Leaked all β of “300m3 leakage accident” was also underestimated / INES level might be increased
Following up this article.. INES classification of Fukushima accident may increase from Level 7 + 3 due to the revelation of wrong analysis [URL]
The samples about 300m3 leakage accident was also mis-analyzed, according to Tepco. The spokesman stated in the press conference of 2/12/2014.
They found the major leakage of highly contaminated water in August of 2013. 300m3 of contaminated water was assumed to have leaked, and it possibly contained 24,000,000,000,000 Bq of β nuclide to include Strontium-90. (cf, [Tank leakage] 300m3, 24,000,000,000,000 Bq of all β nuclide released / still keeps leaking [URL 2])
Based on Tepco’s explanation, the wrongly analyzed data can be less than 1/10 of the actual readings. Thus the total volume of leaked all β nuclide can be over 240,000,000,000,000 Bq/m3.
In the end of August, NRA (Nuclear Regulation Authority) classified the accident as INES Level. 3 in addition to Level. 7 of Fukushima accident itself.
Having the fact that they underestimated the leaked volume of all β nuclide clear, it is becoming likely that Fukushima accident may be classified as Level.7 + more than 3.
En suivant les explications de Tepco, les données erronées peuvent se situer en dessous du 1/10e du réel. Donc, le volume total en radioactivité β peut avoir dépassé 240 000 000 000 000 (240 000 milliards de) Bq/m³.
A la fin août, la NRA (Nuclear Regulation Authority) avait classé l’accident comme étant de niveau 3 INES. Un 3 ajouté au niveau 7 de l’accident de Fukushima en lui-même.
Sur la base du fait qu’ils ont clairement sous-estimé le volume de la radioactivité β, il devient probable que l’accident de Fukushima doive être classé en 7 + plus de 3.
Minimiser les choses au départ et ajouter l’information petit à petit pour que personne ne la remarque. Tout faire pour que le troupeau ne s’échappe pas. C’est leur stratégie.
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.
