GIS Proximity Modeling to Prioritize Sampling for Radon in Well Water
Track: Public Health
Authors: Orville Bignall
Characterization of acute public health risks using GIS tools plays a key role for defensible decision-making and to implement timely control measures. Radon as a public cancer health risk must be further researched to be clearly understood and documented. This research can benefit from analyses using temporal and spatial domains since Radon fluctuates in the environment. GIS proximity modeling was successfully used to select the number of wells to be sampled using indoor Radon and well data.
