Series Description: This record series contains results of air sample analyses from buildings 9201-4 and 9201-5. The information includes the number of samples taken each month, in units of concentration in milligrams/cubic meter (mg/m3) of mercury in air. The results are reported by giving the percentage of samples falling into concentration ranges (with intervals of 0.1 mg/m3) between <0.1 and >1.0 mg/m3. Computer printouts and charts of readings of monitors placed in the ventilation system of buildings 9201-4 and 9201-5 are included along with blueprints of the monitoring system. The health physics and Y-12 engineering divisions performed the air sampling and analyses that include fan number, date of sample, location, and concentrations.
