[Mystery] Cs-134/137 concentration is higher in the leaked water than the leaking tank

About 300m3 of contaminated water leakage, Tepco published the Cs-134/137 concentration data of the tank on 8/26/2013.

From their report, 44,000,000 Bq/m3 of Cs-134 and 92,000,000 Bq/m3 of Cs-137 were measured from the water stocked in the leaking tank.

However, 46,000,000 Bq/m3 of Cs-134 and 100,000,000 Bq/m3 of Cs-137 were measured from the leaked water on 8/19/2013.

The water leaked from the tank, but Cs-134/137 density is lower in the tank than the leaked water.

Tepco doesn’t make any explanation about this.






You can ignore the truth but the truth won’t ignore you.

[Mystère] La concentration en césium 134/137 est plus forte dans l’eau de la fuite que dans la citerne


Tepco a publié le 26 août 2013 des données sur la concentration en césium 134/137 de la citerne qui fuit.

Leur rapport dit qu’ils ont relevé 44 000 000 Bq/m³ (44 millions) de Cs 134 et 92 000 000 Bq/m³ (92 millions) de Cs 137 dans les eaux de la citerne.
Or, le 19 août 2013 ils avaient relevé 46 000 000 Bq/m³ (46 millions) de Cs 134 et 100 000 000 Bq/m³ (100 millions) de Cs 137 dans les eaux de la fuite.
L’eau a fuit de la citerne mais la concentration du Cs-134/137 est plus faible dans la citerne que dans l’eau de la fuite.
Tepco n’en donne aucune explication.

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.
