Radon Environmental’s scientific and geologic staff has developed a radon hazard potential map of Canada similar to the one developed by the US Geological Survey. National and provincial maps are now availiable online for purchase.
Geological units form the basic framework for the radon potential map. Geology is an important factor in determining the source and potential distribution of radon. GIS processing was used to evaluate each rock unit contained in the geology dataset with respect to its US Radon Potential Classification, its uranium geochemistry and its radiometric geophysical response. These three major parameters were then used to classify the Canadian landmass.
The Radon Atlas of Canada will be published by Radon Environmental in 2013. It contains additional data layers including: population density, isolated population centres such as First Nations Reserves and uranium-thorium mineral occurrences to provide detailed information about potential radon risk areas of Canada.
