NRC TLD direct radiation monitoring network. Progress report, October 1997--December 1997

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

This is the final report of the US Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) Direct Radiation Monitoring Network, covering the fourth quarter of 1997. The Network was operated by the NRC in cooperation with participating states to provide continuous measurement of the ambient radiation levels around licensed NRC facilities, primarily power reactors. Ambient radiation levels result from naturally occurring radionuclides present in the soil, cosmic radiation constantly bombarding the earth from outer space, and the contribution, if any, from the monitored facilities and other man-made sources. The Network was intended to measure radiation levels during routine facility operations and to establish background ... continued below

Description

This is the final report of the US Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) Direct Radiation Monitoring Network, covering the fourth quarter of 1997. The Network was operated by the NRC in cooperation with participating states to provide continuous measurement of the ambient radiation levels around licensed NRC facilities, primarily power reactors. Ambient radiation levels result from naturally occurring radionuclides present in the soil, cosmic radiation constantly bombarding the earth from outer space, and the contribution, if any, from the monitored facilities and other man-made sources. The Network was intended to measure radiation levels during routine facility operations and to establish background radiation levels used to assess the radiological impact of an unusual condition, such as an accident. This report presents the radiation levels measured around all facilities in the Network for the fourth quarter of 1997. A complete listing of the site facilities monitored is included. In some instances, two power reactor facilities are monitored by the same set of dosimeters (e.g., Kewaunee and Point Beach).
