The Air Monitoring Group participates in EPA's Nationwide Environmental Radiation Monitoring (RadNet) Program. DEC staff maintain radiation monitoring equipment in Fairbanks and Juneau that produce real-time data and collect filter-based samples for laboratory analysis. A site in Anchorage also collects real-time data and filter-based samples, but is not operated by DEC.
Data from these sites is available through EPA's RadNet data system:
- Japanese Nuclear Reactor Radiation Information - DEC Environmental Health Program
- Fukuishima Radiation Information - Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution
