STAY OUT OF THE RAIN
The POTRBLOG team previously predicted that winter Fukushima recriticalities would be easier to spot because the cold ground temperatures would make the ground water upwelling as radioactive steam more easily visible. In the same manner, we also predicted that these radioactive ground water steam upwellings would melt the snow surrounding them. With the predicted snow showers for the upcoming week and the on going recriticality, we should have our first strong potential for spotting this phenomena (assuming the cameras let us see it).
As unfortunate as these events are, they do provide us early warning that more Fukushima Fallout will be on the Jet Stream. We expect increased levels of readily detectable short half life radiation in rain swipes resulting from the high levels of Radon present in the ground water. These high short half life levels likely are strong predictors of high amounts of harder to detect man-made Fukushima fallout in those same rain swipes.
Suitable cost effective risk mitigation actions would be well advised.
