- Drag the map and zoom in, then click through for some independent monitors, found through http://www.uradmonitor.com/
In addition to national, regional and independent monitoring sites and networks (see Current Radiation Monitors), several international organizations run their own global monitoring networks. Unfortunately, they’re not particularly making it easy to for the general public to access their data in near-real-time. Here’s a few of ‘m that may still be useful:
- –> WNA – World Nuclear Association (lists nearly all nuclear power stations, with extra data and Google-powered maps)
NUCTRANS[2014 Note: This site was taken down some time after Fukushima]– Nuclear Transparancy in the Asia Pacific – an initiative of the Council for Security Cooperation in the Asia Pacific (CSCAP) has MAPS of nuclear reactor sites[2014 Note: This site was taken down some time after Fukushima] in Asia (India, China, Mongolia, Russia, Japan, Korea, Taiwan, Australia – CLICK image below right), produces various reports, and gathers monitoring information:
CSCAP – Nuclear Transparency – map with reactors and more.
‘National Security Newswire’[2014 Note: This site was taken down some time after Fukushima] of the (Nuclear Threat Initiative)
- The Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty Organization (CTBTO http://www.ctbto.org). All CTBTO stations (seismic, radionuclide monitors, etc.) are listed at http://www.ctbto.org/verification-regime/station-profiles/ This system is so sensitive that it can determine a nuclear bomb test happened and inform member states within just hours.
The CTBTO detected fallout from Fukushima all over the world, see Journal of Environmental Radioactivity.
- The World Radiation Monitoring Center (WRMC), keeps a centralized archive of all measurements performed by the Baseline Surface Radiation Network (BSRN), which in turn is a project of the Radiation Panel from the Global Energy and Water Cycle Experiment GEWEX, under the umbrella of the World Climate Research Programme (WCRP), studying the relation between the Earth’s surface radiation and climate change. The BSRN’s stations supposedly report every 3 minutes “from different climate zones” and contribute to the Global Atmospheric Watch (GAW).
