Radiation in Seoul
Disclaimer: In case the concepts of nanotechnology, microorganisms or energetic waves are strange to you, this post will be a freakshow.
As a positive germaphobe I believe in the workings of micro systems that make up our world. Even though we cannot see them, tiny organisms are there and can have major effects on our lives (I learned a lot in my German Abitur classes).
So I like to poke around a bit and catch some of the invisible. I share this passion with a collaborator. Mr Gamma Scout is always there to assist me. In fact he is doing the dirty work, measuring radioactive waves why I simply document the measurements.
Here are glimpses of our work in South Korea, in Seoul. If you like to be able to read Mr Gamma Scout, this post will give you all the infos. To make numbers of radiation more accessible, I will give short comments about radiation to each pic.
1st June 2013. Incheon International Airport. Radiation is doing average.
Same spot at the airport. Radiation is showing normal fluctuation.
Again same spot. Radioactive values are rising (slightly above average) before going back to normal.
15th June 2013. At our Gwangnaru metro station. One level underground. Radiation is average.
15th June 2013. Jongmyo Shrine. Radiation is (slightly) increased.
15th June 2013. Bukchon Village. Radiation is (even more slightly) increased.
16th June 2013. Hyehwa Station. Radiation is average.
Same spot, values have increased slightly. Again, jumping values are a normal phenomenon.
19th June 2013. At Namsan mountain. 1,150 meters below the Seoul Tower. Radiation is average.
24th June 2013. Our residential building showed (slightly) increased radiation. We see that a lot in high rise buildings which is probably due to various radioactive building materials.
I hope you enjoyed a glimpse into the world of the unseen!
