Real-time Atmospheric Effective Radiation Dose Rates from the NAIRAS model

These plots are using NOAA-SWPC-issued GOES X-ray 5 minute averaged real-time data.

This page was loaded at Thu Feb 22 14:54:51 UTC 2018 Thu Feb 22 14:54:51 UTC 2018 and will reload in two minutes. Images are updated every hour.

Image features: : Each global plot shows the calculated effective dose rate in μSv/hr as a function of geographic longitude and latitude. Shown is the variation in the dose rate at altitudes 0, 5,10,and 20 km.
