Monitoring Gamma Radiation

The Neighborhood Environmental Watch Network, known as NEWNET, is able to give early indications of increases in radiation due to radioactive particulates in the air.

9/13/2001April BaldonadoThe 93.9 microR/hr gamma spike at 0147 Z 12 Sep resulted from a transmission error. The correct value was 17.1 microR/hr. Transmission 616 at 0502z had 47 reported errors, each with a bit missing. The 0147 gamma data had two bits missing. It was received as 7F7155 but should have been 7F7D55. Station InfoData Graph
9/13/2001April BaldonadoThe gamma spike on September 9th is unknown.Station InfoData Graph
9/5/2001April BaldonadoOn August 31, 2001 at 2332z the gamma spike was at 20.4 microR/h. Pressure dropped which indicates noise. On September 1st and 3rd all gamma spikes are unknown.Station InfoData Graph
8/31/2001April BaldonadoOn August 28, 2001 at 1817z the gamma data was at 21.5 microR/h. This spike is unknown.Station InfoData Graph
8/31/2001April BaldonadoAlmost all stations received bad data from about 0900 to 1300z, August 30, 2001. As a result there are spikes on many graphs; for some stations, the graphs look normal but there are rows of **** in the data listings and a number of errors (Errs) in the header listings.Station InfoData Graph
8/27/2001April BaldonadoOn August 24th at 1117z gamma was at 22.0 microR/h. This spike is unknown.Station InfoData Graph
8/27/2001April BaldonadoOn August 22nd at 1002z the gamma data was at 21.1 microR/h. Temperature dropped which is an indication of rain. On August 23rd at 0802z gamma was at 20.5 microR/h and this spike occurred because of rain.Station InfoData Graph
