    Title: Decay Series
    Type: Text Slide
    Content:

    • Radioactive parent decays to a "daughter" which may also be radioactive, therefore, is also simultaneously decaying.
    • Resulting exposure is to the combination of both decays (and possibly additional daughters).
    • Radon daughters are an important example of series decay exposure in uranium mines and basements.
