Radiation sensing
#1
Question 
Hi, had some intriguing ideas today.

As many people might be aware, there is a global network of radiation/environmental sensors called uRADMonitor.

I had a thought, could they be supplemented with more accurate timekeeping so that gamma ray flashes (TGFs) can be tracked as well
as overall radiation level?

TGFs are believed to originate from electron-positron annihilation events inside thunderstorms as well as conventional X-rays.

The detector grid would need to be synchronized to a few us to get any sort of useful data on these, ideally using something like an MSF/Droitwich radio  similar to the ones used in weather stations.
In this case each "node" would also have an OCXO or similar with its reference used to "tag" detected events.
This would also provide precise details of location using basic triangulation with each sensor position known via web interface.

Anyone have any ideas please?

wait are we talking earth's surface or space based radiation flashes?

and if surface reasons any particular reason why you want to track gamma ray flashes?
I don't think anyone's doing any nuclear testing?

3.6 Roentgen, not great but not terrible.

Context please? Did you get a radiation sensor?

Based on the radiation xkcd it seems quite good to me
