Description

  • Content Description: The Aerial Radiological Measuring System (ARMS) was used to survey the Monticello Nuclear Generating Plant and surrounding area during Aug. 1970. The survey measured terrestrial background gamma radiation. A high-sensitivity detection system collected gamma spectral and gross-count data. The data were then computer processed into a map of a 625 sq. mile area showing isoexposure contours 3 ft above the ground. Results indicated the presence of isotopes normally found in the background radiation throughout the United States. (auth)
