This is the Radiation Monitoring Open Data API, that is populated using the EPA’s Environmental Radioactivity Ireland Central (ERIC) data warehouse. ERIC is a single repository that contains all terrestrial and marine environmental radioactivity and radiological data from routine monitoring programmes and research projects from 1982 to the present day. The data is stored using the European Commission‘s Radioactivity Environmental Monitoring (REM) format. ERIC stores only validated results from data source repositories.

Important Note on Data
is_mdafield is very important as this determines whether the data reported is a measured activity as opposed to not being detected. The
is_mdafield determines whether the data reported is a measured activity or below the Minimum Detectable Activity of the monitoring equipment used to make the measurement. If the
Falsethen the result is detected: use the
Valuefield to determine the activity. The
Uncertaintyfield will tell you the level of uncertainty for that value. If the
True, then the result reported is below limits of detection. The
Valuefield will tell you the Minimum Detectable Activity, in this instance the reported result should be either
