The address of the location is announced by the city as: 柏市根戸字高野台457番3地先. According to the residents, the place is a strip of open space between the residential area and the industrial area, and is used as playground by many residents, young and old.. On receiving the result of the analysis, the Ministry of Education and Science, who had expressed doubt that this high radiation spot in Kashiwa had anything to do with the Fukushima I Nuclear Power Plant accident, now says it cannot deny that it is the result of the accident. The ratio of cesium-134 and cesium-137 is consistent with the radio from the accident.. Some speculate that someone in the city cleaned out his house and dumped the resulting radioactive sludge and dirt in this location.. What I find it odd is the mismatch of the radiation on the dirt surface, 57.5 microsieverts/hour, and the density of radioactive cesium, maximum 276,000 becquerels/kilogram. The density is too low to account for the extremely high ...
Contaminants Released, Chernobyl. A retrospective view of the Chernobyl accident of Apr 26, 1986 assesses the total radiation release at about 100 megaCuries or 4 x 1018 becquerels, including some 2.5 MCi of cesium-137. The cesium is the most serious release in terms of long term consequences. The total release was around 4% of the total accumulated activity of the core and compares to a release of 15 Ci at Three Mile Island. The release was then about 7 million times that at TMI. Anspaugh, et al. suggest that essentially all the noble gases and about half of the volatile elements (iodine-131, cesium-134 and cesium-137) were released. The cesium release from all of the atmospheric weapons tests is estimated to be about 30 MCi. The noble gas releases were estimated by Levi to be 45 MCi of xenon-133 and 5 MCi of krypton-85. About 3-5% of the core inventory of the relatively refractory elements such a strontium, plutonium, and ruthenium were released, much more than from a light water reactor ...

Radioactive fallout from the Chernobyl accident affected parts of central Norway to a considerable extent, in particular the 134Cs+137Cs deposition had a significant impact on the natural environment. When this became apparent, a comprehensive radioecological research programme was initiated in order to study the behaviour of radiocaesium in boreal and alpine ecosystems, with emphasis on food-chains leading to exposure of species used for human consumption, i.e., reindeer and freshwater fish. In this paper results from the terrestrial part of this research programme during the period 1986-1990 are presented. The work was mainly confined to the mountain areas of Dovre and Rondane. Parallel studies were performed in eutrophic and strongly oligotrophic communities. The influence of local variations in topography and microclimate on the observed radiocaesium levels in topsoils, lichens and vascular plants was studied in detail. Currently a significant re-distribution of radiocaesium from the ...

In an unprecedented food monitoring advertising campaign for radionuclides, japan government took action to secure food safety following the Fukushima nuclear incident (Mar. decreased quickly then, once again in Sept 2011 but peaked, which was mainly because of boar meat (a known accumulator of radiocesium). Tap water was less contaminated; any restrictions for tap water were canceled by April 1, 2011. Pre-Fukushima 137Cs and 90Sr levels (resulting from atmospheric nuclear explosions) in meals had been typically less than 0.5 Bq/kg, whereby meat was typically higher in 137Cs and vegetarian generate was usually higher in 90Sr. The relationship of history radiostrontium and radiocesium indicated which the regulatory assumption following the Fukushima incident of a optimum activity of 90Sr getting 10% from the particular 137Cs concentrations may shortly be in danger, as the 90Sr/137Cs proportion increases as time passes. This should be studied into consideration for the existing Japanese meals ...
RE: CBS, a complicated ownership arrangement. KPIX may still be owned by Westinghouse, builder of nuke plants). This might explain the Fuku-denialism & denial of radiation in West Coast waters of the U.S. Controlling interest now held by one individual. Fr. Wikipedia:. In 1994, Westinghouse signed a long-term affiliation deal to affiliate all five of its Group W TV stations with CBS.[113][114] Of the other four stations, two of the stations (KPIX in San Francisco and KDKA-TV in Pittsburgh) had been decades-long affiliates of the network, while KYW-TV in Philadelphia and WBZ-TV in Boston were NBC affiliates. The network decided to sell off existing O&O WCAU, which would eventually be purchased by NBC, despite at the time being much higher rated locally than KYW-TV. While WJZ-TV and WBZ-TV switched to CBS in January 1995, the swap was delayed in Philadelphia when CBS discovered that an outright sale of channel 10 would have forced it to pay massive taxes on the proceeds from the deal. To solve ...
On 2/7/2015, Tepco announced they detected a rapid increase in Cesium-134/137 level of groundwater.. The sample was taken from Reactor 3 seaside.. According to Tepco, the Cesium-134/137 density was 1,390 Bq/m3 from the previous analysis on 2/4/2015. However it increased to 23,200 Bq/m3 from the test of 2/6/2015, which is 17 times much as the previous reading.. This is the highest reading from this well.. Reactor 3 seaside is surrounded by underground wall to isolate from the sea. However this boring well is located outside of the wall.. The rapid increase in Cs-134/137 density strongly suggests the possibility that contaminated water overflowed the underground wall. However Tepco hasnt even mentioned the wall in their announcement.. Also on their daily report, Tepco hasnt updated this highest level of the density either.. http://www.tepco.co.jp/cc/press/2015/1248022_6818.html. http://www.tepco.co.jp/nu/fukushima-np/f1/smp/2015/images/2tb-east_15020701-j.pdf. ...

Description: Crystalline silicotitanate (CST) is an ion-exchange method for removing radioactive cesium from tank waste to allow the separation of the waste into high- and low-level fractions. The CST, originally developed Sandia National Laboratories personnel in association with Union Oil Products Corporation, has both a high affinity and selectivity for sorbing cesium-137 from highly alkaline or acidic solutions. For several years now, the U.S. Department of Energy has funded work to investigate applying CST to large-scale removal of cesium-137 from radioactive tank wastes. In January 1997, an expert panel sponsored by the Tanks Focus Area met to review the current state of the technology and to determine whether it was ready for routine use. The review also sought to identify any technical issues that must be resolved or additional CST development that must occur before full implementation by end-users. The CST Gate Review Group concluded that sufficient work has been done to close ...
Watch the Video. In 1998, a company co-founded by Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) retiree Lane Bray, an internationally recognized expert in medical isotopes, came to PNNL for technical assistance. The company, IsoRay Medical, Inc., now produces Cesium-131 radiochemical brachytherapy seeds used in facilities across the country to treat prostate and other cancers. The Cesium-131 seed offers a significantly shorter half-life than the two other isotopes commonly used for brachytherapy, allowing faster delivery of therapeutic radiation to the prostate gland, reduced incidence of common brachytherapy side effects, and lower probability of cancer cell survival. IsoRay literally started in Lane Brays basement, with about three employees, said Larry Greenwood, the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) technical lead for the IsoRay project. In 1998, Bray, a PNNL retiree and internationally recognized expert in medical isotopes and Don Segna, a retired engineer, formerly with the ...

Several critical decisions had to be made to reach this day. Some were simple. For instance, Helix 6.2 will not support Classic at all. Helix 6.1 marks the end of Classic Helix. Its really a no-brainer. If your Helix application requires you to use a Classic Engine, RADE or Client, Helix 6.1.9 is the tool for you. It will let you run in macOS, but it will still allow you to use Classic on those machines in your workgroup that must do so.. Other decisions were not as simple. The decision to make Helix AppleScriptable was such a decision. We knew it had the potential to put off a significant part of the user base, but it was the simplest and fastest way to make Helix RADE in particular work in macOS and the option with the most legs.. The Macintosh is now a well-established and serious business machine in lots and lots of industries. And being able to run Windows on a Mac has spurred additional Macintosh sales. With AppleScript playing an increasingly important role the Macintosh, Helix being ...

One of the most infamous symbols of life-threatening pollution is the Chernobyl reactor, which suffered a meltdown in April 1986. To this day, the settlements closest to the reactor site remain depopulated ghost towns; however, the explosion sent a radioactive cloud over most of Europe, and many regions received a fallout level that, while not quite serious enough to require permanent evacuation, is still more than enough to blight local ecosystems and human communities with radiation poisoning. 110 miles away is the region of Bryansk, of which nearly 2 million acres received a heavy dose of fallout pollution, primarily Cesium-137. Hundreds of thousands of people still inhabit this largely agricultural area, and the greatest danger they face is the ingestion of radioactive particles (or radionuclides) that have accumulated in the meat, fat, and milk of local cattle, as well as the produce from local farms and gardens. In some provinces over 20% of all dairy milk is dangerously contaminated. ...
3.2 Internal Exposure Monitoring. Personnel who work at workplaces or environment of which the present of unseal sources or contamination is confirmed are required to undergo internal exposure monitoring. Working with contaminated environment and improper way of working with unsealed sources might lead to intake of the radioactive material which results in internal contamination. The ingress of radioactive materials into the body is through ingestion, inhalation, skin and open wound. In order to assess the intake of radioactive substance in the body, a special instrumentation is used.. Two common methods used to measure internal contamination are direct method and indirect method. Direct method commonly used in whole body counter while indirect method in bioassay. Direct method is a method where the radiation dose is measured directly using measuring instruments. In the other hand, indirect method will require samples namely urine, faeces or sweat. These samples will be analyse in laboratory to ...

With current news of additional radioactive leaks from the Fukushima nuclear power plants, the impact on the ocean of releases of radioactivity from the plants remains unclear.. But a new study by U.S. and Japanese researchers analyzes the levels of radioactivity discharged in the first four months after the accident.. It draws some basic conclusions about the history of contaminant releases to the ocean.. The study was conducted by Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution chemist Ken Buesseler and two colleagues based in Japan, Michio Aoyama of the Meteorological Research Institute and Masao Fukasawa of the Japan Agency for Marine-Earth Science and Technology.. They report that discharges from the Fukushima Dai-Ichi nuclear power plants peaked one month after the March 11 earthquake and tsunami that precipitated the nuclear accident, and continued through at least July.. Their study finds that the levels of radioactivity, while high, are not a direct threat to humans or marine life, but cautions ...
Nonessential elements enter/accumulate in trees at certain ratios via the same uptake/translocation systems as essential elements. This phenomenon may not only damage the ecosystem but also result in human health problems. As one such nonessential element, the fate of radiocesium in trees has been extensively studied after the nuclear accident at Fukushima in 2011. Here, to better our understanding of the fate of radiocesium in nature and contribute to plan countermeasures, a review based on recent data for the Fukushima accident will be explicated with historical experiences of the global fallout, the Chernobyl accident, and many laboratory studies. In particular, the effects of specific leaf ecology (deciduous and evergreen), types of radiocesium exposure (dry/wet depositions or root uptake), and decomposition of litter on the fate of radiocesium will be precisely described with a specific uptake/translocation system of potassium, which can be recognized as the most possible entrance of radiocesium
Radioactive cesium from the 2011 Fukushima disaster is still being detected in citrus and other plants as far away as Florida, according to a report sent to the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC). In March 2011, multiple nuclear meltdowns took place at the Fukushima Daiichi plant in Japan. The explosions ejected massive amounts of radioactive material into the environment, most notably radioactive cesium isotopes. In the weeks after the disaster, winds carried airborne radionuclides to every corner of the globe. Most of the radioactivity, however, settled into the Pacific Ocean.The report is Duke Energy Floridas Annual Radiological Environmental Operating Report to U.S. NRC, dated May 5. It notes that immediately following the Fukushima disaster, radioactive iodine and cesium from the plant were detected in Florida vegetation. The Japanese event also affected broad leaf vegetation sample media throughout the year as long-lived radionuclides (Cs-137) were released at Fukushima multiple ...

An experiment was carried out to provide a data set specifically designed to allow the development of a model to describe the dynamic behaviour of radiocaesium in sheep tissues. A single intraruminal dose of 134CsCl was given to each of 15 Scottish Blackface ewes, aged 1-2 years. Radiocaesium activity concentrations were measured at various time intervals after dosing in blood, faeces and urine and, after slaughter, in a range of tissues and digestive tract contents. A first order compartment model was developed comprising nine compartments representing various organs and tissues in the body. Rate constants for the model were obtained by optimisation to the experimental results. A limited validation of the model was carried out by using it to calculate tissue transfer coefficients (Ff) and biological half-lives (0.5) of radiocaesium in sheep. The values generated compare favourably with published figures. Applications for the model and constraints on its usage are examined along with ...

The researchers insisted that the levels detected so far are not high enough to be particularly dangerous to humans or marine life. As an example, even if they were twice as high and I was to swim there every day for an entire year, the dose I would be exposed to is a thousand times less than a single dental X-ray, Buesseler said.. So the risk [from radiation exposure] is never zero, but when I think of health risk, I always think of the Japanese side of the Pacific instead of ours.. Radioactive cesium from the Fukushima disaster is likely to keep arriving at the North American coast, he said. Predicting the spread of radiation becomes more complex the closer it gets to the coast.. According to a 2013 study by the Nansen Environmental and Remote Sensing Center in Norway, the main part of the radioactive ocean plume from the Fukushima disaster is likely to hit the North American west coast in 2017, with maximum concentrations of radioactivity arriving in 2018. The model showed the bulk of ...
Despite a lack of widespread media coverage and TEPCOs reassurances that things are under control, there is concern that the nuclear disaster at Fukushima - already one of the worst nuclear disasters in human history - is quickly growing even worse.. PBS News reported last year that more than 80 percent of the radioactivity from the three damaged reactors was released into the Pacific Ocean, as 300 tons of radioactive water have leaked from the reactors every day since an earthquake and subsequent tsunami crippled the plant in 2011.. The Pacific Ocean may have diluted much of the radiation, due to its massive volume, yet radiation and debris from the disaster have been detected along the western coast of Canada and the United States. Traces of Fukushima radiation were first detected in early 2015, when trace amounts of cesium-134 and cesium-137 appeared in samples collected near Vancouver Island. Then, in December of last year, researchers at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution detected ...

An estimated 14,000 excess deaths in the United States are linked to the radioactive fallout from the disaster at the Fukushima nuclear reactors in Japan, according to a major new article in the December 2011 edition of the International Journal of Health Services. This is the first peer-reviewed study published in a medical journal documenting the health hazards of Fukushima.Authors Joseph Mangano and Janette Sherman note that their estimate of 14,000 excess U.S. deaths in the 14 weeks after the Fukushima meltdowns is comparable to the 16,500 excess deaths in the 17 weeks after the Chernobyl meltdown in 1986. The rise in reported deaths after Fukushima was largest among U.S. infants under age one. The 2010-2011 increase for infant deaths in the spring was 1.8 percent, compared to a decrease of 8.37 percent in the preceding 14 weeks.The IJHS article will be published Tuesday and will be available online as of 11 a.m. EST at http://www.radiation.org .

In an unprecedented food monitoring campaign for radionuclides, the Japanese government took action to secure food safety after the Fukushima nuclear accident (Mar. 11, 2011). In this work we analyze a part of the immense data set, in particular radiocesium contaminations in food from the first year after the accident. Activity concentrations in vegetables peaked immediately after the campaign had commenced, but they decreased quickly, so that by early summer 2011 only a few samples exceeded the regulatory limits. Later, accumulating mushrooms and dried produce led to several exceedances of the limits again. Monitoring of meat started with significant delay, especially outside Fukushima prefecture. After a buildup period, contamination levels of meat peaked by July 2011 (beef). Levels then decreased quickly, but peaked again in September 2011, which was primarily due to boar meat (a known accumulator of radiocesium). Tap water was less contaminated; any restrictions for tap water were canceled ...
SIGNS AND SYMPTOMS/ /ACUTE RADIATION SYNDROME/ Fifty persons involved in the cesium-137 accident in Goiania showed symptoms of whole-body and local acute irradiation and also external or internal contamination mainly due to ingestion or absorption of cesium-137. Fourteen of the 50 developed severe bone marrow depression characterized by neutropenia and thrombocytopenia. Eight of these 14 received GM-CSF intravenously. None were submitted to bone marrow transplantation. Four of the 14 died due to hemorrhage and infection. For those with significant internal contamination evaluated by in-vitro and in-vivo assays, Prussian Blue was administered with doses ranging from 1.5 to 10 g/day. Besides Prussian Blue, other measures were taken to increase decorporation of cesium-137, including administration of diuretics, water overload, and ergometric exercises. From 50 to 100 persons are being followed in a medical protocol ...
The corporate media is again ignoring a major and potentially catastrophic development at the Fukushima nuclear plant in Japan.. Kyodo News reported on March 15 that that the clarity of water inside the spent fuel pool of the No. 4 unit may have deteriorated based on a survey conducted by a camera, according to Tokyo Electric Power Co., the plant operator.. TEPCO said visibility in the pool is only about 1 meter, far less than the approximately 7 meters needed to work at removing nuclear fuel from the pool as part of the process of scrapping the four reactors severely damaged by last years nuclear accident.. One month ago, TEPCO was able to see approximately five meters into the spent fuel pool water.. The spent fuel rods pose considerable hazard. In order to reduce decay heat, the rods must remain submerged in circulating water. If exposed to air, they combust and release large amounts of radioactive cesium-137.. Following the earthquake and tsunami that damaged the Fukushima plant last ...
is on the way.... Nature has an article about it, here are some highlights.. The risk to the roughly 140,000 civilians who had been living within a few tens of kilometres of the plant seems even lower. Because detailed radiation measurements were un available at the time of the accident, the WHO estimated doses to the public, including radiation exposure from inhalation, ingestion and fallout. The agency concludes that most residents of Fukushima and neighbouring Japanese prefectures received a dose below 10 mSv. Residents of Namie town and Iitate village, two areas that were not evacuated until months after the accident, received 10-50 mSv. The government aims to keep public exposure from the accident below 20 mSv per year, but in the longer term it wants to decontaminate the region so that residents will receive no more than 1 mSv per year from the accident.. The WHOs calculations are consistent with several health surveys conducted by Japanese scientists, which found civilian doses at or ...
Infant girls exposed in the worst-affected area also have a 6 percent higher risk of breast cancer, and a 4 percent increase in the risk of developing any solid cancer, according to the report.. A study by Stanford University scientists last year found that radiation from the Fukushima nuclear plant may cause as many as 1,300 cancer deaths globally and as many as 2,500 cases of cancer, mostly in Japan. The WHO said it didnt have estimates on the number of people affected by radiation.. […]. The nuclear plant may have emitted about 900,000 terabecquerels of radiation into the air at the height of the disaster, Tepco said in May. The total radiation release at the 1986 Chernobyl accident in Ukraine was estimated to be about 5.2 million terabecquerels.. The Fukushima accident didnt last as long as that in Chernobyl, the geographic spread of radiation was less, and people were evacuated more quickly from 20 kilometers around the Dai-Ichi plant, Tritscher said. The evacuation was probably the ...
In February 2014, the number of confirmed and suspected cases of thyroid cancer among people aged 18 or below at the time of the accident rose to 75, compared with 59 at the end of last September. Of the current total, 33 cases have been confirmed as cancer.. Local health authorities have so far tested around 250,000 out of 375,000 Fukushima children and adolescents, who are due to be screened regularly throughout their lives.. Joseph Mangano, epidemiologist and executive director of Radiation and Public Health Project Research Group, did not rule out that the next few years will see more cancer cases among children living in the disaster-hit area.. The only study I know was held in Japan and it looked at about 200,000 children near Fukushima. Medics from Fukushima Medical University tested childrens thyroid glands because they are very sensitive to such chemicals as iodine. Thyroid cancer among children is very rare, but 72 children with suspected thyroid cancer have already been identified ...
Watch Video. On Friday, 1 April 2011, the IAEA provided the following information on the current status of nuclear safety in Japan:. 1. Current Situation. Overall at the Fukushima Daiichi plant, the situation remains very serious.. The Unit 1 condenser is full. In preparation for transferring water in the basement of the turbine building to the condenser, water in the condenser storage tank is being transferred to the suppression pool surge tank since 31 March, 03:00 UTC. Water in the trench was transferred to a water tank at the central environmental facility process main building. In order to prepare for removal of the water from the turbine building basement in Unit 2, pumping of water from the condenser to the suppression pool water surge tank started at 07:45 UTC, 29 March. For Unit 3 pumping of water from the condenser to suppression pool water surge tank was started at 08:40 UTC, March 28 and was completed at 23:37 UTC on 30 March.. For Unit 1 fresh water has been continuously injected ...
