Rostock-Warnemünde, Germany: Bismuth-214 Data (2010-2016)

Colorado Rocky Mountains – January 14, 2016


Lovely view above the San Luis Valley’s fog with the San Juan mountains in the distance to the west, last weekend,  when local temperatures dipped to -31 Celcius. It’s been warming up since then.

Graphs all show 1 month prior to the 15th of the month @ 12:00 noon UTC, with 3 months pasted together each time.    The y-axis is in Bq/m^3 (becquerel per cubic meter) for the radioisotope Bismuth-214 measured at Germany‘s radiation monitor, “DEW0170 – Rostock-Warnemünde (Germany)“, as accessed through EURDEP‘s public “Advanced Map”.   (See my page Online Radiation Monitors.)  

Location is near sea-level close to Sweden between Denmark and Poland, in Northern Germany:

DEW0170 - Rostock-Warnemünde (Germany)

In the below radiation data graphs, I topped the peak value at 12 Bq/m^3 for Bi-214, just above the record, set in November 2015.   I’ve also opted to show it as “polyline”, as the data lines are otherwise barely visible.  The downside of polyline is that the data gaps are not as clear.  I’ve marked those longer than 1 week.  (The shorter ones are often just weekends, it seems.)



… and then the last half year:Rostok_Warnemunde_Germany_2Rostok_Warnemunde_Germany_1


Two of the 3 highest values since 2010, as well as the longest data gap, all occured in the last 3 months.  I remain under the impression that the upticks of the past few months are highly unusual and part of very large releases of radioisotopes into the atmosphere.  I don’t know if this traces back to an unreported nuclear accident, or if it’s further evidence of Fukushima spilraling further out of control.  I can’t even rule out a natural cause of this yet.  I don’t know the cause.  Some things to consider, though:

I still suspect Fukushima (activation product like Co-60 is part of why I think so), but… Can’t be sure without more evidence.   There’s hundreds of other reactors out there too and the nuclear industry unfortunately has a track record to cover up accidents if they can get away with it, or at least downplay the situation…  (They even tried to downplay the situation at Fukushima, when they already knew reactors were in total meltdown and massive amounts of radiation were being releases!  A la NY Times, March 13, 2014, 4th paragraph in Radioactive Releases in Japan Could Last Months, Experts Say.  … Yeah, make that ‘years or centuries’…)

On that NOTE: Due to the decent monitoring network in much of Europe, as far as ‘evidence’ goes, the upticks are most noticeable in Europe.  That is the only reason for my focus on Europe.  Widespread data gaps on US monitors suggest the release(s) may be so enormous as to affect monitors all accross the Northern hemisphere.  (There is barely any public access monitoring in the Southern hemisphere.)



Something’s up.  What exactly it is, I don’t know for sure.  But something’s up.
