      Two Russia-based nuclear monitoring stations that monitor radioactive particles in the atmosphere mysteriously went quiet after an August 8 explosion at a Russian missile testing facility.   As WWII ended, and the Cold War began, America began to strengthen its national defense against the Soviet ces were created resulting in the formation of NATO and the Warsaw Pact. The United States began to create an arsenal of nuclear weapons in order to protect the freedom of its citizens, and the freedom of the world. But freedom from communism would come with .

Additional Physical Format: Online version: Gray, Dwight E., Radiation monitoring in atomic defense. New York, Van Nostrand [] (OCoLC) The preface states that this book is based on radiological plans and technics developed by the Federal Civil Defense Administration and the Atomic Energy Commission.

Three opening chapters briefly sketch the nature of nuclear radiations and indicate the differences between ordinary explosions and those of.

SinceGA has delivered qualified, safety-related and non-safety related Radiation Monitoring Systems (RMS) for the nuclear power industry. Our RMS products are designed and manufactured in the U.S.A. We work closely with each customer to customize systems to meet specific facility requirements, while ensuring conformance to the industry.

The Radiation Monitoring Center (RMC; Chinese: 輻射偵測中心; pinyin: Fúshè Zhēncè Zhōngxīn) is the agency of the Atomic Energy Council of the Taiwan (ROC) which carries out monitoring of natural and man-made ionizing radiation in the environment and within the vicinity of nuclear power plants in arters: Niaosong, Kaohsiung, Taiwan.

“The production of nuclear weapons changed Soviet and American societies by creating whole new kinds of communities and new definitions of citizenship and safety and risk,” said Kate Brown at a presentation of her new book Plutopia: Nuclear Families, Atomic Cities, and the Great Soviet and American Plutonium Disasters.

Radiation protection, also known as radiological protection, is defined by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) as "The protection of people from harmful effects of exposure to ionizing radiation, and the means Radiation monitoring in atomic defense book achieving this".

Exposure can be from a source of radiation external to the human body or due to internal irradiation caused by the ingestion of radioactive contamination.

The modern understanding of ionizing radiation got its start in with Wilhelm Röntgen. In the process of conducting various experiments in applying currents to different vacuum tubes, he discovered that, despite covering one in a screen to block light, there seemed to be rays penetrating through to react with a barium solution on a screen he’d placed nearby.

Much of the destruction caused by a nuclear explosion is due to blast effects. Most buildings, except reinforced or blast-resistant structures, will suffer moderate damage when subjected to overpressures of only kilopascals (kPa) ( pounds-force per square inch or atm).
