Naturally Occurring Radioactive Materials (NORM

Naturally Occurring Radioactive Materials (NORM) Naturally occurring radioactive materials exist in the earth's crust as a result of the decay of heavy elements produced by cosmic processes. In their natural state they are not considered waste. NORM waste is produced when activities including mining and the processing of minerals and

Naturally occurring radioactive material

Naturally Occurring Radioactive Materials (NORM) and Technologically Enhanced Naturally Occurring Radioactive Materials (TENORM) consist of materials, usually industrial wastes or by-products enriched with radioactive elements found in the environment, such as uranium, thorium and potassium and any of their decay products, such as radium and radon.

Radiological protection in North American naturally

Most naturally occurring radioactive material (NORM) contains radionuclides from the so-called long-lived 'primordial' decay chains, resulting from the decay of U-238, U-235, Th-232, and other long-lived radionuclides, such as K-40. All soils and rocks are naturally radioactive, and hence all ores are also radioactive.
