Current California Radiation Levels - EPA RadNet

Captured California Nuclear Radiation information For Today.

Due to the heightened interest in West Coast radiation monitoring data, I have curated this selected list of  EPA RadNet data including a snapshot of RadNet Map View which contains monitoring data and additional contextual information from EPA's Radiation Protection Programs.


These Radiation Measurements were capture in real-time for future comparison

Related Information: Update 1:30 am Japan time
The Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry's Nuclear and Industrial Safety Agency has released radiation levels for yesterday in the region of Tokyo Electric Power Corp's Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant.

Half a kilometre northwest of the No 3 reactor:
1.50pm - 3.484 millisieverts per hour
5:00pm - 5.055 millisieverts per hour
8:00pm - 3.611 millisieverts per hour

And 1.1km west of the No.3 reactor (west gate area):
8.10pm - 0.4476 millisieverts per hour
9pm - 0.4191 millisieverts per hour

The rise in radiation levels could be due to radioactive substances becoming mixed into the water that the Self Defence Forces etc have been spraying on No.3 reactor and escaping as the water is pumped out again, said Japan's public broadcaster NHK.
To put this into perspective, 100 millisieverts received over the course of a year is the lowest level at which any increased cancer risk is evident. A fatal dose is considered to be 5,000 millisieverts - in one hit.
