RADCON 1 RadiationBackgroundLevel | RADCON-2-Rising | RADCON-3-Elevated | RADCON-4-Concern/Watch | RADCON-5-ALERT
NORM ( Natural Occurring Radioactive Material ) radiation background level has been simplified in name only to RBL ( Radiation Background Level ). The same calculations are still used. Radcon-1 will be the middle of RBL ( Radiation Background Level ) range and it will be compared to the Current Radiation at that monitoring station. The increase change between middle of RBL and the Current Radiation will set the Radcon levels 2 for small increase, 3 for higher increase, and 4 for the top of the range over a three month time frame. When RBL is above the radiation background range and other requirements are met, an Radcon-5 Alert will be issue and Email/Text messages are sent. If the Radcon-1 is Green/Yellow, the RBL (Radiation Background Level) is decreasing or staying the same level, like in Japan where most of the RBL are Green/Yellow.
