Colorado Rocky Mountains – July 26, 2017 (data pulled 24th or late 25th)
“Three months till winter…” :-)
All public SOURCES I use listed on these pages:
(Some overlap/repetition from previous data blogposts. In no particular order:)
- Four monitors in the UK that stood out this past week:
Huelva, Spain is a monitor that has ninja-dot-like data phenomenon (See May 2, 2017: The “Ninja Dot” – Reading Between The Lines: a EURDEP gamma graph detail), where, in this case, there seems to be a subset of data dangling from the bottom line of the layered predominant data values. Perhaps I should come up with another name for that one, as it is definitely different from the ninja dots that hide between two lines (as more commonly seen on UK monitors – see some above). Below: Sloth dots? ;-) Got a whole branch full of ’em here; notice how low one swung the other day:
- Saw a zero value at Zaventem, Belgium (home of the Brussels Airport) on the 24th…
But so it goes in radiation data land, the next day that part was omitted:
Data gap in Zaventem, shortly after another zero-value @ La Hestre, however:
No idea if that’s a calibration or a “glitch dot” pair / spike @ Muehlheim-Kaerlich, Germany:
Another fairly randomly picked German monitor: lower-than-usual values around May 15th and a data gap amidst disturbances in mid-July:
All these, below, were pulled on July 25th, 2017:
- Three from Slovenia: @ Vnajnarje, we see the drop-down values flanking a data gap in July, and a small data gap again around that time of the curious detection all the way north in Finland (See May 20, 2017: BREAKING: Ruthenium-103, Cobalt-60, Niobium-95 & Cesium-134 Validated Detections in Finland, Cesium-137 Uptick, Artificial BETA upticks in The Netherlands and Italy, as yet another Mystery Radiological Disturbance rolls across Europe… (EURDEP, MAY 2017));
The other one, @ Ljubljana-Vic had a 1.7µSv/hr spike at the end of Vnajnarje’s data gap:
I picked another randomly nearby: @ Ljubljana-Brinje-Ijs:
Two in Croatia:
- Kladovo, Serbia, 6 months:
- Novi Sad, Serbia, 3 months:
- Two in Bulgaria (which is in “data gap mode” (or delayed data publication) since July 21st, at time of checking):
- Italy remains a land of data gaps…:
- Kirikkale, Turkey once more:
- Cesium-137 @ Sodankyla, Finland:
- Cs-137 and Iodine-131 @ Nicosia, Cyprus:
- The data from Ukraine is practically useless (See (Aug. 11, 2016) Ukraine brings 150 Radiation Monitors Online @ EURDEP (+ 1 year @ Limnos, Greece)), which also includes example of the “down is up” phenomenon.
- And last but not least, Kefalonia, Greece: a month after the +7µSv/hr spike: Look “how pretty”… It’s snowing happy glowing particles! “;-)” which magically stop at 10 nSv/hr…
- If you think a 7µSv/hr dose rate spike (above) is still pretty much meaningless / insignificant, perhaps check (Jan. 15, 2015) Gaging Recent Radiation Spikes: How do the Recent Gamma Upticks Compare to those Observed after Chernobyl?
- For a +10,000 µSv/hr spike (see Kladovo, Serbia example above), my little theory is that a hot particle struck the monitor directly. See (Nov. 24, 2013) The Dose Deception – Why 0.20 µSv/hr (from fallout) can be far more dangerous than 2.00 µSv/hr (from cosmic rays). The inverse square law for ionizing radiation illustrated. for additional insights.
That’s it again.
For your left ear:
I have no idea why I do this…
