An important objective of the NIRMG Scheme is to provide background information for Northern Ireland over a period of time so that any fluctuations in the radioactive content of environmental materials derived from man-made sources can quickly be identified. The proximity to the Sellafield nuclear reactors and nuclear reprocessing plant highlights the need for continuing monitoring as this is the greatest source of radioactivity concerning Northern Ireland.
