The 29th annual workshop of the Air Monitoring
Users Group (AMUG) will convene on 13 and 14 November at the Palace Station in
Las Vegas. The exciting and informative program will include some contemporary
presentations of radioactive airborne sampling and monitoring, and other
relative material in radiation detection and radiation protection. The meeting
will also host some commercial/technical exhibits. The Palace Station will
provide reasonably priced meeting and sleeping rooms for those attending.
Among the important relevant issues will be discussions
about ANSI N42.54, the newly published comprehensive standard that deals with
all of the major issues of radioactive airborne sampling and monitoring; the
continuing review of the Fukushima aftermath; a current look at noble gas,
radon/progeny, and tritium monitoring; a renewal of the revision of ANSI N42.320 for reactor emergency
monitoring, and other relevant ANSI standards; and a view of some of the
currently available commercial radiation monitoring systems.
With sufficient interest, there will be a tour of the Nevada
National Security Site, formerly NTS on Wednesday, 15 November.
The registration fee for this workshop/seminar is $120 per
person payable to: Morgan Cox at 34100 Chagrin Blvd in Moreland Hills, Ohio
