Re: ****** GLP RADIATION REPORTING CENTER ******
Excellent thread and thank you all for your concern and dedication to this very important and ongoing issue. Many of us do not have the equipment to test for this so we occasionally lurk. It is good piece of mind in these trying and untrustworthy times.

(light rain)

Surprised by the low reading. I'd anticipated a slightly high reading based on the light rain here and activity in Japan a few days ago.

Who's monitoring the water?
 Quoting: redlicorice

I thought about a response to this question for some time. The old answer was, "Your government. The EPA and your state health department." Except you and I know that under the present circumstances (if) any results from them are subject to purification for higher policy objectives.

That's why when this Fukushima problem broke I got a Geiger counter. I take my own daily readings. I share them here for those who might be interested. Up to you.

So, who's monitoring the water? Right now: If not you, then who? Anyone with the ability to personally acquire data, please contribute it. If you don't have the ability right now, consider acquiring it. You will be glad of the investment.

Edited to add:
This world is not going to become a less radio-active and polluted place in the future. Likely the opposite, especially given the ticking time bomb at Fukushima. Aggregate "Government" does not seem to be on a vector toward offering reliable and truthful data; more and more it seems the opposite.

It appears that the dissemination of truthful information is becoming increasingly dependent on ad-hoc groups of people who will contribute their own personally acquired data. Become one of them or be in the dark.

Slightly higher reading tonight. Within statistical reasonableness, but still interesting to have a nearly 3 CPM rise in one day. Usually the measurements vary more gradually.

Re: ****** GLP RADIATION REPORTING CENTER ******
How can I test? what is best method?
 Quoting: superdave

That depends on how deep you want to get into this and how deep your pockets are.

I'm in it at the 'entry level'. That is, I have a basic Geiger counter (CDV-700 model 6A) that was built during the cold-war era for civil defense purposes. There were several hundred thousand of them made. I got mine for about 60 bucks a few months ago, but the Fukushima matter has pushed the prices up somewhat. Such a meter gives you capability to measure background beta and gamma radiation, but not alpha.

Instead of spending 10 minutes each night listening on the earphone for clicks, I've written some (available free) software to do the job for me. It's available at sourceforge.net in project GeigerCount.

To go more sophisticated takes more $$. The next capability would be to measure alpha radiation. That's high-velocity helium nuclei expelled from the nucleus, very damaging, but absorbed within a few inches of the source. Expect to pay $400 plus for a machine to measure that. Wish I had one.

From there, you get into machines capable of doing elemental specro- chemical- analysis. If you want to detect specific elements, like cesium or iodine, that's what you need. Those go for $thousands.

My suggestion is to try to find a CDV-700 or similar model, cheap to start with. I got mine on Craigslist, believe it or not.

How to test involves acquiring periodic samples of whatever you're testing, and being committed to spending some time gathering the data. An 'open air' test, such as I report, is the average of ten minutes of data collected with the probe aimed at the open desert area in my back yard. That's really a short time. The incoming gamma radiation is so bursty that long accumulation times are needed to get a decent average. So, be committed to spending that amount of time plus setup time to getting the data.

Measuring more exact things like water or milk, etc., requires more elaborate testing. Generally one must take a liter of milk, let's say, and reduce it to powder. Then measure the radio-activity of the residual powder. And again, the things that will show up in milk are generally alpha emitters that would require an alpha-sensitive device to detect.

Then, if you want to measure amounts of specific elements, that's a whole different ballpark.

That's pretty elementary, and I'm not any sort of expert. Just an average guy with some technical ability trying to get a handle on things.

Re: ****** GLP RADIATION REPORTING CENTER ******
Despite lag time and fairly frequent periods offline, especially on weekends, the EPA site has been offering readings which I am assuming are accurate since they are 5 to 20 times higher than reported by any of the independent monitors or those on here. We have had 100 - 200 cpm for weeks an a regular basis according to their data, so they aren't hiding it, just providing it a bit late for protecting oneself from the spikes.
