Tracking nuclear material release?

While researching the latest news on the nuclear power plant problems in Japan, I read a piece about the '86 Chernobal accident that said radioactive material was spread around Europe and the world in the upper atmoshere.

Are there contingency plans to use aircraft to monitor exposure risks? If not, how would radioactive material be tracked?

Thx...
