232,980 Bq/Kg from leaf mold of Fukushima forest “Out of evacuation zone”


According to Fukushima prefecture, 232,980 Bq/Kg of Cs-134/137 was measured from leaf mold.
The sample was taken from a forest located in the north of Fukushima prefecture, where is out of evacuation area.
The minimum reading was 344 Bq/Kg. The average was 22,709 Bq/Kg.
The survey was conducted from August to November of 2012.

232 980 Bq/kg dans des feuilles moisies d’une forêt de Fukushima “en dehors de la zone d’évacuation”

Selon la préfecture de Fukushima, 232 980 Bq/kg de Cs-134/137 ont été relevés dans des feuilles en décomposition.
L’échantillon a été pris dans une forêt du nord de la préfecture de Fukushima qui est en dehors de la zone d’évacuation.
La plus petite lecture a été de 344 Bq/kg. La moyenne a été à 22 709 Bq/kg.
L’étude a été menée d’août à novembre 2012.


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.
