It must primarily involve the assessment of exposure from radon and its decay products of short-term as the dominant natural sources of ionizing radiation and also for specific situations, as well as from other sources: external field of gamma radiation from radionuclides present in building materials, internal radiation from thoron (Rn-220) and its decay products.
Included in these changes are: new code architecture; incorporation of numerical solvers for the calculation of radioactive decay chains (including the in-growth of decay products during air transport and ground surface deposition); enhanced error messages; updated online help and a utility for migrating version 3 datasets, wind files and population files to version 4.
Radon and its decay products compose most of ionizing radiation (Girgzdys, Ulevicius 1985; Gesell 1983).

These darkened spherical areas in minerals are due to damage induced by alpha particles from radioactive decay products of uranium and thorium, most notably from polonium.
