Gross, E.L., 2017, PaRadonGW.shp - Evaluation of Radon Occurrence in Groundwater from 16 Geologic Units in Pennsylvania, 1986–2015, with Application to Potential Radon Exposure from Groundwater and Indoor Air: U.S. Geological Survey data release, https://doi.org/10.5066/F7PR7T74.

Summary

This dataset documents results from 1,041 groundwater samples collected during 1986‒2015 from 16 geologic units in Pennsylvania associated with 25 or more groundwater samples with activities or concentrations of radon-222. Radon-222 is hereafter referred to as “radon.” These 16 geologic units were evaluated in an effort to identify variations in radon concentrations and to classify potential radon exposure from groundwater and indoor air. This dataset was developed for the Pennsylvania Environmental Public Health Tracking (PAEPHT) Program to describe the spatial distribution of radon concentrations in groundwater in Pennsylvania and to illustrate data gaps that exist throughout the State. The PAEPHT Program is part of the National [...]

Purpose

The purpose of this dataset is to document methods, statistical results, and limitations from a study evaluating radon occurrence in groundwater from 16 geologic units in Pennsylvania, 1986-2015, that has application to potential radon exposure from groundwater and indoor air [https://pubs.er.usgs.gov/publication/sir20175018; https://doi.org/10.3133/sir20175018] in a statewide spatial dataset and metadata.
