Berkeley Makes Environmental Radiation Levels Public

8/18/2014; 2 minutes

A team of scientists led by Kai Vetter, UC Berkeley professor-in-residence of nuclear engineering, seeks to provide online access to a wealth of information on environmental radiation levels to help demystify an often misunderstood subject. Called RadWatch, the project presents results of radiation testing from a wide range of samples, such as milk from California cows, fish and soil. But the latest development is the installation of a new and automated air sampling system so that a constant stream of data from highly sensitive air monitors will be posted online for the public to see.
