Decade-Long Gamma Radiation Record from Argos, Greece

June 18, 2016

Some data I did my usual thing with: pasting 3 month-graphs together per line, going back awhile (in this case starting in Dec. 2005), for the purpose of improving my ability to spot and interpret abnormalities in long term patterns.

For another decade-long record from Greece, see the quite different (and perhaps more striking) data from Lamia, in (May 14, 2016): Rambling Along a Decade of Gamma Radiation Data from Lamia, Greece

  • DATA:  Outdoor gamma radiation via EURDEP, this time I picked the monitor from Argos, Greece.   Not per se ‘validated’ by the authorities that supplied the data, but in my opinion that does not mean the data’s not valid.

3 months per line, most recent at the bottom, and if there was a value above 200 nSv/hr (0.2 µSv/hr –  See Radiation Units and Conversions for help), then a number is indicated on the 3-month graph and the data for that month is shown next with the y-axis left open, so that the highest values are shown.

Starting just before Christmas 2005, we see no spikes for over two years, but summer 2006 saw long data gaps:


Some of these early data gaps could give clues about when and where (San Onofre?)  exactly a major nuclear accident occured that has since lead to significantly elevated thyroid cancer incidence in California, which began before the Fukushima nuclear catastrophe started (about which we now know that it caused massive amounts of radioactive iodine to reach southern California’s coast in Spring 2011…)


At the very end of July 2008, this monitor shows what I call “a glitch dot”: an isolated high value, in this case of over 37 µSv/hr. It occured in the somewhat typical context of surrounding data gaps.




[extra long data gap: from end of May 2009 till late March 2010]


Fallout coming down from covered-up nuclear incidents might have been compounded by accidents so severe that tiny bits of information even leaked out of tightly controlled China… The Chinese Meltdown at Daya Bay NPP in May 2010 may have caused upticks and data gaps in Europe too:







Then, March 11, 2011, the Fukushima-Daiichi nuclear disaster ensues…


We see here again the effect of fallout in lower-than-normal values.  (See also: June 9, 2016: Does BETA radiation affect GAMMA Monitors Negatively?).  Within 2 weeks there’s also an apparent data processing shift


Indications that much of Fukushima’s radioactive fallout did not reach ground-level until later in 2011 is apparent in this data record as well:







–> Looks like some serious fallout conditions in Sept. 2012…







–> Except for that seemingly minor uptick on April 18, 2014, the Fessenheim NPP incident is not immediately visible here, but it is quite possible that, just like after Fukushima much of the fallout comes much later.

(DW, 04.03.2016, by Nicole Goebel) Reports: Fessenheim nuclear accident played down by authorities, excerpt:”Both the French nuclear authority, ASN, and the company operating the two Fessenheim nuclear reactors, French energy giant EDF, allegedly did not divulge the gravity of the incident on April 9, 2014, when one of the reactors had to be shut down after water was found leaking from several places.

Researchers from German daily “Süddeutsche Zeitung” and public broadcaster WDR claim the incident at Fessenheim, which is in Alsace near the border with Germany, could turn out to be one of “most dramatic nuclear accidents ever in Western Europe.””



–> Possible that the disturbances in Dec. 2014 were related to the radioactive cloud that came from the Zaporizhia NPP in Ukraine.  See Dec. 15, 2014:  Was there a causal link between the Nov 28 2014 Accident at the Zaporizhye Nuclear Power Plant in Ukraine and recent Radiation Spikes in Latvia and Romania? and related posts.

The source that caused the major disturbance and spike with data gaps in October 2014 is not known, though upticks during the same period gave me the impression at the time Fukushima was contributing to the Northern Hemisphere’s radiological mess that fall. (Jan. 31, 2016DATA of ‘Fallout Signatures’ on Radiation Monitors Suggest Fukushima Still Going Re-Critical Underground At Times. Airborne Fallout Continues To Come Down Across the Northern Hemisphere.)






-> Almost no data in Summer 2015, followed by major spikes, data gaps, etc.


Apparently there’s “a ceiling” in place here, with #13, #15 & # 17 going as high as 10 mSv/hr, but not higher:





-> This might be a very significant clue, as February saw widespread data gaps and spikes.  France even turned its monitors off in the Southern Hemisphere.   Ruthenium-103 was detected in Norway in January 2016, Tellurium-132 in Germany at the end of April 2016, and upticks (and data gaps in monitoring for) in Cesium-137 were detected in Finland, Norway, Czech Republic and elsewhere.  Even Fukushima-fingerprint activation product Cobalt-60 was picked up again during this period.

!-> See my Nuclear Blog Posts Archive for these and many other abnormalities, documented on this blog like nowhere else.





There is not much that could be concluded from just one such a long-term data record of (mostly unvalidated) data, but it adds to previous documentations.  My impression remains:

  • The monitoring networks are rigged to manipulate the data when it matters most.
  • Much of nuclear accident fallout takes many months before reaching ground level.
  • Nuclear incidents with serious releases of radioactive particles and gasses occur much more frequently that the official accident record indicates.
  • Governments and their so-called independent watchdogs know this and in order to conceal the magnitude of radioactive pollution, they keep “emergency monitoring” to such a short-term minimum that the actual truth of the matter does not become public knowledge.
  • Various releases from the past decade are compounding each other.

And the beat goes on…

    Hi mvb,
    Good work putting together a long record of readings!
    Must be hard to sift through all the road blocks but you seem up to the task.
    I agree there are a number of undeclared nuclear “emissions” being ignored by those who get paid to monitor such things…we need a rebate of all those salaries!!
    I wish more folks at the various other sites would stop whining and writing silly song parodies and join up with the truth instead..

    Hi mvb,
    Just saw enenews finally posted a new article and the comment section had a number of really positive comments about you and the fine work you provide to us that wish to know.
    Dont have to post this just a heads up that you are making a difference and people are noticing..

  3. Good work. There’s so much we’re not being told about. People would be horrified if they knew. Do a search on youtube for “nuke yemen” and “nuke Syria”, then you’ll know what I’m talking about.
