Thanks for pointing this out. I will send a message to Harlan. Last time this happened, it was an outage on the EPA's end.

I saw this too yesterday, and went directly to EPA's Radnet, requesting a data dump from one site. The data stopped in the afternoon of Jan 10 . I sent a web-mail request as to why; last time it took a week or 2 to get a response. I read that the Gamma monitoring stations are maintained by volunteers; I hope the server isn't the same. The EPA network was once described as critical infrastructure; I hope it is being treated as such.

EPA stopped publishing the Gamma data again Feb 10 at midnight. Last month it was off for at least 5 days with no explanation. They did eventually respond to my query but gave no reason for the national outage. When it resumed, all the missing data was present (at least for the locations I checked). The delay in posting is typically between 3 and 6 hours, and sometimes up to 5 days. I wonder if there may be a final step like an approval that requires some manual action, and this action is performed by a person without reliable backup.
