  • Improvement of the life cycle assessment methodology for dwellings

    The aim of this thesis is to improve the environmental life cycle assessment methodology for buildings by incorporating damage to the health of occupants of emissions from building materials and local traffic. It also intends to determine the overall impact reduction by building environmentally improved dwellings. This reduction is referred to as ...

  • The Natural Radiation Environment VII

    The Natural Radiation Environment Symposium (NRE VII), the Seventh in the NRE series, which commenced forty years ago in 1963 at Rice University Texas, was held in Rhodes (Greece) in May 2002. During the intervening four decades the research work presented at these NRE Symposia has contributed to a deeper understanding of natural radiation and in ...

  • Radon: Prevalence, Measurements, Health Risks, and Control

    Radon was recognized as a potential public health threat in the United States more than 30 years ago. To understand and effectively deal with radon, one needs to understand the physics of radon, its health effects, measurement techniques and protocols, the extent of its occurrence in the United States, mitigation principles and practices, and ...

  • Design and Protocol for Monitoring Indoor Air Quality

    Case studies and technical papers describe indoor air investigations in residential and commercial buildings, test protocol, and monitoring techniques. Pollutants such as radon, formaldehyde, and volatile organic compounds are ...

  • Understanding Radioactive Aerosols and Their Measurement

    This book is an introduction to radioactivity and aerosols for the scientifically literate reader with little or no previous exposure to either of these subjects. It provides a step-by-step introduction to radioactive aerosols from the physical science perspective, with coverage of such topics as indoor radon decay products, radioactive ...

  • Arrays and Array Methods in Global Seismology

    In recent years, the increased availability and fidelity of broadband seismic instruments have effectively narrowed the gap between exploration and global seismic applications. Global seismologists are now able to take advantage of high-resolution, often exploration-based, tools to examine rock properties tens to hundreds of kilometers below ...

  • Radon in Rental Housing: Legal and Policy Strategies for Reducing Health Risks Report

    The radon outreach and education programs of EPA, state and local government agencies, and private organizations have helped to increase greatly public awareness of this environmental health hazard. In the residential context, this work has focused almost exclusively on promoting radon testing and mitigation in single family, owner-occupied homes. ...

  • State Radon Legislation - Issues and Options Report

    Radon exposure poses a threat to health when the gas enters buildings through cracks, other openings in the foundation, or in some other manner, and is trapped inside at high concentrations. EPA estimates that six million homes in the United States contain high radon levels. The potential for high indoor radon is greater in areas with certain ...

  • An Evaluation of Strategies for Promoting Effective Radon Mitigation

    This study is the first to evaluate the effectiveness of the awareness campaign to promote appropriate protective responses to radon exposure. The report includes implications of this campaign for public policy concerning radon and related ...
