The application shows measurements of environmental radioactivity in the form of gamma dose rate averages and maxima for the last 24 hours. These measurements originate from some 5000 stations in 38 European countries.

Registered users can also subscribe to information feeds to be rapidly notified about abnormal measurements reported by monitoring stations in the user's selected area e.g. home town, country region etc.

The platform has no alerting function. The notification of a radiological accident or emergency is accomplished through early notification networks such as ECURIE or EMERCON, operated by the EC and the IAEA respectively. No action may be taken based on this data without prior consultation with the data-provider.

Most of the measurements presented are NON-VALIDATED DATA, which means that meteorological conditions such as heavy rain or snow, or defects in the instruments, electronics or software can result in erroneous values. As a consequence isolated alarming objects on the map CANNOT automatically be taken as an indication of increased levels of radioactivity. Even if several nearby stations show increased values, this does not necessarily imply an ongoing emergency, because similar effects can be caused by calibration tests on the monitoring stations concerned or heavy showers in the region.
