The October 1990 symposium provided a forum to present and evaluate basic research data on the physical and biological mechanisms associated with, or related to, the health effects of indoor radon. The meeting explored diverse methods and approaches, including statistical, biological, and biophysical modeling, to provide perspective on this current important public issue. The proceedings comprise not only the 70-odd papers presented at the symposium, but also the questions and answers following the platform presentations, as well as a transcript of a panel discussion, and the Sixth Annual H.M. Parker Lecture. No subject index. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
