Title: Comparative levels of environmental radioactivity in Utah from industry and fallout. A progress report of radioecological investigations of airborne radioactivity in the Utah environment, July 1, 1972--June 30, 1973. [July 1972 through June 1973]

Abstract

Radioactivity in air, vegetation, soil, and wild animals in Utah was determined during July 1972 through June 1973, and results are presented. Methods for continuous measurement of the daughter products of radon and thoron were developed and used for calculations of the integrated dose to the lungs of humans.
