[Video] 0.53 μSv/h still measured beside a river in Kashiwa city Chiba

A Japanese citizen measured the radiation level in Chiba prefecture on 10/12/2015 and posted the footage on Youtube.

The measuring location was Ohorigawa-river in Kashiwa city.

It is approx. 190 ~ 200 km from Fukushima plant, 30 ~ 35 km to the center of Tokyo.

The atmospheric dose was 0.25 ~ 0.30 μSv/h at about 1m from the ground.

It jumped up to 0.40 ~ 0.53 μSv/h on the sand beside the river.

[Vidéo] Toujours 0,53 μSv/h sur les berges d’un fleuve de la ville de Kashiwa dans Chiba


Dans la préfecture de Chiba le 12 octobre 2015, un habitant japonais a relevé la radioactivité et en a publié la séquence sur Youtube.

Le lieu des mesures est le long du fleuve Ohorigawa dans la ville de Kashiwa.
C’est à environ 190 – 200 km de la centrale de Fukushima, à 30 ~ 35 km du centre de Tokyo.
La dose ambiante est de 0,25 ~ 0,30 μSv/h à environ 1 m du sol.
Elle monte jusqu’à 0,40 ~ 0,53 μSv/h sur le sable de la berge du fleuve.

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.
