This report presents the radioanalytical results on water samples obtained from approximately 140 hot springs and shallow wells in eight western states. Sample locations were selected upon current or potential use as a geothermal heat source. Specific nuclide analyses were completed for radium-226, uranium-234, uranium-238, thorium-230, thorium-232, and dissolved radon-222. Accompanying these results is a brief overview of trends and rough correlations of radiochemical data with other inorganic data from previous studies.
