Fukushima Uni “800,000,000,000,000 Bq of Cs-137 to reach West coast of North America by 2016”
Prof. Aoyama from Fukushima University Institute of Environmental Radioactivity reported that 800 tera Bq (800,000,000,000,000 Bq) of Cesium-137 is going to reach West Coast of North America by 2016. The amount to reach of other nuclides such as Cs-134 and other nuclides are not officially announced.
This is 5% of the total Cs-137 amount discharged to the Pacific.
Le Pr. Aoyama de l’Institut de Radioactivité Environnementale de l’Université de Fukushima a rapporté que 800 Téra Bq (800 000 000 000 000 Bq) de Césium 137 vont atteindre la côte Ouest de l’Amérique du Nord vers 2016. La quantité attendue pour les autres nucléides tels que le Cs 134 et autres n’est pas officiellement communiquée.
Ceci représente 5 % de la quantité totale de Cs 137 déversée dans le Pacifique.
(Note de Iori : C’est un rapport de l’Université de Fukushima. Les quantités réelles peuvent être supérieures à celles annoncées à cause de la pression politique cherchant à minimiser la situation réelle.)
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.
