UPDATE IODINE 131 detected in EUROPE, JOD
There is a full halo Earth directed Solar Coronal Mass Ejection inbound, estimated to impact on the 1/21/12. The CME event will interact with high atomic weight fallout (both radioactive and NON-radioactive) in the upper atmosphere and produce a witches' brew of new radioactive fallout via nuclear spallation processes. The extent to which this will occur is difficult to determine without access to advanced simulation models, however previous such occurrences have correlated with the detections of radioiodines over Europe.
If the expected effects do occur, they will be most strongly be felt on the sunlit side of the planet. The evidence for such effects would be distributed and difficult to localize detections of fresh radioactive fallout. On the dark side of the planet the effects would produce unusual colors in the Northern Lights and greater penetration into the Southern Latitudes. An early arrival of effect should not be ruled out either.
