March 19, 2016 – DISCLAIMER
Alright… Online Radiation Monitors -> EURDEP -> The EURDEP Disclaimer makes it clear everything I think must somehow be delusional. Got it. ‘Accept’… I guess this is all ‘for entertainment purposes only…’
Past 2 days… Max Gamma… Zoom in:
A gamma radiation monitor linked in to the European Data Exchange Platform (EURDEP), closest to Lithuania’s very unpopular but planned ‘Visaginas Nuclear Power Plant’ [=Wikipedia] is lit up. It sits right by the Ignalina Nuclear Power Plant, which reportedly is in the process of being decommissioned… This odd-looking spike could be an instrument error, but it’s certainly not looking like “just a calibration’:
6 days pasted together shows the pre-spike ‘normal’ (Feb 29 – March 5, 2016):
Next 6 days: March 7, 2016 sees a change: the measurements, eventhough the dose rate remains relatively tiny, show upticks nearing double normal background, with increasing data gaps shortly after, followed by a very long data gap:
When data flow returns a week later, the monitor is showing astronomical readings just above 1,400 µSv/hr, then drops to zero and remains in what looks like a malfunction mode:
Was there a significant radioactive cloud and a hot particle messed up proper measurement? What do other monitors show during the data gap? Let’s see…
One just to the east, very close-by, @ Macionys showed a minor uptick, after narrow spikes (which could be solar flare related, or radon progeny coming down with precipitation) The elevated baseline and brief minimum-uptick is apparent:
Visaginas, 1 MONTH data, and I’ve set the y-axis to show more detail before and after the data gap + spike:
–> Just from looking at this (the Macionys data particularly), what I see is: It rained, and the rain, with some natural radon progeny in it (but perhaps also other stuff too) came down and melted the snow, raising the baseline background radiation (less shielding by the snow of the ground radiation). You always get that in late winter / spring. Unfortunately, the short Latvian data gap on March 14 roughly coincides with a mini-uptick at Macionys, all within the larger data gap, leaving the possibility quite open that something is being cover-up here.
Bit out of the region, but… striking for its timing: Isn’t it odd that the radioisotope-specific monitor in Nicosia, Cyprus between March 7 – 15 happened to show… nothing:
Or how about the timing of spikes, data gaps and baseline jump on this monitor in Bulgaria:
First a look to the North (and Northwest) of the Lithuanian monitor in question, just picking couple monitors to see if there’s anything to see in the details:
Note: Estnia has 3 radioisotope-specific monitoring locations (Testing for Be-7, Cs-137, Cs-137, I-131, Pb-210, Ru-103, Ce-144, K-40, Co-60). Estonia has not released ANY data since February 2016. What’s up with that? You get a massive Cs-137 spike in a neighbouring country and you STAND DOWN? (Oh yeah, that’s right, the official radiation monitoring networks are there primarily for cover-up purposes, certainly NOT to expose what’s being covered-up. Got it…)
A look to the south:
What I find interesting about that uptick on March 7, is that it is quite widespread, and 2 things about that:
- That’s when that peculiar spike occured in Southern Sweden:
-> Also covered in (March 7, 2016) Peculiar Radiation Spikes in Europe (@early March 2016) Suggest “Mystery Radiological Emergency” is ONGOING + Largest Cesium-137 detection since 1986 @ Helsinki, Finland (!):
- March 7 also happens to be when the Ivalo monitor all the way in far-Northern Finland picked up the highest Cesium-137 measurement since may 2011, just days after the freak-high-Cs137 detection in Helsinki (which coincided with a Beryllium-7 uptick…):
-> See also (March 15, 2016) Highest Cs-137 Measured Since May 2011 @ Ivalo, Far-Northern Finland (March 7, 2016)
So, anyhow… I’ll keep it simple: I have my doubts that the Lithuanian spike was a mere monitor malfunction. It resembles more closely the spike seen in Estonia at the very beginning of 2016. Oh yeah, nevermind, that Estonia spike never happened… [sarc.]
I also have some doubts that the Cesium-137 spike in Helsinki was merely a very localized waste leak. That may very well have been the case, but I suspect different events are overlapping.
It’s merely ‘my impression’ that it’s pretty obvious that radioactive leaks from various facilities are very common, and it appears they are almost always covered-up, but *proving it*, with that little data provided by the very organizations that oversee this ongoing massive nuclear industry cover-up… it would be a losing battle, I think. Nevertheless, perhaps at least I provided you with some “food for thought…”.
I don’t know how many events are overlapping, which one is causing the Cs-137 and Be-7 upticks, nor where that damn odd Ruthernium-103 in Norway came from in January. I don’t know. I’m curous and (at times a little) concerned, but am ultimately as clueless as your average joe… In the past I’ve often suspected Fukushima-Daiichi as the #1 suspect. This time FDNNP seems less likely, but where else… I really don’t know.
Pretty “illustrating” how the mainstream media was all over Helsinki’s Cs-137 spike, yet ignored Ivalo’s significant uptick days later, and continues to ignore the far more troubling Ru-103 detection, ….
