Abstract The report gives results of statewide mapping of Florida soil radon potentials. Statewide maps identify Florida regions with different levels of soil radon potential. The maps were developed from state soil maps and surface geology maps, which divided the state into 3,919 regions with unique combinations of soil and geologic properties. The potentials of the soil profiles in each region to contribute to indoor radon levels were calculated and used to classify each map region into one of the seven tiers of radon potential. The maps were validated by comparisons with more than 1,000 radon flux measurements and with 9,038 indoor radon measurements from three data sets. The comparisons showed consistency between the measurements and the radon potential maps, with approximately the expected numbers of outlier points.
