The report gives results of laboratory work by the University of Florida in support of the Foundation Fill Data Base project of the Foundation Fill Materials Specifications Task Area of the Florida Radon Research Program (FRRP). Work included determination of radon concentrations in soil gas samples and physical and radiological characterization of soil/fill samples to provide data for further use in modeling radon production, transport, and entry. The study reported here emphasizes sites as prepared for construction. Twenty-three sites were samples. Two sites were selected in each of 11 regions designated to represent population centers covering the range of geographic, topographic, and geological features in Florida. Also included was a Brooksville school construction site being studied in another FRRP project.
