Every day, wherever we go, we are exposed to minute amounts of environmental radiation.* This environmental radiation is emitted continuously, day and night, from various objects and substances in the natural world and our living environment.
Most environmental radiation consists of three types: alpha rays (α), beta rays (β) and gamma rays (γ). HORIBA`s PA-1000 `Radi` environmental radiation monitor makes it easy for non-specialists to measure even minute levels of gamma rays.
* Environmental radiation, also known as natural radiation, includes radiation emitted from space, soil, stones, the ground and the air, as well as from manmade objects such as concrete and buildings

Technical Associates provides some of the best radiation detection and measurement equipment for Homeland Security. The TBM-3SR, or the Digital Version TBM-3SR-D, is cited by experts for use on every Fire Truck in the United States. The DSI-2 measures background radiation detecting any elevation in radiation. The DSI-2NT Series detects both fast and slow neutrons and model DSI-2GN detects and measures Gammas and Neutrons (Fissile Material).

This analytical procedure is intended for measuring the content of the elements (cadmium, lead, arsenic, tin, chromium and mercury) in the samples of food products by atomic absorption spectrometry with electrothermal atomization using an “MGA-915M” Graphite Furnace AA Spectrometer.
The method is based on measuring resonance radiation absorption that occurs when the radiation passes through a layer of atomic vapor in the electrically heated graphite furnace of the “MGA-915M” AA spectrometer. The concentration of the elements is determined from the integrated analytical signal and is calculated using a preset calibration graph. The samples of food products are digested prior to analysis in accordance with standard methods.

Temperature is an important factor in streams ecosystems. Heat tracers have been used to characterize contaminant transport, infiltration rates and energy exchange with groundwater, the atmosphere and radiation. The dynamics of these complicated water bodies is also affected by seasonal and diurnal patterns making characterization particularly challenging. Utilizing temperature measurements that capture spatial and temporal variations at stream ecosystem interfaces provides a mechanism for detailed characterization.
