Peer Review: EU Iodine Mapping – Chernobyl

Update: Gornostaypol – reading for the 2nd was a normal spike for that station, disregard. The reading there for the 5th is a weak trend. Within normal fluctuations but a closer together pattern than normal. IE: 20 minutes vs. 60minutes to 1 full day for typical fluctuations at that station.

The map below can be enlarged by clicking the image. The numbers are the date in October that a steady increase or spike showed in the Ukraine radiation data. The system is very crude and only covers the region of the Ukraine near Chernobyl (NE). On the map if there are multiple numbers with a comma those are individual days of increases. If there is a set of numbers with a dash between those mean a continued increase for those days in between. Any location with a question mark means no conclusive spike was found, there may still be increases, just not a clear pattern. A location with a number followed by a question mark means there was a weak pattern on that day or days.  The data from the radnet website was a horrible mess at best. I was able to cut and paste it into an Excel spreadsheet but the format is complicated and wouldn’t transfer to a more web friendly format. Download the spreadsheet and open in Excel to view each location’s data column. Blue marks near entries indicate increases. The spreadsheet was used first so as I attempted to pull trends of increases I was ignorant to the location of each site on a map. As I then placed the spikes into the map some patterns developed.
