Tellurium132 reached Chigasaki in March 2011-[OVER SCALE]

Related to this article..Settlement report 6/1 ~ 6/3/2012

Kanagawa prefectural institute of public health published the data of radiation contained in air, tap water, fall out in 2011.

The monitoring post is located in Chigasaki, 275 km away from Fukushima.(Further than Tokyo)

Tellurium132 fell in Chigasaki in March 2011


According to their report, on 3/22/2011 (Rain), 9500 Bq/m2 of Iodine 131 fell off only within a day.

Also, significant sum of Tellurium 132 fell off from 3/16/2011. (I personally tool a day off this day.) The highest reading was 4000Bq/m2 on 3/22/2011 as well.

Tellurium 132 is produced when fuel clad is damaged by meltdown etc. Half life time is 3.3 days, turns to be Iodine 132.

Additionally, the hot particles in airborne dust were over scale on 3/16/2011. (I was staying at home this day.)

Tellurium132 reached Chigasaki in March 2011-over scale2

The data indicates 78,000 mBq/m3 of Te-132 but because the radiation concentration was too high, this is only the provisional value.

3/16/2011 was a sunny day but it was very windy.

About this site

This website updates the latest news about the Fukushima nuclear plant and also archives the past news from 2011. Because it's always updated and added live, articles, categories and the tags are not necessarily fitted in the latest format.
I am the writer of this website. About page remains in 2014. This is because my memory about 311 was clearer than now, 2023, and I think it can have a historical value. Now I'm living in Romania with 3 cats as an independent data scientist.
Actually, nothing has progressed in the plant since 2011. We still don't even know what is going on inside. They must keep cooling the crippled reactors by water, but additionally groundwater keeps flowing into the reactor buildings from the broken parts. This is why highly contaminated water is always produced more than it can circulate. Tepco is planning to officially discharge this water to the Pacific but Tritium is still remaining in it. They dilute this with seawater so that it is legally safe, but scientifically the same amount of radioactive tritium is contained. They say it is safe to discharge, but none of them have drunk it.
