Environmental Radiation Data is compiled and distributed quarterly by the Office of Radiation Programs' Eastern Environmental Radiation Facility, Montgomery, Alabama. Sampling locations are selected to provide optimal population coverage while functioning to monitor fallout from nuclear device and other forms of radioactive contamination of the environment. The radiation analyses performed on these samples include gross alpha and gross beta levels, gamma analyses for fission products, and specific analyses for uranium, plutonium, strontium, iodine, radium, krypton, and tritium. This monitoring effort also serves to provide ancillary information on releases into the environment from stationary sources such as nuclear power reactors, fuel fabrication and reprocessing plants and natural background levels.
