    Three weeks into the crisis radioactive decay is circling the globe. sensors are collecting radioactive decay all over the world in Maryland and Virginal. Analyzing of dust will help scientists determine whether the partials blew from a tested bomb the damaged nuclear reactor or use uranium fuel.
    ?After March 11 earth and [[GLOBAL WIND CIRCULATION (Windy)#|tsunami]] damaged Fukusnima a nuclear site, global sensor network began lighting up all over the world. Clouds started carrying radiation over some parts of the world like Iceland. This radiation has caused an alarm. The EPA and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and experts say that the radiation detecting outside Japan is far too low to affects humans.
    Natural radiation has been spotted in the US sensors that measure radiation would be useless in nuclear forensics. Modern dectors do much more. They out – line the dust distinctive radioactive finger prints by measuring precise concentration of five or more radioactive elements or isotopes. Each atom other than isotopes is unstable called decay by measuring the form of intensity of this energy you can identify the isotopes in play and deduce form then what might have happened.
    The radiation that was picked up all over the world has got the by global wind circulation. Also a jet stream helped the movement. There are global winds all over the world. Some of these winds blow over japan toward the west. These winds carry the radiation partials toward the west which lead to the radiation hitting the US and affecting us.

    Even though we do not always feel pressure changes, our bodies are able to detect fast changes. For example, when flying in a plane and increasing height quickly, our ears may "pop". This is due to low atmospheric pressure.
    {Atmospheric_Pressure_3.jpg} A Barometer (shown above) measures air pressure.
    {Atmospheric_Pressure_2.jpg} Isobars drawn on a weather map to show high and low air pressure areas
    {atmospheric_pressure_image.jpg} As we climb higher, there is less force pushing down upon us, which is why atmospheric pressure always DECREASES with height!
    {hot-air-balloon-atmosphere.jpg} As you move through levels of the atmosphere, the air has less air mass above it. Therefore pressure decreases.

    Title-Description of a Related Newsworthy EventDescription of a Related Newsworthy Event
    For six days in January 1998, freezing rain coated Ontario, Quebec and New Brunswick with 7-11 cm (3-4 in) of ice. Trees and power wires fell and utility poles and transmission towers came down causing massive power outages, for some a month. It was the most expensive natural disaster in Canada.The ice storm of 1998 directly affected more people than any other previous weather event in Canadian history.
