RadNet Protocol Underreports airborne radiation in Kearney, Nebraska

Join us in welcoming Dr. Robert Price as he discusses the EPA’s first near-real-time RadNet air monitor.

The EPA placed its first near-real-time RadNet air monitor into service, on 20 April 2006, in San Diego, California. In ≈ late 2008 their techs installed a RadNet air monitor atop UNK’s Bruner Hall of Science in Kearney Nebraska.

This presentation’s raison d’ˆetre is to describe how the EPA’s RadNet program continues to underreport the beta activity in the air we breath daily, detail the real reasons we should be concerned, and  delineate what the EPA (should do about this.

Robert I. Price received his Ph.D. in Physics from Arizona State University. For six decades, he has studied the tiniest objects in the universe as they define our very existence. Recently retired from thirty five years of teaching with the University of Nebraska at Kearney, he currently teaches courses at Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI).
