Summary

These data are comprised of measurements of gross alpha activity, gross beta activity, and radionuclide activities (isotopic U, isotopic Th, Ra-226) in small rodent bodies. Samples were collected at non-mining and U breccia pipe mining sites in various production stages, in the Grand Canyon watershed.

Purpose

These data were obtained to assess biota exposures to radionuclides, and perform dose assessments, as a result of U mining in the Grand Canyon watershed. Results are reflective of site conditions at the time of collection.
