We post stories about the the Great 3.11 Disaster that occurred in Northern Japan in 2011.

Radioactive water leak at Japan plant, other sources of information

leave a comment »

1) Path of radioactive water leak at Japan plant unclear
“Radioactivity is quickly diluted in the ocean, and Edano said the
dump should not affect the safety of seafood in the area.”

2) The Greenpeace research plan:

MOFA’s limited approval of the research application, which was
presented through diplomatic channels by the Dutch authorities:

3) Samples were analysed by:
ACRO – France
Certified by the French Nuclear Authority ASN

SCK CEN – Belgium
Nuclear Research Centre of Belgium, equivalent to JAEA

4) Raw data from detailed analysis of samples is available here:

5) Greenpeace condemns move to raise radiation exposure levels for
Japanese children:
Greenpeace has criticised this controversial revision of regulatory
standards, which only accounts for sources of external exposure –
radioactive materials can also be ingested, inhaled or absorbed
through the skin. Any increased exposure consequently also increases
the risk of developing cancer and other radiation-related illnesses.

6) TEPCO discovers radiation levels 100 to 1,000 times higher than
normal in sediment from the Fukushima coast:

7) For example eating one kilo of highly contaminated seaweed sampled
by Greenpeace could increase the radiation dose by 2.8 milliSievert –
almost three times the internationally recommended annual maximum.
