Alaska considering adding more radiation monitors

Nuclear engineer: Contamination levels are not necessarily lower the farther away people are from the source. In the Chernobyl disaster, some places 100 miles away had more radiation than other points 10 to 15 miles away. The distribution depends on how winds carry it and where rains wash it down… . . . → Read More: Alaska considering adding more radiation monitors
