To wit, from the Asahi: "Iodine 131 detected in Tokyo hit 12,000 becquerels
, compared with the previous day: a tenfold increase in both radioactive Iodine and Cesium
As for Hitachinaka City, which according to SPEEDI has seen a surge in radiation over the past 24 hours, things are far worse: "Hitachinaka City, Ibaraki Prefecture, saw the highest radioactive values recorded, with 12,000 becquerels of cesium, iodine and 85,000 becquerels
." Per Asahi (google translated): http://tinyurl.com/63txq2a
Ministry of Education, under the influence of Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant accident, announced the results of such measurements with radioactive dust fell from the sky.
Tended to increase mainly in metropolitan areas. 5300 becquerels per square meter of cesium in Shinjuku
, Tokyo 137,3 detection of iodine 131 becquerels 12,000
, compared with the previous day, rose about 10 times
the concentration of both. The values ??that affect health, but prolonged monitoring is needed.
Measurement of radioactive fallout, we put the nation at 9:00 am on October 22 from 9 am to 21 the ministry, were analyzed.
The value of Tokyo, yesterday's Cs 560 Becquerel, Becquerel 2900
soared from iodine
. Announced value of the cesium 22, 8 / 1 40,000 becquerels
of radiation controlled area reference value, iodine
value, amount to five quarters.
The values ??of cesium
in other municipalities, the 1600 Becquerel Saitama City (790 becquerels day)
, Kofu, 400 becquerels
(the non-detection), Utsunomiya 440 becquerels
(250 becquerels same), and rose across the board.
The day before, in Hitachinaka City, Ibaraki Prefecture, the highest values ??were recorded, although down slightly, 12,000 becquerels of cesium
, iodine and 85,000 becquerels[/u]
, still higher values ??are recorded. Fukushima and Miyagi can not be measured.
In the east, where it snowed a lot of rain and dust and floating in the atmosphere, believed to have dropped radioactive material. The short half-life of iodine, 8 days half-life of cesium in 30 years
, continue serving after getting off the ground a long period of radiation. Soil and water, because it could lead to radioactive contamination of agricultural products, should continue to monitor future.Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant, nuclear fuel damage
– detected six times the standard Iodine

12:30 pm, Monday, March 14, 2011. Air dose rate on site (outside the reactor building) was 3,130 at around 9:30pm
We believe the 3,130 figure means 3,130 MicroSievert/hour, which would be highest reading yet recorded—about 310 millirems/hour
