Here is some more information here:


Either way, looks like a coverup to me.

This doesn't add any more significant details, but contains some interesting wonderings about what might have been tested etc.

Not exactly surprising either, will be interesting to follow this.
russia might be forced to come clean, much like chernobyl after radiation was detected overseas.

From the enmnews.com article:

On Thursday, Norway’s radiation and nuclear safety authority said it had detected tiny amounts of radioactive iodine in northern Norway.

But such traces waft across from Russia half a dozen times a year, from old nuclear tests or leaks, rendering it impossible to determine the origin, the agency said.


I thought this sounded strange as (I thought) Iodine 131 is only released during an actual nuclear reaction. Whether it is a power station or a weapon, Iodine 131 is a dead giveaway for either a Uranium, Plutonium or MOX nuclear reaction. It has a half life of about 8 days and as such is pretty much untraceable after about 30 days so I found it strange they report "such traces waft across from Russia half a dozen times a year". As it happens Iodine 131 is also used in gas pipeline testing for testing the integrity of pipelines so is a possibility of these wafts being from the gas industry, and Russia is big on natural gas.
