They explain it is due to the battery beside the monitoring machine to shield radiation. They are going to rebuild 675 monitoring posts.




Il governo giapponese ha ammesso che il livello di monitoraggio delle radiazioni indica il 10% in meno del dato reale

Il 7/11/2012 i quartieri generali che gestiscono l’incidente nucleare hanno ammesso che le cabine di monitoraggio poste all’interno e intorno alla prefettura di Fukushima indicano un livello di radiazioni il 10% più basso di quello vero.
Hanno spiegato che è dato dal fatto che la batteria della macchina fa da scudo alle radiazioni. Ricostruiranno 675 cabine di monitoraggio.

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.
