- UNSCEAR was established by the General Assembly of the United Nations in 1955. Its mandate in the United Nations system is to assess and report levels and effects of exposure to ionizing radiation. UN Chernobyl Page: http://www.unscear.org/unscear/en/chernobyl.html
- Have a look at how the radiation cloud from Chernobyl in 1986 traveled across Europe: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oZ74Rqh7yDE&feature=related from which the below is a static screen-shot with text added by me:

- Resources about Chernobyl:
- The US’s Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has “a neat little section about Chernobyl” here: http://www.epa.gov/rpdweb00/rert/chernobyl.html, including a very basic visual about the rise in background radiation the months the radiation clouds passed over the USA. Here are the 5 months with averaged data (convenient, so no spikes or localized hazardous hot spots are shown):
A word of caution about the “Resources” the EPA provides regarding Chernobyl: at least half of ‘m are entrenched nuclear war industry powerhouses: the U.S.Nuclear Regulatory Commission (which has been accused by the Union of Concerned Scientists as doing an inadequate job), U.S. Department of Energy (DOE – which owns the US’s 9000+ nuclear warheads) , and -most interesting choice for proving links to reports on the health effects: Lawrence Livermore Laboratory (which is funded by the DOE, and among other insanities, designs nuclear warheads – not exactly the kind of madmen I’d trust for health information about radioactivity).
