Medical Radiation Exposure of the U.S. Population Greatly Increased Since the Early 1980s
Background radiation, which in 2006 contributed fully half of the total exposure, comes from natural radiation in soil and rocks, radon gas which seeps
into homes and other buildings, plus radiation from space and radiation sources that are found naturally within the human body.
Other small contr...

UCSB scientists document fate of huge oil slicks from seeps at coal oil point
(Santa Barbara, Calif.) Twenty years ago, the oil tanker Exxon Valdez was exiting Alaska's Prince William Sound when it struck a reef in the middle of the night. What happened next is considered one of the nation's worst environmental disasters: 10.8 million gallons of crude oil spilled into the...
