!!!–> I finally added the Cecium-137-only Fukushima fallout map in Chornobyl Cs-137 fallout UNEP legend colors to my ‘Extended Fukushima Fallout Maps – Sept 29 MEXT Release. Fukushima vs. Chernobyl – 2‘ [–> that previous blog post includes original unaltered maps and their sources, as well as the color legend translation key I created. Check it out!].
Comparison of Cs-137 contamination Chornobyl versus Fukushima:
- Europe, showing Cs-137 falloyt from the 1986 Chornobyl nuclear disaster:
- Selection of Japan mapped for Cs-137 fallout stemming from March 2011 Fukushima nuclear disaster, in above UNEP colors: (See here for original MEXT/DOE map sources.)
- To gauge distance comparison:
All color-translation maps are original artwork by © Michaël Van Broekhoven, 2011.
PS: At some point all the map comparisons related to these nuclear disasters are likely to be brought together on this static page. (= work in progress)
