Various northern European countries are reporting slightly increased levels of caesium 134 & 137, cobalt 60 and ruthenium 103 in the air.
(The reports I have seen so far are only in local languages, not in English.)

Do prevailing winds suggest possible sources? Are these likely fission products? They seem to be on the exotic side.

They are certainly human-made.
The Dutch authorities currently think it may come from a damaged fuel rod at a nucelar power plant.
They say the data so far suggest somewhere in or around the Baltic sea as a possibility,
but they do noy have enough measurements to be sure.

Thanks, Nick. So the situation is not seriously threatening as things appear right now.
