The proceedings, in four volumes, document the 1991 International Symposium on Radon and Radon Reduction Technology, held in Philadelphia, PA, April 2-5, 1991. In all, 65 oral papers (including the welcome address, the lead address, and the keynote address), 14 panel session papers, and 40 poster papers were presented. The papers addressed a wide range of radon-related topics. This volume contains government programs and policies, health studies, health risk communication, measurement methods, radon reduction methods in existing houses, radon transport, and entry dynamics. The symposium speakers included EPA personnel, representatives from federal and state environmental/health agencies, research and development groups, academic and medical personnel, manufacturers of testing equipment, and those in the construction and real estate industries. Attendees represented 14 countries other than the U.S. The international papers provided updates on government policies, results of surveys, and technological developments in radon and radon reduction technology.
