ARPANSA has also commenced an independent environmental monitoring program. The independent measurements obtained by ARPANSA are compared against the values measured by ANSTO. This is done to provide additional assurance that the results reported by ANSTO are accurate and the community and environment are protected from harmful effects of radiation.
We’re pleased to announce that the newest location in our ultraviolet (UV) radiation monitoring network is now online. Emerald is the fourth location in Queensland to join our network of real-time UV data.
