  • For latest, see Nuclear News.
  • For radiation levels in Japan, Europe and elsewhere, check HERE.

Below is an overview of links where radiation data, analysis and sometimes interpretations are offered to the public.   Please contact me if you know additional sources.  Thank you.

 My DISCLAIMER applies to all my blog posts and pages. 
–  A word of CAUTION: – Comparing ‘dose rates’ is not necessarily a dependable way to gauge the full health dangers of fallout.  See also The Dose Deception.

– NOTE: some of these sites may be trying to sell Geiger Counters or other products and may have ulterior (“fear-mongering”) motives to boost their sales.  Goverment agencies, government-funded institutions, or nuclear-industry-aligned websites, on the other hand, may also have ulterior (“apathy-mongering”) motives to protect the nuclear industry.  Think for yourself.

List of U.S. Radioactivity DATA SOURCES:

For a quick investigation, I use these:

Other Networks to check include:

— — — More details, below: — — —

  • Data –> RADNET – hosted by the Environmental Protection Service (E.P.A.), is the U.S. government’s network of radiation monitors.  Compared to many other countries it is extremely limited in coverage.  While their post-Fukushima website,  http://www.epa.gov/radiation/, is an improvement, it is still incredibly user-unfriendly.  Also, it appears the US EPA is in complete denial of the surreal pathetic shape their monitoring network is in.  (Even the Inspector General basically agrees me on this).

!!–>  FOR an extensive exploration of the EPA’s various research tools, see my Nov 29, 2012 blog post: https://allegedlyapparent.wordpress.com/2012/11/29/epa-radnet-eureka-california-radiation/.  The summary of which are these 5 EPA data search tools; of which B & D are most useful to check on specific monitors:

  • RadNet for members. Until the Fukuchima nuclear disaster, the data wasn’t even readily available – you had to jump through hoops, like signing up to access the data, having to log in with a password every time.  You still can if you’d like to see if they’re not sharing everything: see How_to_Access_RadNet_Data.pdf.
  • Pacifica Radiation Stationhttp://PacRadStation.net/, graphs near-real-time dose rates in CPM.  This is a February 18, 2014 screenshot (click image or link for latest):   PacificaRadiationMonitor
  • Nuclear Emergency Tracking Center (NETChttp://www.netc.com/ ), of which this is a screenshot from Oct 30, 2013.  Click for most recent:

  • UC Berkeley Nuclear Engineering Air Monitoring Station – updates from air monitoring and rainwater samples, from the San Francisco Bay Area.   (Nov 1 2012 note:  This site was one of the best in 2011, but sadly entrenched in nuclear industry cover-up efforts, they unfortunately scaled down (or outright quit) rather than expanded their monitoring and data sharing in 2012.  Contact them for a fresh experience of disappointment.  Please leave a comment if they’ve returned from the dark side.)

  • For Nevada & Utah:  The Community Environmental Monitoring Program (CEMP) is a network of 29 monitoring stations located in communities surrounding and downwind of the Nevada National Security Site (NNSS), formerly the Nevada Test Site (NTS), that monitor the airborne environment for manmade radioactivity.  Nov 1, 2012 screenshot of this site showing monitor sites:

To rub in how bad the EPA’s RadNet really is, see my blogpost, ‘A Comparison of the radiation network of the United States vs. Belgium.  Summary: “Depending on how you gauge it, Belgium is 27 times, 52 times, or 530 times better equipped for radiation monitoring than the United States of America.”

  12. Matt Hulstrunk says:

    Gamma energy range 10 typically has the lowest cpm of all the ranges.

    Beta is really the best but the EPA lost control of it when the levels climbed to far up.

    Gamma energy range 2 is the most sensitive right now. The ability to let the lower readings “float” and not hit a zero point is why gamma is still shown.

    One more point…when Radnets beta hits zero, a lot of times at the filter change outs that happen on Monday and Thursday, that value may have registered below zero because the graphs output range was set a tad too low. Sorta a mute point now that most beta has been toggled off.
