A system to provide continuous monitoring for atmospheric concentrations of noble gases and tritium has been operated in the Nevada Test Site vicinity since 1972. The field sampling system was designed to utilize the analytical capabilities at the Environmental Protection Agency's Environmental Monitoring and Support Laboratory in Las Vegas. This report describes the noble gas system which provides sample collection and analysis for radiokrypton, radioxenon, and tritium in the form of methane, with detection capabilities, at the time of count, of about 2 picocuries per cubic metre.
