Soil, water, and - as here - the air will be with most modern measuring equipment examined. This natural radiation is neglected, only the man-made artificial can be dangerous.
The filter test is evaluated on the spot. The result: everything normal. In an emergency, however, the readings would be reported immediately via radio to the operations centre.
In this modest building not far from Karlsruhe, day and night, nuclear power experts available in an accident to move out immediately with modern equipment.
