SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The MARSSIM provides information on 
planning, conducting, evaluating, and documenting environmental 
radiological surveys of surface soils and building surfaces for 
demonstrating compliance with regulations. The following corrections, 
dated June 2001, were made to Revision 1 of the MARSSIM by the multi-
agency MARSSIM workgroup. The June 2001 corrected pages are also 
available on the Internet at http://www.epa.gov/radiation/marssim.
    1. On page v of the Table of Contents, the August 2000 date was 
removed from the header of the Errata and Addenda page to facilitate 
incorporation of future modifications. Pages xi, xii, and xv were 
corrected to correspond to the correct titles for Appendix C, Section 
.11 and Table H-3 respectively. Page xxviii was also updated to include 
these June 2001 corrections to the list of Errata and Addenda.
    2. On page xxiii, the Abbreviations page, the abbreviation DARA 
(Department of the Army Radioactive

[[Page 34728]]

Material Authorization) was updated to ARA (Army Radiation 
Authorization). Also, on page C-19, the list of Army Regulations was 
updated by deleting AR 40-14 and AR 385-11 and adding AR 11-9 (The Army 
Radiation Safety Program).
    3. On page Roadmap-8, the first bullet included an equation without 
an equal sign. The equation was corrected to include the equal sign.
    4. On page 4-24, the second line of the second paragraph under 
Section 4.8.3.2 was missing a modifier. The word ``that'' was added to 
clarify the meaning of the sentence.
    5. On page 5-12, the second line of the second paragraph under 
Section 5.3.3.3 included a typographical error. A space was added 
between ``samples'' and ``of.''

Section 6.5.1.3 was edited for clarification. The word ``fluence'' was 
added following ``total particle.''
    7. On page 6-30, the Greek letter epsilon character in equations 6-
3 and 6-4 printed incorrectly. This misprint was corrected.
    8. On page 6-37, the example data were modified to reflect the 
August 2000 Errata and Addenda correction of the conversion factor for 
converting Bq/m\2\ to dpm/100 cm\2\.
    9. On page 8-19, the example data were modified to reflect the 
August 2000 Errata and Addenda correction of the conversion factor for 
converting Bq/m\2\ to dpm/100 cm\2\.
