How can we ensure that the environmental and public health impacts of uranium mining are minimized? Two articles in the July issue of Health Physics consider different aspects of this question. Kelsey Moore Minter and her colleagues have modeled the doses to rodents from uranium mining in the Grand Canyon area in their article, "Biota Dose Assessment of Small Rodents Sampled Near Breccia Pipe Uranium Mines in the Grand Canyon Watershed." Steven Brown describes the health physics and monitoring programs required to measure and control radiological doses to workers at in situ recovery uranium facilities in his article, "Occupational Radiation Protection Aspects of Alkaline Leach Uranium in Situ Recovery (ISR) Facilities in the United States." Be sure to check out these and the eight other articles in the July issue.
