Monitoring data of MEXT is totally incoherent

On 11/7/2012, Fukushima Diary reported monitoring posts are set to indicate radiation level 10% lower than actual. [Link]

The data is published on the website of Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology, but the scale of the graph is incoherent, the longer span you see it, the lower the reading becomes.

Location : Tonomachi Kawasakiku Kanagawa prefecture

↓ When the span is one day, the highest reading is over 0.1 μSv/h.

↓ When it’s one week span, the highest reading comes down to 0.063 μSv/h.
2 Monitoring data of MEXT is incoherent

↓ When it’s one month span, the highest reading comes down to 0.053 μSv/h.

Les données de surveillance du MEXT sont totalement incohérentes

Le 7 novembre 2012, le Fukushima Diary rapportait que les bornes de surveillance étaient installées de façon à  indiquer un niveau de radioactivité inférieur à au moins 10 % du niveau réel. [Lien]

Les données sont publiées sur le site web du ministère de l’Éducation, de la Culture, des Sports, de la Science et des Technologies mais l’échelle des graphiques est incohérente, plus la période montrée est longue, plus le niveau est minoré.

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.
