I have looked at the website map and have the following comments:
  1. There should be a stipulation that these pages should convey information rapidly and not be a lot of slow moving glitter.
  2. 1) There are many more related links may of which are on my CAP Catalogue web pages.
  3. 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:
    1. The ORR Annual Site Environmental Report for 1998, DOE/ORO-2091 This is one of a series of reports dating back to 1985 or earlier (See 3.). Each report contains a bibliography of supporting environmental reports for that year. See
