The Airborne Radionuclide Concentrations (ARC) Dataset is a general dataset of airborne radionuclide concentrations analyzed at the Radiation Protection Bureau (RPB). The RPB is responsible for delivering Health Canada’s program in the area of ionizing radiation protection. This dataset includes radionuclide concentrations at locations in RPB’s Canadian air monitoring networks including its Comprehensive Nuclear Test-Ban Treaty (CTBT) stations and the Canadian Radiological Monitoring Network (CRMN). The dataset may also include additional airborne radionuclide concentration data from other networks, fieldwork and any additional data collected during emergencies.
This dataset provides the results obtained by Health Canada’s Radiological Monitoring Network (CRMN) for airborne radioactivity content at monitoring stations across Canada. More information about the CRMN network can be found on the Health Canada website (see link below). The results provided are activity concentration, uncertainty and the minimum detectable concentration for the naturally occurring radionuclides, beryllium-7 (7Be) and lead-210 (210Pb), and the anthropogenic (originating from human activity) radionuclides, cesium-134 (134Cs), cesium-137 (137Cs), and iodine-131 (131I). The data comes from the analysis of particulates accumulated in filter media, drawn by high-volume air samplers fixed in the field.

Stratagex Ltd was contracted by the AGS in 2001 to compile a catalogue of all existing ground and airborne geophysical survey data contained in the archived mining assessment reports of the AGS, supplemented where possible with information on non-exclusive and proprietary surveys from exploration industry and other sources. This data set shows the airborne survey locations and detailed information about the survey including: Type of survey flown [fixed wing or helicopter. barometric (constant elevation) or drape (topographic contour following), Year of data acquisition and contractor, Description of the system flown [any one or combination of magnetics, VLF-EM, radiometrics, time domain electromagnetics (TDEM), frequency domain electromagnetics (FEM)]., Survey specifications (flying height, line direction, line separation, tie line spacing and direction), Location of the survey (corner co-ordinates of the survey area in UTM and latitude and longitude), Outline of the actual survey coverage (plan map of survey block outline on planimetric base), Owner of the data at time of acquisition (and contact person if available), Assessment of data quality (where possible, based on the maps or profiles made available by the Contractor/Mining Company who holds the data), Availability of the data for use or acquisition by the AGS (for compilation, resale, in-house research), Media and format that data is available on (paper, digital images, raw digital data, etc.), Asking price for acquiring the data (if available) and the conditions under which it would be made available.
