Modeling the dispersion of radioactive releases into the atmosphere on a global scale - March 30, 2011
Modeling the dispersion of radioactive releases into the atmosphere globally - Update March 30, 2011
From the estimated releases from IRSN, France Weather modeled the atmospheric dispersion of radioactive releases from great distances. This model has been updated and it can project the dispersion in air releases of the accident Fukushima worldwide, until 1 April 2011.
Since March 12, 2011, the plume resulting from discharges from nuclear reactor accident at the Fukushima moves, while thinner, air currents in the northern hemisphere. The IRSN has a model of this dispersion, in collaboration with Meteo France, which allows it to monitor and anticipate this shift (see below).
According to this model, the plume was covered in the day on Friday, March 18, 2011 the greater part of North America and north-eastern Siberia. He then turned over the North Atlantic and reached mainland France March 23, 2011.
The expected concentrations of cesium 137 in the air over the territory swept by the plume are extremely low. This radionuclide is representative of radioactive material released long-distance during a nuclear accident.
These concentrations are too low to be detected by the 170 beacon alert network Téléray IRSN, whose measurements are available on the website of the IRSN.
The French Institut de radioprotection et de sûreté nucléaire (IRSN) ("Radioprotection and Nuclear Safety Institute") is a public official establishment with an industrial and commercial aspect (EPIC) created by the AFSSE Act (Agence française de sécurité sanitaire environnementale - French Agency of Sanitary Environmental Security) and by the February 22, 2002 decreed n°2002-254. The IRSN is placed under the conjoint authority of the Defence minister, the Environmental minister, the Industry minister and the Health and Research minister.

Watching this thread with your credibility True American...I am flagging and starring.
Is this a projected fallout map, or an actual map of radiation such as
Cesium, Iodine, Plutonium?
