— Oh, SNAP! – A relapse in radiation blogging land… —
“Ik stopte dus met bloggen…” ;-)
(Toch wel een redelijk hardnekkige “verslaving”…, zo blijkt wééral…*)
*I suck at quitting…
So far it has always gone this way: I quit! [then there’s the sound of crickets, sometimes for weeks…] At some point I still check one radiation monitor. Just one. “One for the road…” hehe ;-) One leads to another… I start to look at some longer term patterns… And then…
Then comes that “Hm…” moment again…
Like… for instance, one Hungarian monitor, “Bataapati – Zsibrik Halasto”, stands out in “a sea of calm”. Here’s three times 2 days pasted together, past 6 days:
Next is a 3-month graph to show how unusual that is:
Everything okay at PAKS?
It reminds me of the end of Nov. 2014 upticks/spiking of monitors in Latvia, perfectly downwind from the Zaporizhia NPP in Ukraine, where ‘officially no radiation leaked’. Such a +0.3 µSv/hr would exactly be what you’d get from a serious release.
The nearest NPP is Paks, Hungary, a notoriously dirty nuclear plant, but there’s plenty of other ones upwind as well, in Slovakia, Czech Republic, Germany, Belgium, France, The Netherlands, the UK, and even further across the pond, of course. Nearby monitors show absolutely nothing, making this a curious one.
So I hopped from monitor to monitor and strung some 3-month periods together, sampling a bit here and there. They don’t always end on the same end-date, as I did a bit here, a bit there, spread over many days.
Statie 400 KV -2 in Romania just re-arose from a long data gap:
“Alert level detection, with a peak of up to ~ 19 uSv/hr showing on a Romanian Carie private monitoring station on the,
http://www.uradmonitor.com private monitoring network.
“MP Andriy Artemenko (Radical Party) has said that on July 16 a serious accident with leakage of nuclear fuel was recorded at Khmelnytsky nuclear power plant (NPP), while the press service of National Nuclear Generating Company Energoatom denied the information.”
The surface wind direction is coming from the Ukraine to this Romanian location at present.
One problem with that theory (that the spikes were caused by a leak at the Khmelnytsky NPP on July 16) is that the various disturbances and data gaps began earlier, as well as in places obviously not downwind. Actually… since “that present” is long past, if you check for July 23 when the above comment was left, you strangely find that the wind was NOT actually even blowing from the Ukraine to Romania: (click ‘Earth’ to adjust air layer, and browse through the days before): @ https://earth.nullschool.net/#2016/07/23/0600Z/wind/isobaric/850hPa/orthographic=-335.46,48.20,3000/loc=31.675,48.987
So much for that… ;-/ But those spikes did occur during the time EURDEP data-gapped its record away, though, further documenting exactly what I’ve been saying for years: the official monitoring stations are configured to hide the data when it matters most!
Kocevje, Slovania saw increasing upticks in the second half of July:
Snow obviously melts late in far-northern Sweden (in May, as evidenced here with the disappearance of snow’s ground shielding), but the June data gap might be hiding a spike (see next graph from The Netherlands). And the past 10 days hint of slight fallout conditions:It melts even later high up in the Italian Alps:
A +0.8 µSv/hr “glitch dot” at Gastel (Maarheze), Nederland in the first week of July 2016:
Lublin, Poland: The lower-than normal data points amidst data gaps and upticks is what I associate with “fallout conditions”. Something’s coming down all over Europe and all you need to do is graph enough long-term records to see how it stands:
The T-BETA-ART monitor @ JRC STation #7 in the Italian Alps has quieted down after exploring the absurd realms of negative activity rates from late June to mid-July (Just try to make sense of the negative bequerel….)
St. Aegyd in Austria saw a zero-value and spike up to a ridiculous 0.7 SIEVERT. Weird way to calibrate a monitor, or is this exactly the kind of thing that can happen when a hot particle strikes a monitor directly? Note the fallout pattern in mid-July, however, correlating with the JRC 7 weirdness, onset of Romania data gap, etc.:
Just outside the micro-cracked accident-waiting-to-happen NPP of Doel, Belgium, @ Kallo, the only remarkable thing to observe is an odd increase in background radiation, without dips below 0.080 µSv/hr the past 10 days (look closely):
A neighbouring monitor, also right there on the northern French coast, graphed for a whole year:
Most of November, going into December 2015 is data-gapped into invisibility here as well. In February 2016 the record becomes increasingly unstable, with peak values recorded – again – in the second half of April:… followed by data gaps and a spiking at the end of May. With yet another baseline adjustment with an uptick in it just now:
Look like they sure know how to fool the French…
Looked at the Radon-220 record from Sveti Kriz, Croatia again. Mysterious mega-spike at the end of a data gap in the second half of January 2016:
And for the mid-April to mid-May period… Not for public eyes:
(OR, actually, it’s possible that the presence of various other radioisotopes pushed the minimum detectable concentration so far
down up that the data gaps essentially mean “none detected” DUE TO the effect of large quantities of OTHER radionuclides present, or shorter sampling times, which can have the same effect. )
Anyhow… some more bits and pieces:
Found another example of ‘negative dose rates’, here @ Porto, Portugal in spring 2015:
The monitor @ CERN, Switzerland seems to suggest there’s at least “additional circumstantial evidence”, in the form of Cesium-137 and Iodine-131 detections this July 2016, that the upticks have an artificial component and cannot be dismissed with the standard pro-nuclear troll lines like, “probably just radon rainout”:
Kielce, Poland is back (or new?):
“Often entertaining” Strumica, Macedonia, after its 4-dots-calibration-style spike of + 14,000 µSv/hr in early July, has seen some plain weird massive spikes amidst data gaps at the end of July and onset of August:
Lamia, Greece just doesn’t seem to be able to come up with comforting data, either:
-> “The event” in late April, data-gapped away,
A look at a whole year @ Kocevje, Slovania, starting out with the high weirdness of autumn 2015:
Some people may recall that the disturbances of autumn 2015 is what got me back into this after the so-many-th attempt to quit. ( ;-) ), with posts like:
- Nov. 2, 2015: ALERT – Major Radiological Disturbances in Northern Hemisphere. (October 2015)
- Oct 31, 2015: EURDEP: Of Data Gaps the Sound of One Maroon Dot… (Germany, Netherlands, Poland, Lithuania, Russia, Latvia, Sweden, Finland DATA)
- Oct. 31, 2015: EURDEP: 48 hrs versus 1 month data: Finding the Data Outages
- Oct. 28, 2015: Some more EURDEP observations (March + Oct 2015) from Finland, Norway, Iceland, Germany and Croatia
- !-> Oct. 28, 2015: Detected in Helsinki Finland in October 2015: Cesium-134 & 137, Actinium-225 & 227, Cobalt-60. + Detected in Hamburg, Germany: Zirconium-97.
- Oct. 27, 2015: EURDEP data suggests something serious happened. Aside from data gaps and data delays, highest radiation levels in at least one year observed in many parts of Europe…
More in my Nuclear Blog Posts Archive. But, again, it was the presence of Cobalt-60 that had me wondering if we’re looking at more and more evidence of Fukushima having gone majorly re-critical. Fact is that Co-60 was again part of the mix in May 2016. Fact is also that EURDEP is actively shrubbing the record of these inconvenient detections…
Kocevje, Slovania, continued…:
The weirdness of mid-February, spikes at the onset of March, and “the event” around April 24 with a higher spike showed up here clearly as well. The current uptick of late July 2016 is apparent here as well:
A look at a year in nearby Bratislava Koliba, Slovakia shows similar patterns:
Then EURDEP crashed, and for some time it even looked like I had been set free from my terrible habit:
But, alas, the reprieve was temporary… What actually really got me back to “Hm… Maybe I should just post this anyhow, eventhough I’m trying to quit…” was…
I was looking at this lone monitor, shown below, just north of Brasil in French Guyana. On EURDEP it’s called, “Cayenne-Guyan_973_AGG_CP,” and you can see it here marked on the North-Eastern coast of South America (but stil in the Northern Hemisphere) :
It’s exceptionally quite there, kinda like Iceland used to be… Until the nuclear meltdowns of 2010-2011… (Currently, still, all 4 icelandic monitors are either dead or only spitting out secret data…) SO… here’s Cayenne-Guyana‘s hot data for the past year, starting at the beginning of August 2015 (note that I adjusted the y-axis to show more detail):
-> That’s what ‘quiet’ looks like. (and it’s not like ‘radon’ or ‘rain’ are European phenomena…)
The (visual but minor) disturbances of November-December 2015 did also show up far more clearly on many European and US monitors. Same with February. But look at April. It’s still just slight, but it’s quite clear that ‘something’ (that emits gamma radiation) was moving through the air… (I’ll zoom in on it at the end, after the year data):
And another, even more pronounced “fallout pattern” occured in mid-June, and most recently (at time of writing in early August 2016), a minor new uptick right now again…:
–> What struck me most is: the disturbances of the second half of April stand out; a time marked with very pronounced abnormalities in Europe, with spikes of multiple microsievert and radioisotope-specific detections (including of Tellurium-132, Cobalt-60, Iodine-131, Cesium-134, widespread upticks in Cesium-137, etc. – as recapped in the July 22, 2016 blog post, “Fukushima-Daiichi having FISSION Flare-Ups? Saudi Arabia Test a Nuclear Bomb? A Major Nuclear Meltdown Cover-Up Somewhere? Which one is it???“.)
“Oh Yeah… thát…” Yup, still wondering, actually. (Seen any illuminating news articles? I haven’t…)
Okay, one ACTUALLY… They may not have the most reliable reputation yet, but credit where credit is due (in this Pre-WW3-period of weirdness), one semi-mainstream outlet let the cat out of the bag, and ALL (I mean… ALL… ) supposedly serious mainstream news outlets ignored it: No one called bullshit on the allegation, either. Double odd. They all just kept quiet. That in itself it weird. They love to call each other on bs. Right?
Since this is exactly what I’ve been poiting at for years, it barely gets more bizarre than this otherwise ignored statement, as mentioned in (June 26, 2016), Emptying the Draft Folder… (Some EURDEP radiation data, RT: Fukushima Still Fissioning, How did they get to “600 Tonnes of Nuclear Fuel Missing”?,…):
RT, May 24, 2016: “600 tons of melted radioactive Fukushima fuel still not found, clean-up chief reveals“: “[…] The absolutely uncontrollable fission of the melted nuclear fuel assemblues continues somewhere under the remains of the station. […]”
Anyhow, hope you didn’t mind that “diversion”… (Or my “relapsing in blogging land”, for that matter… Or the fact that I’m repeating a lot…)
Back to (the same?) reality…
Here, Cayenne-Guyana, re-graphed, below, to show more detail with the specific period in the middle:
–> The dose uptick is a mere 3 nanosievert (0.003 µSv/hr), which is nothing (dose-wise). You’ll get a lot more from Potassium-rich food, or a granite kitchen counter, or so. The reason I find this significant, though, is obviously not in the minuscule dose uptick, but in that it shows how far this radioactive cloud apparently spread: Detectable as far away as South America! It wouldn’t make a dent if it were a negligeable small local European event, me thinketh…
Also interesting is that it occured around (almost exactly!) the same time, with… its apparent “peak” actually coming right before April 24, rather than right after, as was the case for most of Europe (see the Salaspils, Latvia; Seehausen, Germany and Konya Huyuk, Turkey data, among others – all shown in the July 22 post linked to above), and from which I’ll repeat these two graphs once more to highlight the continent-wide nature of this MAJOR event no news source has dared to report on:
See… If the source were in Europe… wouldn’t the radioactive cloud first have to blow over Eurasia and the Pacific before its southern dilluted edges would reach this monitor? That’s a lot of diluting that far branched-off from the jet stream…
Do I need to repeat my all-powerful disclaimer? Okay… Check out my DISCLAIMER. Read it in full. And at the very least remember this: I hold no claims on knowing the Truth. Your supposed authorities likely know what’s up, what matters, and what doesn’t. They are probably the most lovable (wave that tax-district flag!), in intergrity, nothing-conceiling, nothing-distorting, and always-telling-the-truth mofo’s out there, especially in ALL matters nuclear. When in doubt, discard all I ponder and go to them. Got it? And make sure to read THEIR disclaimers too.
(God… I hope that demons-dispelling trick keeps working…)
Little humor-category distraction… Came across this EURDEP promo video…
That’s some hilarious blatant propaganda, IF you’ve paid ANY attention… LOL:
“Obliged”… I wonder if that British accent was selected for best propagandistic effects… “Laboratory results…” lol
Well, anyhow, extrapolating is hard in such a dynamic planetary atmosphere…
I went back to look at US Radnet data, starting with Alaska, graphing for clues in the period April 10 – April 26, 2016:
In all 3 cases in Alaska, you see ‘something’ in the first 4 days of these graphs, inviting me to look at the 2 weeks before that. So I did. This is the period April 1 – 14, 2016 (so there’s a few days of overlap):
Obviously, it will remain véry difficult to figure out where the leaking source (a major fissioning meltdown-like event, or a nuclear detonation) was, but you can see in the data gaps followed by higher values, that of the three Alaskan records shown, it is quite likely that Anchorage may have gotten “hit” first… (with minor traces. Pleace don’t misinterpret this. I’m just trying to find out the location of the Fissioning Meltdown/China Syndrome/Kaboom Event that let to these weird measurements.) Although… as early as April 2nd??? Maybe that’s a seperate omission event. In either case, Fairbanks and Juneau got “hit” on April 9th, and Fairbanks got a lot more much later on. But if the European long-term data sets I looked at in the past are any clue, you really need to graph many months on end to see the pattern amidst the natural variability…
Because that takes forever on Radnet, here’s just 3x 2-week periods pasted together: From mid-March till End of April 2016:
–> That shows that the onset of the data gap on April 9 is most likely the beginning of this ‘major event’ at thís monitoring location. That’s only interesting for one reason: That seems to be a whole day before the onsets in Europe…
The challenge is: THAT actually doesn’t mean it didn’t occur in Europe per se. It still could have, with the fallout rising to the upper troposphere… and becoming much more apparent on its following rounds around the planet. Can’t rule it out.
One reason to “quit blogging” (a theme that is likely to return anyhow, just because…) is because it seems at times that I’m just going in circles. WHERE-THE-FUCK! ís this measured radioactive cloud coming from? I mean… Come on…! WHERE!? If this happens all the time, then one release mixes with another and it just gets confusing, but…. I just HOPE that it isn’t just quite THAT bad…
Why has not one major news outlet given ANY attention to what is by now well-documented to be a MAJOR nuclear incident? Or why not even attention on the “slightly disturbing” fact that they’re shrubbing the record clean of inconvenient detections? No… They’re really busy covering Hillary’s (s)election as the “OMG First Female (USA!-USA!-USA!) President”… AS IF the “presidential” campaign isn’t one giant choreographed bullshit shit-show of a rigged selection anyhow… Nope. Nothing.
On June 18, 2016, I posted, “Decade-Long Gamma Radiation Record from Argos, Greece“, as part of the (also addictive) “subversive habit” of long-term pattern spotting attempts…
Here’s a zoom-in on two times 3 consecutive months of “off the charts” data:
—- —- —- —- —-
Could this be related?
Could the corium have had a major fission flare-up, akin to an underground nuclear detonation? Did a massive hydrovolcanic explosion occur (when hot corium meets a water layer and the whole water patch blows up in a massive steam explosion). Could such an event be accompanied with a major release of underground built-up radioactive gasses?
I don’t know. Mentioned it before. Though I’d mention it again.
—- —- —- —- —-
Also visible in the Greek Argos monitor is the data gap at the onset of March, when unusual amounts of Cesium-137 “escaped a package in a Helsinki garage (uh-huh…)“. Likewise, there’s mostly data gaps over New Year’s, when Ruthenium-103 was detected outside of Oslo, Norway. “But there’s só mány gaps, you might as well ignore them all.” [sarc.]
That will become easier anyhow, as the European Commission (or the nuclear “experts” they hired, because they idiotically trusted ‘the nuclear industry’ somehow…) is actively replacing the past’s radiation record with one on which perhaps some day nothing abnormal will be found…
Continuing from mid-March 2016:
Not validated, but hey, who needs ‘validated’ data to expose a cover-up? If you get enough ‘non-validated’ data that fits a pattern, in my view “it validates itself”, just through its documented context.
Same with those “lower-than-normal” values were seen in the first week of May. “Instrument error!”, I hear an “imaginary” pro-nuclear troll yell. “Fallout effects!” (ionizing alpha- and beta-radiation affecting the gamma radiation monitor’s electronics), is what I think. But whatever… I did quit “for a reason” before…
How many monitors need to spike, show abnormaly low or high values, or data gaps in the same period, before you know something’s up?
“[…] Yes, and how many times can a man turn his head
And pretend that he just doesn’t see? […] “
Either there was a MAJOR nuclear meltdown event this year, which would mean a monstrous cover-up is in full swing. OR the situation at Fukushima-Daiichi is getting worse, with fission flare-ups and underground explosions and all, which actually would also mean its monstrous cover-up remains in full swing. I think it’s safe to assume that the detections of Co-60 in the various fallout waves in the past few years point at Fukushima, and not at nukes being set off secretly. That newer leaks at various locations are compounding the larger leaking from Fukushima seems most plausible to me.

Meanwhile it is Thursday August 4. Saw some snow high up yesterday afternoon. Bit early, but it’s only going to cool down from here. It’s raining right now. Quite nice. I prefer the forest fire danger on the low end.
Three months till winter…
