Background radiation monitoring. Health Protection Agency worker using equipment at a school to monitor levels of background radiation. Most natural radiation is due to cosmic rays from space, and radon, a radioactive gas produced by the decay of radium from uranium ores. Human sources of radiation include nuclear power stations and pollution from coal-fired power stations. Photographed in the UK.
