I have looked at the website map and have the following comments:
- There should be a stipulation that these pages should convey information
rapidly and not be a lot of slow moving glitter.
- 1) There are many more related links may of which are on my CAP Catalogue
- I would add quite a bit more on off-site data sources, summaries and
abstracts that would provide a collection of background information. Some
of the sources should be excerpted. Some references follow:
- The ORR Annual Site Environmental Report for 1998, DOE/ORO-2091

Each report contains a bibliography of supporting environmental reports for

sampling for Mercury et al.
