La région de Kanto subit toujours le double de séismes par rapport à avant le 11-3


Le Pr. Toda de l’université de Tohoku rapporte que la région de Kanto est toujours deux fois plus secouée par les séismes qu’avant celui du 11-3.

Selon ses recherches, dans la vaste région qui entoure la baie de Tokyo, entre février 2015 et février 2016, la fréquence des séismes est restée au-dessus du double de ce qu’elle était avant celui du 11-3. Dans certaines régions c’est cinq fois plus qu’avant le 11-3.
La fréquence avait diminué au bout d’un an après le 11-3 mais sur ces 4 dernières années elle n’a pas diminué. Il affirme qu’un séisme majeur pourrait toujours très bien survenir dans la région de Kanto.


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.
