[The Voice of Russia] Cs137 in Pacific ocean 500~800km from Fukushima, “10 times higher than norm”

Russian scientists find radiation off Fukushima coast

Russian scientists have detected radiation in the north-west of the Pacific Ocean at a distance between 500-800 km to the east from Japan’s troubled Fukushima-1 nuclear power plant.

The expedition of the Russian geographical society has detected that the concentration of cesium-137 in that area exceeds the norm 10 times.

This is the first time when concentration of cesium 137 was found in the local sea waters while the air is clean.

The level of radiation near the Russian coast is normal.

In March 2011, a powerful earthquake and tsunami caused a nuclear disaster at the Fukushima-1 NPP.

[The Voice of Russia] Le Cs-137 est “10 fois plus haut que la normale” à 500~800 km de Fukushima dans l’océan Pacifique

Des scientifiques russes ont trouvé de la radioactivité au large de Fukushima.

Des scientifiques russes ont détecté de la radioactivité au Nord-Ouest de l’océan Pacifique à une distance entre 500 et 800 km à l’Est de la centrale en crise de Fukushima-1.

L’expedition de la Société Géographique Russe a détecté que la concentration de césium-137 de cette zone dépasse de 10 fois la normale.

C’est la première fois qu’on trouve une telle concentration de césium 137 dans les eaux locales alors que l’air est propre.

Le niveau de radioactivité près de la côte Russe est normal.

En mars 2011, un puisant séisme et un tsunami avaient provoqué la catastrophe nucléaire de la centrale nucléaire de Fukushima-1.



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.
