DISCLAIMER — In the wake of the March 11, 2011 Fukushima Nuclear Disaster, I sought to understand the scientific units radiation measurements are reported in, how to put the reports into context, as well as find out how much radiation is present wherever a cloud of radioactive particles may be blowing. Regardless of what happens, this website got started as a summary of what I found, so anyone [by clicking on it] can now easily :
- >> Check ‘CURRENT RADIATION LEVELS‘WORLDWIDE << for easy access to local radioactivity monitors from all over, including Japan, USA, Europe, etc.
- Check ‘Radiation Units’ for clarification of the various scientific units in use for radioactivity aspects, and learn how to convert one to another.
- Check ‘Radiation Exposure Effects’ to see an overview of the potential health effects of different gamma ray radiation exposures, to put measurements into context.* If you spot inaccuracies, PLEASE leave a comment. I’ll fix it asap.
