Highly contaminated water still keeps leaking to the sea


Mr. Aoyama from Meteorological Research Institute analyzed the decreasing speed of cesium in the ocean. He talks highly contaminated water is probably still leaking to the sea because the decreasing speed of cesium is too slow.
Tepco put water glass medical fluid to stop water leakage last April. They state the cesium level has decreased drastically since last March. The decreasing speed of cesium is slow in these 3 or 4 months, but they don’t think the contaminated water is still leaking.

On 3/6/2012, Yomiuri newspaper reported that Mr. Miyazawa from Japan Agency for Marine-Earth Science and Technology calculated about 5,600 tera Bq of cesium 137 has leaked to the sea, which is 6 times as much as Tepco’s data.
However, it’s only cesium 137, not including cesium 134, and it’s the leaked amount by 5/7/2011.

The entire situation of marine pollution is not known yet.
