Broad-leafed evergreen (wax myrtle, laurel oak, and Carolina laurelcherry) samples are collected quarterly on and around the perimeter of the SRS for tritium and gamma analysis. The sampling locations include perimeter sites, sites at a 25-mile radius of SRS, sites within a 50-mile radius of SRS, and background locations throughout South Carolina.
