Alamosa, Colorado – August 16, 2016
First a sampling of US Radnet data (Aug. 1 – Aug. 16, 2016), and then some more EURDEP data, including documentation of the spike in Slovania. And a couple snapshots of independent networks as well.
US EPA Radnet:
Just south of there, @ Duncan, BC on Vancouver Island, Canada, via independent monitoring network http://radmon.org/: since about August 10, the record is spiky, erratic and with a data gap:
Remember the spike in Hungary last week [See (Aug 6, 2016) + 5.4 µSv/hr Radiation Spike in Hungary]. Now that it’s past (aside from data gaps), here’s 3 months:
And here you can see how high that spike went again:
Now: the Slovanian spike, with its preceding 6 months ‘context’:
10,000 µSv/hr anyone?
When you put the past 3 months of both monitors next to eachother, you get yet another example of data gaps almost certainly hiding data when it matters most:
So how bad was it really in Slovania?
This radioactive messy mystery is obviously ONGOING…
Some more EURDEP radiation graphs…
6 months from Mustvee, Estonia:
6 months @ Barcelona, Catalonia:
6 months @ Oviedo, Spain:
Not much choice, but some independent monitors on the Iberian peninsula show unusual spikes this past month as well; example from Portugal:
Back to 3-months per monitor:
Suuk Sara, Greenland, and all the way south @ Qaqortoq, Greenland – Note here again as well: an uptick Qaqortoq followed by disturbances this past week, with some lower-than-usual values, precisely when @ Nuuk an uptick is followed by 5+ days of data gap:
Which way was the wind blowing over Greenland? This could possibly provide a clue as to where this lastest radioactive cloud came from…
The beginning of the uptick @ Nuuk is July 9… I picked 12:00 UTC to run a Nullschool wind map, @ 250 hPa (as the wind layers below are very quiet and there isn’t much to see):
Wind at jet stream height via Nullschool @ https://earth.nullschool.net/#2016/08/09/1200Z/wind/isobaric/250hPa/orthographic=-142.46,107.04,512
screenshot with some annotations:
To see where the wind may have come from, I turn the globe a bit, @ https://earth.nullschool.net/#2016/08/09/1200Z/wind/isobaric/250hPa/orthographic=-172.11,70.60,512
And mark a range within which “the spewing source” may be found…:
–> To hit the west coast of Greenland (narrow circle, top right), the air was delivered from… a rather large range of possibilities… The possibilities include Northern Japan, (not so much Korea or China), Russia, (not India), and then you’re back in Eastern Europe… Also unlikely to have come from some NPP in the US or Canada.
Interesting, though, when you ponder the Juneau, Alaska data gap… Here’s the Juneau and Colorado Springs data gaps together:
For a fallout-cloud coming from across the Pacific this makes sense: it hits Juneau first, fans out and disperses while blowing over the US and Canada, to leave some upticks and data gaps (probably hiding spikes that fall outside the “no levels of concern” zone the corrupted Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has been strickly enforcing since the Fukushima-Daiichi nuclear catastrophe began in spring 2011…)
So… a look at Aug. 7, 2016 wind at 250 hPa…
See… this is interesting… It does look like it came from across the Pacifix, yet in this case it looks highly unlikely to have come from Fukushima:
So, you got to turn the globe again to look at Eurasia – @ https://earth.nullschool.net/#2016/08/07/1200Z/wind/isobaric/250hPa/orthographic=-288.71,59.70,512
and there you see the jet stream flying north of Hokaido, and two bands coming together over far-northern China. The southern band could be picking up stuff from as the Middle East, the northern band from the UK, and everything in between includes over 200 nuclear power plants, most of them in Europe, but also possibilities in the Ukraine, Armania, Iran, etc.
If it came from China, some monitors in Japan would at least show ‘something’, right? Like @ Hino, Tokyo, Japan ( http://park30.wakwak.com/~weather/geiger_index.html ). Past month, pretty much northing to be seen:
Same for Taiwan: looks fine…
To wrap it up: I can’t figure it out.
It is clear that something HUGE happened, leaving what looks like suggestive evidence of a major nuclear meltdown event somewhere in the Northern Hemisphere, in the first quarter of this year (2016), followed by odd detections, data gaps, disturbances and spikes. That much is clear. But if it’s many incidents/accidents compounding each other, or ONE very troubled spewing source remains impossible to ascertain with an already very limited public radiation record full of omissions. And if it were all coming from one source, figuring out WHERE exactly this massive nuclear disaster is ongoing, seems to be beyond my sleuthing capabilities, for now.
Anyhow. I guess it is yet another one of those blog posts that maybe some day could help solve this puzzle. A nuclear cover-up is in full swing. We know that much. That is massive, possibly on par with Chernobyl-1986 or Fukushima-2011 is quite possible. Where it happened remains unclear. That Fukushima is still fissioning, and we’re seeing increasing evidence of this, cannot be ruled out either. Though the latest round of upticks, particularly as seen on Eastern European and some US monitors could be a seperate event from the off-the-charts April event.
