The accompanying dataset contains information about lost, stolen and found licensable sealed sources and radiation devices since 2008. Licensees have an obligation to report these occurrences. The dataset was generated by the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission (CNSC) from events reported to the CNSC by licensees and members of the public. The same information is used to produce the Reports on Lost or Stolen Sealed Sources and Radiation Devices that is published on the CNSC’s website.

The data represents the annual solar radiation in Alberta over the 30-year period from 1971 to 2000. A 30-year period is use to describe the present climate since it is enough time to filter out short-term fluctuation by is not dominated by any long-term trend in the climate. Daily total incoming solar radiation is measured in megajoules per square metre (MJ/m2). Southern Alberta receives the greatest amount of annual global solar radiation with the amount gradually decreasing as you move farther north.
