Your Radiation This Week – September 10, 2022 

Welcome to old hands and newbies alike.


I’ve written about radiation topics for 50 years and published my thoughts and current RadNet data for 22 years.


All data is collected, checked and verified by a federal government agency, RadNet,


Any errors or omissions are my own.


This paper deals with human death and illness and is not recommended for children. If you are over 18 years of age, you are on your own.

This set of alpha tracks (magnified 500 times) occurred over a 48-hour period” (Robert Del Tredici, At Work in the Fields of the Bomb [1987], plate 39). 19

Fires in the forests have also lead to the increases of radioactivity.”

“In 1992, in the vicinity of the exclusion zone, radiation due to forest fires reached 20 Bq.m-3 for beta emitters and 70 mBq.m-3 from plutonium isotopes. Monitoring stations far from these zones registered some peaks of radioactivity.”
