By Samantha Angaiak: Alaskans working to develop radon database
Jennifer Athey, a geologist for Alaska’s Division of Geological and Geophysical Surveys, said the goal is to better map out where higher and lower levels of radon exist in the state.
“Right now there is very little information about radon in Alaska, we have some projects that were done in the ’80s and then we’ve been collecting a little information here and there, but really we need much much more information,” Athey said. “One of the problems with Alaska is that people are so concentrated along the rail belts and scattered into remote villages so it’s hard to say especially in those outlying areas as more construction develops what the radon potential is going to be.”
