The News That Matters about the Nuclear Industry Fukushima Chernobyl Mayak Three Mile Island Atomic Testing Radiation Isotope

Breaking! Sellafield, the BBC and EURDEP lie to cover up contamination incident! Irish coast hit!

Thanks to http://www.facebook.com/SouthWestAgainstNuclear for the heads up

Some thoughts on the likely scenario concerning the latest emergency at the Sellafield nuclear site.
I have been asked to make some comment on the possible problems that have occurred at Sellafield where the workers had to reportedly don gas masks and vacate the site.. with evidence of widespread contamination in the charts below.

Sellafield nuclear site

During some investigation last year of air quality issues during the worst pollution incidents in the UK for some years (Yep! During the Oilympics too! Shhh!)(reported on the Kings College pollution watch website) . The Air had an isotopic quality during these incidents which likely caused Lead poisoning in some wild birds.. The isotopic content came from nuclear waste, Medical and Nuclear Power plants from the UK and Europe..

Going by the evidence thus far:

I managed to access EURDEP radiation monitoring and got proof that the system (meant to be used by the emergency services in the case of an accident) has been switched off.. this was normal practice and the map developer in Italy was never informed of these switch offs and was surprised when I talked with him last year.. the other main server is in Germany and that is where it was likely switched off from, not the Italian server.. The German nuclear lobby is still strong.

This graph shows the UK monitoring switch off that is not present on the Irish graphs below!

Data points for above graph showing increases and last data point are given below..

The Chart above I accessed shows some movement from after midnight on the morning of the 22 March 2013 and he chart is finally switched off at 12 noon on the 22 March 2013
(It Is normal for most European countries to ignore radon peaks and some actually scrub them of the charts others like CRIIRAD show them but make a note to say it is “Normal radon” its not easy to tell the difference) In this case the plume cleared the UK but hit Ireland to some degree or other on the 21st March 2013.

Here are the Irish charts I managed to access showing varying degrees of light contamination hitting Ireland from early on the 21st that proves that Sellafield was outputting large quantities of radioactive  gases for some time..

ChartImg1.axd

Concerning the actual levels shown on these graphs, you will find them lower than what you would measure with a Geiger counter as the averaging software that is used hides a multitude of sins.. the same situation is found in Fukushima Japan.

The clouds of radon are hitting the few working monitors randomly but the timing of the hits is most relevant here I believe. What about the locals near the Sellafield site the Gamma dose levels must be high there? Children and Foetuses are at most risk in these short sharp radiation dose hits!

The Low level wind chart shows the wind blowing to the north west and its possible some has moved down the channel as the east coast of Ireland shows a higher reading on the coastal monitoring stations. but the whole of Ireland looks like it is getting a hit. Some radiation monitoring stations are turned off in Ireland.

The winds taking the main plume out to the Atlantic are likely to bring this contamination back to either Ireland or even the UK as there is a moving LOW pressure zone west of Ireland

I was initially unable  to access the gamma measurements after the initial find, as the German EURDEP crowd have blocked any further access to this data.. ( a sure sign of dodgy goings on and possibly more accurate proof than the mostly dysfunctional EURDEP mapping system), However a little trick I employed allowed me continued access even though the main EURDEP map was blocked, hence the graphs.

So the likely scenario is that the wind conditions have caused the gases that flow up the smoke stacks to come down to the ground instead of rising up and away towards the “civvies”. The gases have likely swamped the site and although they had to wear masks there “is no danger to” David Cameron and his friends!

However the same may not be said of the workers .. some of whom may need to take a dose break leaving Sellafield understaffed and this may pose a “significant” danger to David Cameron and his friends.

Down-drafts, from Stacks are rare but DO occur. As an aside this scenario where a down-draft causes local site contamination is the only time that the official IAEA ring a round the nuke plant actually sort of works. In most cases the plume lands a distance away from the plant, leaving the local area relatively clean. These down-drafts are likely the cause of local leukaemia in children and cancers in adults. Even Radon is nasty.

They may be packing plutonium in Glass (vitrification) and one hopes that they have not released any plutonium waste products.

Some nuclear PR from the BBC here… if you want to support the BBC click rate click on link! 🙂

The Sellafield nuclear reprocessing plant has been shut down because of severe weather conditions.

22 March 2013 Last updated at 20:58

BBC

“There is no reason to believe that there will be any off-site nuclear, environmental or conventional safety issues associated with the incident. The priority for the team is to protect our workforce, the community and the environment.”

Sellafield Ltd said the move, which came as snow and high winds affected the county, was to allow staff to leave early and get home safely.

It said the shutdown was nothing to do with the work at the site and there were no safety issues.

Spokesman Karl Connor said: “This is purely a safety issue because of the high winds and snow we want our 8,500 workers to go early and get home safely.”

I WAS GOING TO POST THE GRAPHS LIKE ABOVE BUT THE PICTURE FORMAT HAS BEEN CHANGED?? THEY ARE QUICK.. DAMAGE LIMITATION??  NO MATTER heres the urls 🙂

You will need to plat around with the date range.. In the top left corner is a drop down.. set it to 1 week and then 1 month.. and then youve become a net nerd!! 🙂

  1. “In 2016 the EU has placed a ban on Burning nuclear waste.”
    Should that possibly read 2006?

    • thank you for pointing this out.. i have just woke up and can not find the link i thought it was on.. i will leave the comment there for now, just in case someone else has information.. otherwise later i might have to remove that statement.. it was a long night and i had one version of this deleted.. the subs recieved 2 versions but only one got to wordpress?? so it was a very long night posting for me!! 😦
      thank you for your critical feedback..

      to confirm the 2016 burning stops comment is likely wrong!

  3. Did you know the levels for the graphs on Eurdep on the 21st are like 0.12 in microsieverts etc? Thats about background for me 🙂 The Eurdep graphs are gamma only so it wouldn’t show any radon decay just the daughter isotopes?

    • hi craig
      hope you are well!
      the eurdep measurements are going to be lower than your gieger measurement.. especially in the uk..
      if you have a 0.12 mcSv/h background it would be worth looking into . the increases on uk eurdep are unusual as they have the averaging software aettings set over a long period and take out the peaks as Normal radiation as do criirad.. this is standard practise and leaves a nice straightish line.. to see anything on a uk monitor is rare because of this and only some of the monitors react to high peaks etc..

      radon is high in gamma.. the daughter products are largely gamma and beta ,, the hottest stuff is lost in the first 5 hours or so.. leaving beta and a little gamma..

      hope that answers your points the monitors in the uk only measure gamma unlike other european countries..
      hope that answers your points
      peace

      • Hey Arclight,

        I’m fine thanks, how’s everything where you are? Is the blogging craft keeping you out of trouble?

        I didn’t know Eurdep had averaging software, so that makes sense that those peaks are unusual and might show something going on..

        I’ve always seen UK monitors low, so this makes sense.

        Thanks Arcie
