Report reveals highest level of radioactive xenon-133 to hit Canada
after Fukushima over 6,000% more than gov't website claims

Canadian Study: Those lacking wisdom expected Fukushima plume to
disperse before hitting West Coast -- In reality "sharp features" were
detected even after several days travel (PHOTO)

times of aerosol-bound radionuclides, May 2012: Hot particles (e.g.,
fragments of the nuclear fuel) were present in the FD-NPP plume.

Elsevier (academic publisher) -- Fukushima Accident: Radioactivity
Impact on the Environment, 2013: Paatero et al. (2012) estimated that
a significant part of the Fukushima-derived radioactivity is in hot
particles from autoradiogram of a filter sample from 1 to 4 April 2011
at Mt. Zeppelin, Ny-Alesund, Svalbard.

Poster for Alaska Marine Science Symposium (Arctic Ocean and Bering
Sea/Aleutian Islands), Jan. 20, 2014: Exposure to fallout while on ice
in 2011 [...] Models suggest pinnipeds may have been exposed while on
ice to the following: [...] Hot particles, nuclear fuel fragments,
were detected in air samples taken in Svalbard, Norway (Paatero et al.

(Paatero et al. 2012) Airborne fission products in the High Arctic
after the Fukushima nuclear accident: The plume arriving in Svalbard
did not come from Europe but directly from North America [...] [Hot
particles are] either fragments of the nuclear fuel or particles
formed by the interactions between condensed radionuclides, nuclear
fuel, and structural materials of the reactor [...] a significant part
of the activity related to Fukushima was in hot particles. So far the
authors are not aware of any other reports concerning hot particles
from the Fukushima accident. [...] radionuclides emitted into the
atmosphere were quickly dispersed around practically the whole
northern hemisphere within a couple of weeks.

significant distances -- Hot particles found in 25% of samples from
Tokyo and Fukushima (VIDEO)
