(Is this best expressed in terms of high activity or what?)

bulk source
Explanation:
Would this fit your context?

Often, the bulk source of all of the biological activity is outside of the well screen and not visible.

Mass production of plastic-intensive products depend on a steady, reliable source of raw material with automated transfer within the plant. Whether originating in gaylords, "Super-sacks", bulk trucks or railcars, manufacturing managers and plant engineers must understand the equipment and systems available for high volume transport of raw materials from their originating bulk source to their destination within the plant.

I wound up going with "major radiation source(s)" since it wan't clear whether the criterion was activity, halflife mass, or what: "When no thought your mind doth visit, make your speech not too explicit." :)
