Abstract This report describes our current knowledge of the distribution of natural radioactivity in rocks, groundwater and soils of the United Kingdom. Elements of interest include Uranium (U), Thorium (Th) and Potassium (K), along with radon (Rn) and radium (Ra) in groundwater. This information is then used to describe the likely background conditions at each of the U.K.’s nuclear sites, particularly in relation to the geology.
