Welcome to NAROPI!

Better science through unification

The National Registry of Paranormal Investigators was founded with the hopes of creating an open, publicly accessible data base, free from commercial advertisments and professional biases. This site is intended to function as a valuable growing resource for not only the public, but the thousands of paranormal investigators world wide. Never before has such a census been taken and through the open cooperation of the thousands of investigators nationwide, will we finally see a much more accurate picture of the paranormal landscape. Thank you for your support


This registry is maintained with the support and efforts of The New England Center for the Advancement of Paranormal Science (necaps.org)

Statistics gathered from registry data:


* Pennsylvania has the highest number of paranormal investigators at 218.



* California has the highest percentage of TAPS Family groups.

* 87% of paranormal research teams have a name acronym.

* Coastal states seem to have a higher concentration of paranormal teams.

Search the EMF Emissions Database

search our database of over 300 Epa emf readings

Identifying objects prone to high levels of electromagnetic radiation can help in determining if an area may be prime source for electromagnetic hyper-sensitivity. By knowing an objects normal operational radiation level, such as those contained in this database, you can determine (on site) if that object is producing unusually high EM fields which may be due to malfunction, inappropriate usage etc.

The values contained in this database were established in 1992 by the Environmental Protection Agency and may be used as standard values. However, over time, brand and model specific data may be acquired through a shared knowledge and measurement contributed by investigators world wide.

If you have data we may be able to use, please feel free to contribute to the database. Have new data?

Search the Emissivity Database

search our database of emissivity levels

What is emissivity, and how is it related to infrared temperature measurements?

Emissivity is the ratio of the energy radiated by an object at a given temperature to the energy emitted by a perfect radiator or blackbody at the same temperature. The emissivity of a blackbody is 1.0, the value upon which all other emissivity readings are based. All values of emissivity fall between 0.0 (no emissivity – near 100% reflective) and 1.0 (total emissivity – near 0% reflective). Most infrared thermometers have the ability to compensate for different emissivity values within different materials. In general, the higher the emissivity of an object, the easier it is to obtain an accurate temperature measurement using infrared. Objects with a very low emissivity (below 0.2) can be difficult to obtain accurately. Some polished, shiny metallic surfaces, such as aluminum, are so reflective that accurate temperature measurements are not always possible.
