives results of soil analysis laboratory work by the University of Florida in support of the Florida Radon Research Program (FRRP). Work included textural classification, and particle size, moisture, Radium-226, and emanation coefficient determinations. During the period, 124 samples representing 45 sites were submitted. Conclusions from this work include: North Florida observations support earlier conclusions that a large proportion of the fill actually used in Florida construction is of a low radium content, and elevated radium concentrations do occur in some soil and fill samples in actual house constructions.
