On the cover: Etched-track detector with the record of uranium from a neutron-irradiated, evaporated droplet. This method allows leached alpha-recoil atoms of 235U to be sensitively measured as an analogue to leaching of 210Pb that is implanted in glass from the decay of 222Rn progeny. See article by Fleischer and Doremus on page 110 for more information. Photograph provided courtesy of the American Chemical Society, from Analytical Chemistry 48: 642; 1976.
