Several studies in the past have shown radon to be present in many natural waters including mineral springs, hot springs, rivers, lakes, and rainwater. A compilation of tables of radon concentration in mineral and hot springs all over the world was published by Kuroda in 1953. Most of this radon comes from radium and uranium minerals which the springs flow over. The radon concentration in lakes is from two major souces [sic]. One source is dissolved radium and the other is the inflow of high radon concentration groundwaters [sic].
