“Fear of the atomic cloud”

Spiegel Online

The German news website Spiegel Online has published an interactive map showing the results of research conducted by the University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences, Vienna, and the Austrian Institute for Ecology into fallout from possible nuclear accidents in Europe. “In case of a nuclear accident, the risk [of being affected] will depend heavily on the gravity of the accident and on the prevailing meteorological conditions”, the article says. The map therefore could not accurately predict accident risks, “but it can inform the debate with scientifically-based estimates”, the authors write.
