New tools for crowd source radiation monitoring and mapping

Recent work by scientists and engineers from Battelle Institute working at INEL demonstrated a practical gamma ratiation detection and classification application using commercially available cell phones as crude detectors. The authors of the study point out that there are many cell phones, and although they may not be as accurate as standard instruments, they have the advantage of ubiquity making availability in the event of emergency more likely. Although the code wasn't released in the scientific paper by Joshua Cogliati et.al.

Community Resources

Working with our community to develop media resources for over 15 years here in Marin, I've seen both how much can be accomplished by a dedicated group of volunteers, but also how important it is to have a strong vision, and the persistence to persevere through setbacks and the conflicts that arise in the course of such work.

Morning Chores

Quiet morning, warming up, hardly past the coffee with Sharon, the cat box(2), the breakfast, and the trash- a bit of email, a bike ride, a visit to the hospital on the agenda. Still more clean up, more work on the courtyard and spirit of place.Also TMR and CMCM.
