2,000 Bq/Kg from marine soil 6km offshore Fukushima, over 1,000Bq/Kg at 20 locations / The further, the higher

High level of Cesium-137 is concentrated in offshore “hot spots”, NRA (Nuclear Regulation Authority) reported on 6/13/2014.


They measured 2,000 Bq/Kg of Cs-137 (excluding Cs-134) 6km offshore Fukushima plant. This is 20 times much as food safety limit in Japan.

Additionally they measured over 1,000 Bq/Kg at approx. 20 locations 4km offshore area.


The report reads, the further you go from Fukushima nuclear plant, the higher the radiation level goes. However, because they didn’t survey further than approx. 32km offshore, it is not clear how far the contamination spreads.

The survey was implemented from 12. 2013 to 3. 2014. The samples are the surface marine soil (3cm depth) taken by towing.

2 000 Bq/kg dans les fonds marins à 6 km au large de Fukushima, plus de 1 000 Bq/kg en 20 endroits : plus on s’éloigne, plus c’est chaud


La NRA (Nuclear Regulation Authority) a rapporté le 13 juin 2014 que les grandes concentrations en césium 137 du large se sont rassemblées en “points chauds”.

Ils ont relevé 2 000 Bq/kg de Cs-137 (SANS le  Cs-134) à 6 km au large de la centrale de Fukushima. C’est 20 fois la limite de sécurité alimentaire japonaise.
De plus, ils ont relevé plus de 1 000 Bq/kg sur environ 20 lieux à  4 km au large.

On lit dans le rapport que plus on s’éloigne de la centrale nucléaire de Fukushima, plus la radioactivité augmente. Néanmoins, on ne sait pas jusqu’à quelle distance la radioactivité se disperse parce qu’ils n’ont pas été échantillonner à plus de 32 km au large.
Cette exploration a été faite entre décembre 2013 et mars 2014. Ils ont échantillonné la couche de surface du fond marin (3 cm d’épaisseur) récolté par une traine.

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.
