Series Description: This record series contains laboratory measurements with a chart (several pages) of measurements of various nuclides to which workers were exposed. The chart provides the quantity of nuclide and the type of analysis used to determine the amount of exposure. Types of analysis include: thermoluminescent dosimetry (TLD), urinalysis, or calorimetric. Urinalysis was used to determine exposure to uranium and mercury. TLD was used to determine beta/gamma dosage and exposure to radioactive magnesium, lithium deuteride, lithium hydride, and thorium. Calorimetry was used to determine airborne exposure to thorium.
