SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

The MARSSIM provides information on planning, conducting, evaluating, and documenting environmental radiological surveys of surface soils and building surfaces for demonstrating compliance with regulations. The following corrections, dated June 2001, were made to Revision 1 of the MARSSIM by the multi-agency MARSSIM workgroup. The June 2001 corrected pages are also available on the Internet at http://www.epa.gov/​radiation/​marssim.

1. On page v of the Table of Contents, the August 2000 date was removed from the header of the Errata and Addenda page to facilitate incorporation of future modifications. Pages xi, xii, and xv were corrected to correspond to the correct titles for Appendix C, Section .11 and Table H-3 respectively. Page xxviii was also updated to include these June 2001 corrections to the list of Errata and Addenda.

2. On page xxiii, the Abbreviations page, the abbreviation DARA (Department of the Army Radioactive Start Printed Page 34728Material Authorization) was updated to ARA (Army Radiation Authorization). Also, on page C-19, the list of Army Regulations was updated by deleting AR 40-14 and AR 385-11 and adding AR 11-9 (The Army Radiation Safety Program).

3. On page Roadmap-8, the first bullet included an equation without an equal sign. The equation was corrected to include the equal sign.

4. On page 4-24, the second line of the second paragraph under Section 4.8.3.2 was missing a modifier. The word “that” was added to clarify the meaning of the sentence.

5. On page 5-12, the second line of the second paragraph under Section 5.3.3.3 included a typographical error. A space was added between “samples” and “of.”

6. On page 6-16, the second line of the last paragraph under Section 6.5.1.3 was edited for clarification. The word “fluence” was added following “total particle.”

7. On page 6-30, the Greek letter epsilon character in equations 6-3 and 6-4 printed incorrectly. This misprint was corrected.

8. On page 6-37, the example data were modified to reflect the August 2000 Errata and Addenda correction of the conversion factor for converting Bq/m2 to dpm/100 cm2.

9. On page 8-19, the example data were modified to reflect the August 2000 Errata and Addenda correction of the conversion factor for converting Bq/m2 to dpm/100 cm2.

10. On page 8-23, text was added to the first and third paragraphs to clarify the definition and use of the Greek letter delta (lower case delta) in equation 8-2 on that page.
