Radnet Radiation Monitoring Network

“RadNet is a network of radiation monitors installed in the United States and maintained by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), which monitors the levels of radiation in the air.

The RadNet radiation monitoring network was little known until recently, but has become a widely discussed topic in the United States and across the globe after the earthquake and tsunami wreaked havoc in Japan and caused the release of radiation from the Fukushima nuclear plan.

It is believed that the radiation from Japan was released in dangerous levels and it could soon become a potential health problem for Americans, if not countered well in time – as radiation from Japan has already reached the United States.


The EPA says that its RadNet system is in place, functioning properly, and is fully capable of detecting even a minute change in the radiation levels. Current radiation levels are listed as being normal, but RadNet will detect increases in radiation levels to warn if they are going to drift towards the dangerous levels.

EPA uses this data to keep a close check on the radiation levels in the environment, and maintain a historical record of radiation levels over time. You can download the RadNet data through internet as well.”
