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.

8/28/1998Larry SandersThe station was loaded with NEWNET version R35 software on 8/27/98 at 16:30Z. This software provides improved accuracy for radiation measurements in the low range. The station was re-wired with a door sensor and new voltage divider for the radiation sensor. The existing PIC battery was reading 305 volts, it was not replaced. A new 12volt battery was installed at the station. Currently, this station only has a radiation sensor. EPA will install meteorological sensors later. All meteorological inputs will remain shorted until the meteorological sensors are installed.Station InfoData Graph
