[Possible blasted substance]12 mSv/h of γ&β surveyed on the surface, “Tepco doesn’t announce α dose for some reason”

In the evening of 7/8/2013, Tepco finished transferring both of the pieces.

From their announcement, the surface dose (γ&β) was 12 mSv/h on (A) and 4.7 mSv/h on (B). α dose to suggest the presence of Plutonium and Uranium-235/238 was not announced.

The reason of not announcing α dose is not commented.

The substances have high density of β nuclides but the nuclide analysis has not been completed yet.

Dans la soirée du 8 juillet 2013, Tepco a terminé le transfert des deux débris.

Dans leur communiqué, la dose en surface en γ & β est de 12 mSv/h pour (A) et 4,7 mSv/h pour (B). La dose en α pouvant indiquer la possible présence de plutonium et d’uranium 235/238 n’est pas donnée.
Aucune raison n’est donnée à l’absence de résultat en radiation α.
Les substances ont beaucoup de β nucléides en concentration mais l’analyse des nucléides n’est pas encore terminée.

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.
