Potential dispersion of the radioactive cloud over The Northern Hemisphere | surface radiation

Potential dispersion of the radioactive cloud over The Northern Hemisphere

Go To Original

This animation displays a potential dispersion of the radioactive cloud (Caesium 137 Isotope) after a nuclear accident in reactor Fukushima I. The continuous release rate is very uncertain, thus the calculations have to be interpreted qualitatively. Dispersion in the near surface level (Level 1), in appr. 2500 m height (Level 12) and in appr. 5000 m height (Level 16).
