Iodine-131 (131I), a radionuclide of anthropogenic origin, has recently been detected in tiny amounts in the ground-level atmosphere in Europe. The preliminary report states it was first found during week 2 of January 2017 in northern Norway. Iodine-131 was also detected in Finland, Poland, Czech Republic, Germany, France and Spain, until the end of January.
Iodine-131 is a radionuclide with a short half-life (T1/2 = 8.04 day). The detection of this radionuclide is proof of a rather recent release.
Besides the iodine release, the origin of which is still unknown, the poor dispersion conditions due to the thermal stratification [1] of the atmosphere also affected the observed concentration levels, including those of naturally occurring radionuclides such as Lead-210 (210Pb) [2], or fine particles (PM2.5 and PM10) leading to pollution episodes, particularly in the Western part of Europe during week 4 of January.
It must be pointed out that only particulate iodine was reported. When detectable, gaseous iodine is usually dominant and can be estimated to be 3 to 5 times higher than the fraction of particulate iodine.

    Eh? Fukushima released plenty of I-131, some of it very recently and the polar jet stream could have carried the radiation into the arctic in under 48 hours.

    But sure lets blame Russia.

    No, but Isrehell, did in Syria. Doubt it not. This be BillyP. Don’t jew it up.

    The radiation spike was first noticed in Norway and then traveled south towards other European nations. If it was from Japan it would have ended up in Alaska and the west coast. But the origin of this radiation appears to be another source that is in the Arctic region. If anyone gets any other updates and reports please share them here so we can watch this development closely.
