the Western Regional Climate center AT the DRI - and no others!

"The Community Environmental Monitoring Program (CEMP) is a network of
29 monitoring stations located in communities surrounding and downwind
of the Nevada National Security Site (NNSS), formerly the Nevada Test
Site (NTS), that monitor the airborne environment for manmade
radioactivity that could result from NNSS activities. The CEMP is a
joint effort between the Department of Energy's National Nuclear
Security Administration Nevada Site Office (NNSA/NSO), and the Desert
Research Institute (DRI) of the Nevada System of Higher Education.
