(UPDATED) (Now They Tell Us) Highly Radioactive Pieces Found in Naraha-Machi in June/July 2013 Came from #Fukushima I NPP, TEPCO Now Says


(UPDATE-2) Of all news outlets, it was Yomiuri who reported the news (two days late) and mentioned the last remaining potential route for the debris pieces - Reactor 3 explosion. From Yomiuri Shinbun (2/24/2014):

原子炉建屋の水素爆発で飛び散ったのか、海から流されてきたのかなど、理由は不明という。

The reason [why the debris pieces were there] is unknown; they could have been scattered by the hydrogen explosion in the reactor building, or they could have come from the ocean.


This news continues to be mostly ignored by both the mainstream media and the alternative net media. Very strange.

==========================

(UPDATE 2/13/2014) The only news I've found so far about these debris pieces in Naraha-machi is from FNN local Fukushima news. Even that news hides the fact that the radioactivity of maximum 2.92 million becquerels of radioactive cesium IS PER 0.4 GRAM SAMPLE.

==========================

Specifically, four small pieces of debris found at the river mouth in Naraha-machi 15 kilometers from the plant may have come from Reactor 3.

The first piece of debris were found in June 2013, but TEPCO didn't mention the discovery until July after three more such high-radiation pieces were found. Even then, they published a half-baked result of the analysis, which was nothing more than the measurement of gamma radiation and beta radiation in microsieverts per hour. (See my post on July 2, 2013 for the first discovery.)

TEPCO disclosed the result of the analysis of the debris done by Japan Atomic Energy Agency (of Monju fame) during the regular February 12, 2014 press conference, and no major news outlet has reported the news so far. Only bloggers took note. (I suppose the mainstream media is busy educating themselves on the intricacies of the State Secrecy Protection Law, even though it hasn't gone into effect yet.)

According to TEPCO, the pieces of debris were not only highly contaminated with radioactive materials released from Fukushima I Nuclear Power Plant but they actually, most likely came from the plant. The degree of contamination from radioactive materials found on the small pieces of debris is similar to that on the debris found around the Reactor 3 building.

From TEPCO's handout for the press, 2/12/2014 (in Japanese):

Very high contamination from cesium-134, cesium-137, and presence of cobalt-60 (in blue rectangle, added by me). Note the unit is Bq per sample, not kilogram. For example, Sample No.3 (0.4 gram) has 2.0 x 10^6 Bq, or 2 million becquerels of cesium-137:


Very high all-beta:


But the composition of radioactive materials (ratio) on the debris pieces shows almost all radioactivity comes from cesium-134 and cesium-137:


Radioactivity of the debris pieces, compared to those of the debris around the Reactor 3 building and of the soil in Naraha-machi and neighboring Hirono-machi. The debris pieces have about the same order of magnitude of contamination as the debris around Reactor 3 for cesium-137, and one to three orders of magnitude higher contamination for cobalt-60. Unit is Bq per gram:


What are the debris pieces made of? Polyethylene, polyolefine, wood:


TEPCO and JAEA's conclusion:

1. These small pieces of debris came from Fukushima I Nuclear Power Plant, most likely from the Reactor 3 building.

2. The high-beta radiation found on the pieces are not from beta-nuclides but from beta radiation from cesium-134 and cesium-137, judging by the composition of the radioactivity.

3. How they got to the river mouth is unknown. It could be by the ocean, or by land. The analysis is inconclusive on that point.

As far as incurious TEPCO goes, this is the end of the analysis. There will be no further analysis whether there is any contribution from MOX fuel that was in the Reactor 3's Pressure Vessel.

During the press conference, TEPCO's PR people could barely answer the questions on this issue, other than to say this was done by JAEA.

Not a surprise. FD3 underwent detonation, not deflagration. In all likelihood large amounts of hugely radioactive materiel was scattered over a very wide area. These fragments mentioned in the article are MONSTROUSLY RADIOACTIVE to the point of being immediate life threatening health hazards.

There are MANY more fragments like these awaiting to be discovered, just like there are MANY more oncological disasters just waiting to be catalogued.

The moral depravity of those who continue to downplay this disaster knows no bounds.

I am very surprised that there has been ZERO coverage of this news in the media, and even those people who have followed the accident are not aware of it.

News outlets are busy reporting tens of thousands of Bq PER LITER of cesium, while completely ignoring millions of Bq PER GRAM.

Town of Naraha is no longer in the exclusion (no entry) zone. People are free to return, and are encouraged to return.

How this stuff came to be 15 km from its source would seem to be a matter of some urgency. If it was flotsam and jetsam that floated in from the sea then there should be many more such samples found given the extensive water sampling done in the area. However, the descriptions also mention being encrusted with dirt which might be analyzed to determine 'dirt' from where. Narahamachi or Fukushima. One would not expect dirt from Fukushima to still be clinging to debris after a year or so floating around off the coast. It its dirt from Fukushima then one may have to conclude highly radioactive material is hitching a ride on vehicles leaving the plant or some of the more unsavory contractors hired for the cleanup are just illegally dumping debris where it is most convenient.

Anonymous said...

TEPCO said the plastic pieces looked to be packing materials used at the plant. Presence of cobalt-60 indicates contamination came from inside the reactor. The debris hitching the ride from the plant doesn't make much sense, as the pieces were found in the mud by the river mouth (i.e. no road). They do have exit control at the plant, checking radioactivity of the vehicles leaving the plant. If the highly radioactive debris were illegally dumped, you would expect much bigger pieces, instead of 0.4gram piece.

That leaves one possibility.

The MOX fueled FDU-3 reactor explosion, produced: orange flame, supersonic detonation, black smoke, fuel vaporization and scattering as well as induced Gamma (Γ) radiation in structural metals and the concrete rubble. These signs and symptoms characterize neither hydrogen nor steam explosions.

The FDU-3 March 14 detonation was therefore a prompt criticality, also known as an atomic explosion or nuclear blast.

Let's End ALL the Shakedowns

Civilian Nuclear Power (AKA Atoms for Peace) has proven to be a dangerous and uneconomic experiment. Malthusians have been fear-mongering for decades about ‘peak-oil’, ‘global-warming’, ‘climate-change’, and the like, with no supporting objective evidence. Biomass gimmicks, windmills and solar voltaic are not now and NEVER WILL BE, viable technical or economic solutions to global energy and/or power challenges. The AC electrical grid is an inefficient, expensive, wasteful and disaster-susceptible 19th century RELIC. It is time to scale-down these wasteful, costly and fanciful: initiatives, subsidies, taxes, programs, industries and myths.

Natural gas and LPG are plentiful, clean, efficient and economic. Distributed energy conversion, using natural gas and/or LPG, with heat-recovery systems, are INHERENTLY: efficient, safe, CLEAN, economic and disaster-resistant. LNG and LPG are also PERFECTLY suited to clean and efficient transportation applications.

Don't want to burst your bubble too vigorously, Bill, but I believe global warming is lurking right behind your dismissal of it.

"Faster-than-normal trade winds may have been the previously unknown mechanism for hiding heat in the ocean. England’s team incorporated these unusually intense winds into global climate models. In the model, as the winds sped up over the Pacific Ocean in the ’90s, they forced warmer surface water down. Cooler, deeper water then flowed to the surface. The results of the models closely matched the real world’s climate change plateau.

“Unfortunately, however, when the hiatus ends, global warming looks set to be rapid,” said England. “We should be very clear: The current hiatus offers no comfort -- we are just seeing another pause in warming before the next inevitable rise in global temperatures.”

And those currents are pumped by wind.
And are only perceived as "pausing" due to the artifact-laden nature of human conceptualization.

Whatever is driving Greenland upwelling has no regard for "pausing".

Climate modeling is infinitely more complex than weather modeling (meteorology). Weather predictions are usually fairly accurate for about 6 days max. And yes, as a former pilot, I can read a weather map and studied meteorology.

The rest of the 'new ice age', 'global warming', 'climate change discussion is fantasy, 'agenda-based-pseudo-science' and product salesmanship.

Actual SCIENCE requires more than fraud by East Anglia University and the NASA Climate Unit. SCIENCE requires accurate data, and rigorous mathematics rather than 'diddled data'.

I visited Alaska recently and listened to Tribal Elders discuss a COOLING event. A glacier advanced toward their ancestral home, at the speed of a running dog. Their ancestors had a VERY short time to abandon their village.

There is NO doubt that the Earth HAS BEEN much hotter and much cooler than today in geologic time.

I FULLY expect that going forward in geologic time that the Earth WILL AGAIN be much hotter and much cooler than it is today.

Climate Change is the geologic and historical NORM. However, we have NOTHING but demonstrated pseudo-scientific FRAUD to indicate ANTHROPOMORPHIC skewing of that ROUTINE climate variation, toward a hotter future or a colder future.

In other words, "Bill" will deny climate change is occurring at an accelerated pace until, voila, it is upon us & overwhelms. Then "Bill/FDR" will exit stage left and "the Navy" will obscure their roles, complicitous, permitting, and benefiting [from brain-embuggering all who attempted to correct the course].

The interested reader is advised that deductive logical flaws, in such forums, are generally INTENTIONAL. Deductive logic is a classical field and many of the most common logical fallacies have very old, Latin names. If an argument is logically flawed, then the author of that argument is often quite stupid, whether he got into that 3rd rate law school or not.

Inductive Logic is more modern and correlates fairly well with the scientific method and cogent statistical models.

But of course most engineers, mathematicians and scientists moved on to Boolean Logic, (computers & 0-1) decades ago. The point being, only a particularly STUPID liberal arts freshman and CAREER LIARS are plagued by repeated OBVIOUS logical fallacy errors in their arguments.

Diddled Data,

The NASA Climate Unit and East Anglia University moved the Mini Ice Age back and the hottest years forward. The DATA was diddled. Apparently the original data sets were discarded. It seems LIKELY that, at least a few partial sets of the original data are extant.

That data recovery effort would be a good place to BEGIN. Of course it would necessitate firing a few lying-whores; to initiate a CREDIBLE re-entry to the actual scientific method.

We SHALL NEVER get there, until we BEGIN the journey.

New monthly extent records were set for each month between August and November, and December was tied for the record (within the limits of the precision).

Preliminary measurements from CryoSat show that the volume of Arctic sea ice in autumn 2013 was about 50% higher than in the autumn of 2012. In October 2013, CryoSat measured approximately 9,000 cubic kilometers (approximately 2,200 cubic miles) of sea ice compared to 6,000 cubic kilometers (approximately 1,400 cubic miles) in October 2012.

Thermodynamics instructs engineers upon the fundamental efficiency limitations and conditions. We are governed by the Laws of Physics; but our understanding of Physics is still quite limited.

We are constantly required to update our UNDERSTANDING of physics and thermodynamics, as the cleverness of men plumb the height, and depth and breadth of the vast realms of physical reality.

Generally speaking combustion produces heat and expansion. An efficient energy conversion process uses BOTH the heat and the expansion to the fullest extent that is economically and technically feasible.

Generally speaking EFFICIENT thermodynamic machines have a WIDER temperature range than a machine with a narrower heat range.

So a hotter fire and a hotter boiler will improve efficiency as will a colder exhaust and a colder turbine final temperature.

Turbine Generators with a secondary water-steam boiler are efficient because they burn hot, use gas expansion and heat, and exhaust at about 800 degrees F. They can be made more efficient with another stage which uses a lower temperature fluid to operate a next-stage turbine. Such technologies are available 'off the shelf' and are HIGHLY cost efficient and environmentally friendly. Only stupidity and corruption have us trapped with inefficient machinery.

It does not have to be that way.
