Contents Notes
"Uranium mill tailing piles can expose the population to radiation by several pathways. The author believes the air pathway to be the most important and radon-222 to be the principal nuclide. The report illustrates the effects of tailings piles on a variety of local and regional populations, assesses the effects of the tailings on distant populations, and compares EPA methods and results with assessments by others."--Abstract.
