This is a “emptying the draft folder” attempt: bunch of data I recently graphed (I pluck most of it of EURDEP (via https://allegedlyapparent.wordpress.com/radioactivity/current-radiation-levels-monitors/ ), and the string ’em together in 3 months per line, and then the next wifi opportunity, I make a blog posts with it – That has tended to be the process till now.)
I can probably conclude that I’ve put enough time into that radioactive cloud that escaped Halden, Southern Norway in mid- to late October 2016. The French monitor highlighted yesterday (FR2044 -BA0KRS924MA_33_SIT_GM) correlates with this data gap and spike all the way in Greece too. If you ponder that all those spikes in the Oct 16 to Oct. 27 period might have come from Halden, and that the disturbances that followed in November-December might have been related, then there’s no way it was just an INES-1 incident. The IAEA’s “final” word on the matter: There was no release beyond authorized limits (The total release to the air wass approx. 16,9 MBq I-131, and 8,4 MBq I-132, so they claim), and no one in, near or far away from the facility was ever overexposed. More further below.

…to get roll’n…
That’s about to be turned into “archival footage” if you ponder some of the “alternative news sites”, it sounds like… Craziness…
Anyhow… A bit más mellow…
Some cool skydiving in this one:
…wobb wobb wobb…
… Couple EMPs and the internet will be fried… and we’ll be back at centrally controlled news… . Making this entire blog rather pointless to an “almost funny” extent… ;-/ If the online radiation monitors remain available after SHTF, then, I suppose, – for what it’s worth- we got a bit of a record of the pre-April 22, 2017 radiation landscape, eh?
Otherwise… I will be enjoying strangely mutated gigantic pink deer wandering by casually, with weird colorful purple sunsets for background….
SO, from the link above the music videos, you get this report:
Screenshot (taken April 9, 2017):
So, my impression that ’emergency venting’ must have been happening well before the Halden leak broke the news on Oct 25th is confirmed: the fuel removal started on Oct 17, and it didn’t go as planned. Extra ‘venting’ (possibly a really nice euphemism for ‘spewing’) went on until somewhere in the Oct. 25 to 31st period.
That they only state I-131 and I-132 data, and no details on the nobLE gas releases, nor a word on the Na-22 spike, and Cs-134 or Cs-137 releases, is an obvious intentional omission. Maybe if they included all those, it might reveal a more concerning situation than a mere cracked fuel rod? Or perhaps it would push ’em outside the ‘permissable levels’, so it’s omitted to remain under that. Nothing would surprise me with this industry anymore. But, only one thing I’m certain of: I don’t know what happened. I just find stuff and ask questions. And I hope someone better-connected and better-equipped takes it further.
Some more 3 month graphs from that period from across Europe:
Well-timed ‘baseline adjustment”:
- Ollandssodraudde, Sweden:
Nummer Een, The Netherlands:
In Southern Europe and Asia Minor, it appears at least two radioactive clouds are overlapping, with data gaps and shifts obscuring their exact timings. Three examples to show what I mean:
And then I updated my Mac from 10.6.8 to 10.11…. And while it might make my printer work at last when I get home, it’s not an improvement for most programs, including the ones I use to make these graphs. Bit annoying, but here’s the stuff I plucked 2 days ago (many monitors shown in previous posts):
- Maly Javornik, Slovakia, 6 months (slow decline and re-increase likely due to winter snow shielding the ground):
- Tarvisio, Italy, 6 months:
Two examples from Belgium showing forced-zero-values, likely due to ionizing radiation’s particles’ effect on monitoring electronic circuitry, as observed often before):
It’s an extra cut and paste to cut them stupid gaps out of it now… ;-/ Like I did for this one:
- Zalou, Romania, 15 months:
-> Look at June! “:-)” -> I graphed this one to show another example of radioactive nuclear fallout causing lower than average data points, in this case from the mystery hushed-by-all-media Spring/April 2016 Event.
(…continued, but with the visual in-between-months gaps:)
Looks like the systems have been properly ‘primed’ for the full-on show-down. If nuclear war were to break out, with hundreds or even more nukes set off it will not make that huge of a difference. Most will be higher up for awhile, then there will be disturbances, data gaps, lower-than-usual and zero values, and the consequences will, just the same, take many years or decades to manifest as a variety of health issues…
They got it down. If all stays calm, I might do a summary of sorts, an overview post, showing the various things I’ve observed on these monitors and what I think they imply.
