The U.S. EPA's Office of Air and Radiation’s Office of Radiation and Indoor Air has requested SAB advice on plans to update and expand the air portion of its nationwide system to track environmental radiation, now known as RadNet. The upgraded system is designed to provide improved national coverage as well as additional air monitoring capabilities that are important during radiological emergencies. The Agency has asked the SAB to provide advice on the proposed upgrades and expansion and the methodology for determining the locations for the monitoring stations, given the upgraded and expanded network's objectives.
