Radiation Monitoring

            Ever wonder what your ambient radiation levels are? I know you have. With the nuclear trouble in Japan and unreported nuclear testing around the world, it would be nice to be able to see if there is any elevated nuclear radiation around the country. Radiation Network is a website that incorporates a network of radiation monitors from all over the country and the rest of the world in real time.

Keep in mind that elevated doesn’t necessarily mean dangerous. Also, there are many more radiation monitors around the country, especially in larger cities, so this is not a comprehensive list by any means. In fact, every so often we get radiation spikes in a big city and Homeland Security freaks out (as they well should).
