Strontium-90 measured from sea offshore Fukushima and Ibaraki
Strontium-90 was measured from sea water offshore Fukushima and Ibaraki according to MEXT.
The sample was taken last October and November.
Strontium-90 is from nuclear reaction, known to cause leukemia.
From 2008 to 2010, the measurement reading was from 0.00091 to 0.0014 Bq/L.
This time, all the readings are over the historical normal range.
Du strontium 90 au large de Fukushima et d’Ibaraki
Du strontium 90 a été relevé dans l’eau de mer du large de Fukushima et Ibaraki, selon le MEXT.
L’échantillonnage a été réalisé en octobre et en novembre.
Le strontium 90 ne provient que des réactions nucléaires, il est connu pour provoquer des leucémies.
De 2008 à 2010, les relevés s’étageaient entre 0.00091 et 0.0014 Bq/L.
Cette fois, tous les relevés sont au-dessus des niveaux historiques.
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.
