Background and Cosmic Radiation Monitoring
his is my project on monitoring real-time ambient radiation as well as studies/projects on radiation effects and use. The monitoring was initially performed in South Dublin/Ireland area and currently I am in process or setting up a system for Naas/Kildare. Data (composite alpha, beta, gamma and x-ray radiation) is collected using a Geiger counter connected to a computer. The graph bellow is updated every minute. I will be adding here, hopefully soon, an additional graphs showing the cosmic radiation by means of muon detection.
