Abstract
The exposure of man to natural radiation sources in the U.S. has been estimated by considering the distribution of the population with respect to certain factors, principally geology and elevation, which influence exposure to terrestrial and cosmic radiation. The average population elevation of the U.S. was determined to be approximately 700 ft., and the average cosmic ray dose equivalent was estimated to be 44 mrem/yr.
