On the east side of Mt.Fuji, a new crater (Diameter 500m) appeared, where is 2200m height. Around the crater, more than 10 of the new craters (Diameter 20m~50m) were also found. The clear gas was coming up from the crater. Because the temperature is about -10℃ around the crater, the gas turns to be vapor immediately and it becomes difficult to distinguish from cloud or snow.This is where the splashing steam was found on 1/25/2012.
Dr. Kimura from Ryukyu university points out the risk of Mt.Fuji’s eruption is becoming serious.
Even after the series of the earthquake on 1/28/2012 (JST), earthquake has been happening almost every one hour until now.
Hot air is splashing at the 1500m area of Mt.Fuji since 2003. Also, earthquake has been happening right under the mountain begun with the M6.4 of 3/15/2011. These 2 points and the new crater, and the series of the earthquake have been happening exactly on a line, which suggests the strong connection among them.
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.
