swiss radiation monitoring:
Through the use of certain technologies – e. g. power supply network and mobile communication – electric, magnetic and electromagnetic fields are generated in man´s environment. These fields can be described by their strength (amplitude), their oscillation (wave length) and number of oscillations (frequency). One differentiates high-frequency and low-frequency fields, they are part – as is optical radiation – of non-ionising radiation. In contrast to ionising radiation – e. g. X-rays – the energy of this radiation is not sufficient for charging atoms and molecules electrically – for ionising them. Nevertheless can this type of irradiation have impacts on health. Different concepts serve to protect against immediate hazards and as precaution.
Thank you for your interest in the FLEXPART products for Fukushima. The Forecast system is no longer running.
We have discontinued our Flexpart forecast of the atmospheric dispersal of radionucleides from Fukushima. This due to the fact that we do not have access to reliable release rates reflecting the current situation at the plant to be used as input to our simulations. It is likely that the release of radioactive material is significantly reduced compared to the initial period, and that levels no longer pose a health risk at distance from the plant.
We thank you for your interest in our FLEXPART products.

As reported in “High radiation detected in L.A. rain” at http://www.enviroreporter.com/2015/01/high-radiation-detected-in-l-a-rain/
detects hot rain in the western Los Angeles basin multiple times with the highest registering 3.3 times background levels. The California Highway Patrol considers any substance radiating more than three times background hot enough to trip its Hazardous Materials protocols. Those emergency measures include suiting up personnel in impermeable outfits with ventilators.
Those precautions were not evident in the greater Los Angeles as the storm drenched thousands of people caught unawares of the impending storm. High levels of beta radiation in rain are especially of concern when children and pregnant women are exposed to the hot water which can cause blood cancers, including leukemia, and a host of ailments introduced courtesy of the Atomic Age.
U.S. Radiation Report 23 Nov 2014
U.S. Environmental Protection Agency RadNet radiation monitors have detected renewed surges in air readings of dangerous beta radiation across the country. Over a dozen metropolitan test sites registered four-month highs.
Impacted cities include San Diego, Bakersfield, Phoenix, Amarillo, Montgomery and Madison.
Some of these sites recorded beta readings literally going off the chart at 1,000 total beta counts per minute (CPM). EnviroReporter.com and others including experts and manufacturers, consider 100 CPM to be an alarm trigger. Many American cities surpassed this threshold in this latest reporting period.
U.S. Radiation Report 2 September 2014
Following report available with hot links at http://www.enviroreporter.com/radnet-air-monitoring
40 out of 124 beta monitors are functional as of this date out of the 124 areas covered, a drop of 10 percent. Several significant beta stations have gone offline while a couple of crucial ones are sputtering to life.
There is a noticeable sharp beta radiation trend upwards at a number of stations across the country but not as bad as the last reporting period. The following three-week summation allows for a larger data set to apprise than the last weekly report… SEE MORE AT ABOVE LINK
U.S. Radiation Report 6 August 2014
[Check out the August 7, 2014 EnviroReporter.com article “U.S. air radiation surges higher” that explains these readings in further detail at http://www.enviroreporter.com/2014/08/u-s-air-radiation-surges-higher/
U.S. EPA’s 44 functioning beta radiation monitors out of 123 sites nationwide that the agency monitors for beta and gamma air radiation, show that a strong wave of radiation is hitting the country with a significant number of sites hitting new highs over the last four months.
Beta radiation includes cesium-137 and strontium-90, two man-made radioisotopes that continue to spew out of the triple meltdowns at Fukushima Dai-ichi, Japan which continue unabated since March 11, 2011.
Four-month highs in beta radiation have been detected in Hartford CT, Washington D.C., Fort Wayne IN, Lincoln NE, Toledo OH, Corvalis OR, Amarillo TX and Madison WI.
These highs exceed triple background radiation which, according to Nuclear Regulatory Commission documents, exceed the California Highway Patrol’s tripwire level for a hazardous materials situation.
In some cases, the new highs are over a dozen times background indicating air that could be dangerous especially to children and pregnant women.
