Quick question that I never see posted or have yet to read.
What about all the places East of Japan?....I always hear about the things across the Pacific towards the West but nothing East...Does radiation not
go in that direction or does the Ocean just move west?
Sorry and thanks in advance.
The low altitude local winds are quite random, and will go north, south, east, west depending on time of day, season etc. but the jetstream is west to
east, with snake-like fluctuations-- but, west to east because of the rotation of the Earth.
Thus the school closures in Korea and so on. As the radionucleides go global, west to east, eventually they end up.... back where they started from,
and cross into the Southern Hemisphere... and pretty soon, monsoon enters the equation... basically, given enough time, this goes everywhere.
And if you're lucky, your yellow snowball is only, well.... you know.
here's the ocean currents: PACIFIC CURRENTS
