Tritium is a pure beta emitter so conventional radiation detectors can 
miss it entirely. 
In the off chance that there is a fuel breach, releasing gamma emitting 
fission products, 
then we can monitor it
with conventional high pressure ion chamber gamma detectors.

A reminder of the Community Environmental Monitoring Program we have 
here in Nevada,
gamma radiation is measured and recorded near real time:


and a similar system in Japan ( Thanks for the link Marshall!)


Do other listmembers have similar links worldwide??
