The CURA publications library is currently being digitized by the University of Minnesota Digital Conservancy. When the project is complete, the entire CURA publications library will be online and fully searchable. Unfortunately, during this process we are not able to honor individual requests for publications . Additionally, we no longer have physical copies of publications to send out.

New publications are digitized daily and the publications catalog on the CURA website is not automatically updated with links to scanned copies, so please search the CURA collection at the Digital Conservancy for the publications you are looking for:

Site Study of Soil Characteristics and Soil Gas Radon in Rochester, Minnesota.

Lively, Richard, Daniel Steck, and Bruce Brasaemle.

Two residential neighborhoods were studied in 1990 to compare radon in the soil with indoor radon levels in sixty-five homes. Positive correlations were found. The topographically highest area also had the highest radon levels in soil and in homes. This type of study could be used to predict indoor radon problems before construction of homes is begun.
