+ 5.4 µSv/hr Radiation Spike in Hungary

Data shown below was accessed via the European Commission’s Radiation Data Exchange Platform (EURDEP).  That as well as other options, see Online Radiation Monitors.  Read their disclaimer.  Read my disclaimer.  And make up your own mind.  For help with some basics, see Radiation Units & Conversions.  Nuclear-topic articles are listed chronologically in my (to-be-updated) Nuclear Blog Posts Archive.

The observed major upticks @ Bataapati Zsibrik Halasto, Hungary, reported on in last blogpost turned into a spike surpassing 1000 nanoSievert (1 µSv/hr – and climbing to over 5 µSv/hr later on!), here showing 2x  48-hour periods pasted together:


It is clearly not a calibration pattern, and though that can never be ruled out, it doesn’t look like an obvious instrument error either.  Looks like a direct hit from nuclear fallout to me.  That something’s up again is illustrated in greater detail in the previous blogpost.

I went to sleep, and rechecked in the morning (Friday Aug. 5, 2016, Colorado Rockies) to find it climbed several extra microsieverts, to just above 5.4 µSv/hr then a few hours of data gap (cleaned? data processing adjustment?), to show normal values upon its return (at least for now):


Graphed last night (already Aug. 5 in Europe):

More 3-month graphs with an obvious uptick the past day:

[Added later] Southern Greenland:SouthGreenland_3mo_EndingAug5_2016That other very nearby monitors aren’t showing anything unusual might be because they’re tuned to different decay energies. 

Little flashback on that one:  For an example of two monitors very close to each other (@ Salaspils and Riga in Latvia) spitted out vastly different data, see https://allegedlyapparent.wordpress.com/2016/04/25/4%c2%b5svhr-in-latvia/, from which these graphs:

Nov. 2015- late Jan. 2016 (the only relation is in the data gaps here):



  • Jan. 2016 – late April 2016:  Nothing even suggests these are in the same region of the same small country:



So an obviously spiking monitor right next to one showing nothing unusual doesn’t mean anything.   Both monitors may be working fine, just showing different specific energy ranges.

In the previous post I mentioned the Hungarian Paks NPP.   Others have pointed at the Ukraine.   If it’s not just more Fuku-fallout, then I’m more inclined to wonder about Slovakia, simply because its entire network has been data gapped away for over two weeks.  Most monitors have yet to come back online…



Slovakia did bring one NEW monitor online, though [screenshot updated on Aug 6, 2016]:


Some more data from Hungary:


Looking at the wind… seems currently delivered from over Italy and Spain.  Some possibilities for NPPs in Spain and Southern France as well:

Aug5_2016_00UTC_700hPa_18.600_46.200.gifInterestingly, Spain has imposed a 48+ hour data-release delay (which often becomes a data gap):



Except for that one new monitor, Slovakia remains off-line as well.

No new I-131 or Cs-137 spikes since what followed the April data gap @ Hradec Kralove-Piletice, Czech Republic: (note it ends July 5; the following 3 weeks showed nothing unusual; last week’s data is not in yet (or data gapped):


Compare (Note the dates!) to this 3.5-month pasted-together EURDEP record from outside Antwerp @ Hoevenen, Belgium, ending on Aug 5 (with uptick), and also including “the event” of April 2016:


[Added later]: Another look at Ozalp, Van, Turkey (in mountains bordering Iran), past 6 months:


–> This COULD be an example of delayed fallout from the April event, blowing over this area from mid-May to mid-July, including spikes over 5µSv/hr, as well as various data gaps.    If that’s the case, there’s a possibility that the spike in Hungary is part of the same delayed fallout whiffs.

[Added later]:After the major uptick in March, the trace detactions of Cesium-137 quieted down in far-northern Finland, though “the April event” seems to show up here as well.  Then nothing, until just now.  6 months of Cs-137 @ Ivalo, Finland:


A look at some BETA monitors (all beta, not just T-BETA-ART, which is the more interesting, but less monitored-for):

Besides a data gap in the Gamma radiation record in mid-June, just the other week on July 26th, the highest BETA spike @ Kursk, Russia since Sept. 2015 was registered, with a Beta-data-delay or data gap since July 30th:


Some Romanian Beta monitors quit streaming daily averages on July 11:


While others showed relative upticks in past few weeks:


Slight uptick in Southern Poland as well:


(more data added later, see further below, as well as in the previous post)

My Take: I think much of the disturbances are delayed effects of the major nuclear accident in April (2016), at what would be a still-covered-up mystery location (lots of documentation in the previous few months of blog posts), OR an also-hushed major underground fission flare-up @ Fukushima-Daiichi’s ongoing Full-On-China-Syndrome out-of-control Nuclear Catastrophe.

The signature on the Hungarian monitor, however, hints of a more local radiation very recent release, most likely a European (Slovakian? Spanish?) Russian? Ukrainian?   …???) incident or accident compounding this already very unsettled radiological landscape.

Added later in the afternoon on Friday Aug 5, 2016  (US Mountain Time):

Blog Traffic Statistics tell me where interest comes from.  And when there’s no interest from Hungary when it’s mentioned in the subject line, that would be odd.  Maybe it hasn’t been up long enough, but… in the past “blog traffic” has added intrigue.  For instance, after pointing out that the Helsinki Cesium-137 spike may have been a decoy for a much bigger story, blog traffic from Finland dropped to zero. (May 28, 2016: Finland, U still there? *)  When I documented evidence of the Ukrainian NPP @ Zaporizhia having released a significant radioactive cloud, traffic from Ukraine dropped to zero.  (Dec. 5, 2014: “Access Denied” – Blog Blocking Confirmed !)

Anyhow, thought I’d mention it, cause obviously something’s happening, and just as obviously it’s not part of “all that’s fit to print” for mainstream media outlets… ;-/

Granted, my blog was “playing opossum”, but still, maybe there’s clues in the areas with zero blog traffic.  ‘Cause they just so happen to be exactly the countries I just wrote about again (network outage in Slovakia, major weird spike in Hungary in particular; spike at Macedonia,…):

Blog Traffic 7 days before Aug 5 2016

For what it’s worth, if anything…

Aug 6, 2016 ADDITIONS:

3 months, ending Aug 6:


6 months, ending Aug 6:


Below: 1 week data from the spiking monitor and 3 others close to it in Hungary (as accessed on Saturday Aug 6, 2016 11am Mountain Time (in Colorado, USA):


! –> this illustrates that nearby monitors showed upticks or went into “data gap mode” (likely to hide what would otherwise look like a spike)

Since I see some interest from Poland, here are some 3-month graphs from some Polish monitors:


In no particular order:



A bit over a year of data from Ploeé, Croatia (on the coast) shows all the elevated fallout periods very well:  From late Sept. 2015 into November; early January 2016; mid-February and the onset of march; around April 24, mid-June, and just now.




A “Swiss cheese” year @ Siklos, Hungary:


 — [Monitor in data-gap mode from early Nov. 2015 till Feb. 17th, 2016…] —


Or, in other words, “You call that monitoring?”

Alright… And thát IT, for now, until I see something that truly gets me going again.
