List of Radiation Radioactive Nuclear Fallout Monitoring Websites
Want to get your own data about radiation (nuclear fallout). There are several official and independent monitoring sites.
blog post will be continually updated. 41th update: September 12th
2011. Please help to identify new radiation monitoring sites. Thank you.
Simple Radiation Dose Calculator: allows to estimate exposer to radiation, a more detailed one can be found at EPA (USA)
Network, USA: independent, monitors currently 14 locations in the USA –
three around Seattle, one in California, update every minute
USA, EPA, official monitoring sites: Now with a new interactive site to view the collected data: [link to www.epa.gov]
You can also create an user account to view data from all their 100 air
radiation monitoring stations across the US. Now also with a customer
