Radiation level offshore Fukushima river increased to be 95 times much as 1 month before


According to Tepco, the radiation level of sea ground soil jumped up by 950% from November to December in 2012.
The sampling location was 2km offshore of Ukedogawa in Namie machi, where is in 4~5 km north from Fukushima plant.
It was 25Bq/Kg in November, it was 2,370Bq/Kg in December.

Le niveau de la radioactivité au large de l’embouchure du fleuve Fukushima est devenu 95 fois plus fort en 1 mois


Selon Tepco, le niveau de radioactivité du fond de la mer est monté de 950 % entre novembre et décembre 2012.
Le lieu d’échantillonnage était à 2 km au large d’Ukedogawa dans Namie machi, qui est à 4~5 km au nord de la centrale de Fukushima.
C’était à 25 Bq/kg en novembre, c’était passé à 2 370 Bq/kg en décembre.


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.
