We report here about the possibility of using a compact scintillation NaI(Tl) detector, long-term stable and reliable, to monitor separately the components of the environmental radiation, i.e. in the energy range 0.28–2.8 MeV, due to very low energy secondary (Ultrasoft) cosmic radiation and radioactivity, airborne and from environment matter. We suggest some procedures to accomplish time variation analysis, by using a sample of data collected in Bologna.
