Tepco still represents radiation readings 90% lower than actual in the new English survey map
On 6/6/2013, Fukushima Diary reported “English version of Fukushima plant survey map shows atmospheric dose lower than Japanese version by 90% [URL]”
On the survey map released on 6/18/2013, Tepco still showed different readings in Japanese and English.
In English version, the atmospheric doses on the east side of reactor3 and 4, and also the west side reactor1 are represented as 1/10 of Japanese version. Comparing the readins with Survey map of area around buildings released on 5/24/2013, Japanese version is highly likely to be correct.
The survey was conducted on 6/4~5/2013.

↓ English version. The blue marked readings are represented to be 1/10 of Japanese version.
La mise à jour du 18 juin 2013 de cette carte, Tepco montre toujours des valeurs différentes entre les versions anglaise et japonaise.
Dans la version anglaise, la dose ambiante à l’est des réacteurs 3 et 4 et à l’ouest du réacteur 1 sont toujours au 1/10e de la version japonaise. En comparant avec les relevés des alentours des bâtiments du 24 mai 2013, la version japonaise est certainement celle qui est correcte.
Les relevés datent des 4 et 5 juin 2013.
Je ne vois aucun espoir dans l’ancien régime japonais
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.
