Belarus

Белару́сь   –  (Republic of Belarus)

[Added on April 30, 2015, [h/t Vital1 @ http://sccc.org.au/international-radiation-monitoring-stations via ENEnews] after the reports of large radioactive wildfires near Chernobyl]

Belarus radiation monitoring @

Screenshots of value, seen on April 30, 2015 (for reference / for the record):

Zoom-in on the values seen above (in “microSievert per hour“) published on May 1, 2015 (for the record): [NOTE: the +0.020 µSv/hr uptick, significant for a daily average (which hides possible spikes), in Oktyabs and Gomel.  Whether or not that was due to the forest fire’s radioactive smoke cannot be verified without analysis of air and/or precipitation samples from that period – se also added satellite photos in the related blogpost]:

As mentioned in “More Additions”, the Belarus radiation page was temporarily disappeared.  On May 3, 2015, it’s accessible again for me, with the May 2 data posted:

The radiation level in Braqin rose by +0.03 µSv/hr, not much, but this is an average for a 24 hour period, and is likely to hide the spikes that occurred within that period.   It is unknown (to me) how high the spikes reached or which radioisotopes were present in the forest fire clouds in what concentration.

Press the Belarus government and scientists for more information.

  • Chernobyl legacy…

Of all countries, Belarus suffered the most consequences of the April 26, 1986 Chernobyl nuclear disaster, which was the world’s worst in history until Fukushima.

Cesium-137 Fallout Deposition in 1986.  The half-life of Cs-137 is about 30 years and it takes at least 10 half-life-times for the radioisotope to return to non-radioactive, leaving vast regions of Belarus uninhabitable for generations to come:
