A year @ Ukkel, Belgium (EURDEP data)

Colorado Rocky Mountains – July 21, 2016

Online Radiation Monitors –> EURDEP (Advanced Public map, gamma radiation.  Note: most data supplied to EURDEP has not been ‘validated’ by the authorities that supplied the data (aka plausible deniability).

Curious how that spring 2016 nuclear blow-up / meltdown / detonation extravaganza fun fest of denial at “some mystery location” might have affected the gamma monitor at Ukkel, Belgium, I graphed a year from EURDEP data (better interface than FANC’s):

Ukkel_Belgium_3mo-endingOctober21_2015

–> a year ago saw a couple peak values, after which all stayed neatly under 0.160 µSv/hr.  The fallout-like patterns of late September through November 2015 are visible here too, albeit less pronounced than many other monitoring locations:

Ukkel_Belgium_3mo-endingJanuary21_2016

–> That slight uptick in the very beginning of January 2016 is right when before Ruthenium-103 was detected in Norway.  ( a fact actively being ERASED…)

Ukkel_Belgium_3mo-endingApril21_2016

–> the mid-February ‘disturbances’ aren’t as pronounced here either, but the “Helsinki Garage Leak” (highest Cesium-137 levels since Chernobyl) of early March is visible here as well in an uptick.  Right following the Brusssels day of terror (March 22) there’s a zero-value.   Then after another slight uptick in mid-April, the data is slightly down for a week.

Ukkel_Belgium_3mo-endingJuly21_2016

–> The weeks of April 24-May 8, full of abnormalities elsewhere are uneventful here, but it looks like the fallout came more delayed here, perhaps on its next round around the planet, with the typical data gaps amidst disturbances seen here as well, in late May and early June. The data gap after May 15 corresponds nicely with the data gap seen in many places, following an uptick in Cs-137 and detections of Cobalt-60 in Norway.

Could this be related to… (Jan 26, 2016) Any Significance to Cobalt-60 in Fukushima Fallout?  Or did a nuclear bomb go off somewhere?   Anyhow…

Very nice callibration to almost meaningless gamma energy ranges.  Zero radioisotope-specific data.  Almost nothing to see, and where there would be something to see, there REALLY is nothing to see.   Very well done, FANC.  [sarc.]

Oh, and to add to the quiz (previous post), there might have been a pinch of Thorium-232 in the fallout cloud as well (on top of Tellurium-132, Iodine-131, Cesium-134, Cesium-137, Lead-210, and some activation products like Be-7, Na-22, and Cobalt-60).

Peculiar that seemingly natural radioisotopes like Th-232 would show upticks right along extremely unusual upticks of artificial radioisotopes… as previously also mentioned in Any Thorium-231 in Fukushima Fallout ?

    Hi Michael.

    I’ve been hunting around on EURDEP today for any trace of a leak from the Ukrainian Khmelnitsky NPP which did not have a major problem last week (16th July) according to the operator, although they have admitted a coolant release – maybe primary coolant which is never good. There was basically no surface wind across the whole region for those few days, and the Kiev monitor was offline.
    There was a quite pronounced gamma uptick on some of the monitors to the south and west of Ukraine (Romania, Hungary, Croatia, Austria, etc) on 16th & 17th, and also back to late in the day on 15th on a couple of graphs, but from the pattern I’m thinking that this is more likely jetstream drop-out (looking at Nullschool maps for that period) and part of the wider ongoing fallout over pretty much the whole Northern Hemisphere. There does seem to be something going on again (if there isn’t constantly anyway) at Fuku from about a week ago, judging by NETC (the new animate function is quite nice to use, and also the Safecast system has a graphing feature and loads of data now which has appeared since last time I was there), and also the U.S. seems to be getting bathed again (although I haven’t studied monitors in the States very closely over time to give me an idea of comparative severity of rads), so I’ve been waiting for upticks to reach us this side of the Atlantic, which it looks like they now are again.
    We’ve had almost no rain in Europe this past week, which makes tracking fallout more difficult, but we had a shower locally here today at about 2pm and bingo – right on cue a rise during that hour at the Plymouth station to the highest it’s been for six weeks, and not due to radon washout as the breeze was the wrong way for that.

    So, my point?
    None really beyond ‘another day in the plantary fallout zone’, I suppose.
    And stuff I thought you might find interesting.

    I wish I could end our head scratching about where that batch of fresh fission nuclides that were dumped on us all came from earlier this year – it’s not for want of searching!
    Still working up my confidence & knowledge and deciding how to go about blogging.
    I nearly set one up today, but ended up posting at ENE, which is still quite a leap for me at the moment.

    Oh, the other thing to mention is that on the Ukrainian NPP government/operator website there is a small rad monitor network available which I hadn’t previously been aware of, which adds another tiny bit of awareness to the region. One reading per day in uSv/h at 11 stations in the area around the NPP – click on the dates on the calender for historic data;

    Given who it’s run by I wouldn’t risk my life on their numbers, but it could be a useful tool to track something one day maybe.

    That’s all for now.
    Peace.
    The Fool
