Total Fukushima Radiation Released Into Ocean, Air, Groundwater, Storage Tanks, etc

What is the Total Radiation Released Into Ocean, Air, Groundwater,Storage Tanks, etc, starting on 3/11/2011, from Fukushima Daichi, and 13 other nuclear power plants in Japan? According to a Japan Nuke Agency, 14 reactors at 4 sites were affected by the earthquake.  Fukushima Daiichi was NOT the only one. Others were negatively affected as well; Daini, Onagawa, and Tokai. How much damage did they sustain, and how much radiation did they release? Did they all melt down? http://enenews.com/us-commission-14-nuclear-reactors-at-4-sites-in-eastern-japan-were-affected-on-311-according-to-nisa-fukushima-daiichi-had-the-most-serious-damage-daini-onagawa-and-tokai-were-others/comment-page-1#comment-217193


Why is NO ONE reporting about this? Why are the nuclear experts  and regulatory agencies not demanding answers and radiation release reports, as well as reports about conditions at these plants? 


Why are there no investigative journalists researching these damaged or destroyed and melted down plants and their associated spent fuel pools? Why is there still no definite answer about the current state of these 14 reactors and 14 or more spent fuel pools at all of these nuclear power plants, approximately ONE YEAR after the accident happened?


Here is one researcher’s opinion that attempts to answer the above questions, by searching out the global information around these questions. If you have anything to add, feel free to add to the information found here in the comments section, or by contacting the author directly. 


TOTAL OceanRadiation Release

“In October, a U.S. study – co-authored by oceanographerKen Buesseler, a senior scientist at the non-profit Woods Hole OceanographicInstitution in Woods Hole, Mass., – reported Fukushima Daichi alone caused history’sbiggest-ever release of radiation into the ocean – 10 to 100 times more thanthe 1986 Chernobyl nuclear catastrophe.” http://www.montrealgazette.com/news/After%2BFukushima%2Bfish%2Btales/5994237/story.html#ixzz1jfk19Yl6

Of course, these radiation releases continue throughleaks from the basements of Fukushima,and from radiation releases from the site, so it is only getting worse. Thereis no total yet, because the disaster is not over yet and accidental ‘spills’are still happening from the Fukushimaplant, with unknown amounts ending up in the ocean..

The nuclear explosion at Unit #3 spent fuel pool blewuranium and plutonium pellets as well as particles, dust and melted fuel in aradius of up to 3 kilometers. Since the plant sits right next to the ocean,much of this highly radioactive fuel went into the ocean, and is sitting on thebottom, radiating all of the ocean water that is going by, plus all of the sealife. What Really Happened At FukushimaReactor And Spent Fuel Pool #3?

There is also the matter of what happened to the nuclearfuel that got blown out of Fukushima Reactor and/or spent fuel pool #3. Reportsfrom numerous sources say that the nuclear explosion that happened at thisbuilding blew nuclear fuel rod pieces for 1-3 miles around the plant, INCLUDINGINTO THE OCEAN. The radiation from these highly radioactive rod pieces isentering the ocean even to this day, polluting and contaminating the oceancurrents going by Fukushima, forpotentially millions of years.
The authorities have started cementing over the bay rightnext to the plant, so this may start cutting down on the amount of radiationreleased from these highly radioactive pieces of toxicity, but until they areall found, gathered up and properly stored away from all living things, theywill probably continue to cause problems with ocean radiation for tens ofthousands of years.
Could these fuel rods be the reason for the highradiation readings found by very recent ocean monitoring 20-400 miles off thecoast of Fukushima?

TOTAL GLOBAL Air Radiation Release

FUKU released 73.47 BILLION lethal doses (by inhalation)
AND 15.53 BILLION lethal doses by ingestion
88.00 BILLION Total lethal doses of alpha radiation only

UN Agency’s Fukushima Report: “The total release amountwas equal to that of Chernobylnuclear explosion” Summary Report of RSMC Beijing on Fukushima Nuclear AccidentEmergency Response, WORLD METEOROLOGICAL ORGANIZATION (United Nations), Oct. 27, 2011:


“The Fukushimadisaster has proved that nuclear industry should be controlled only by thestate and not by private companies. The outcome of this tragedy has turned evenworse than it was in Chernobyl.Graphite which was part of the reactor`s core, burnt out and vanished in theatmosphere. But at Fukushima the reactor`s core melted.” The Voice Of Russia http://english.ruvr.ru/2011/05/24/50766848.html

“Regarding the radioactive noble gas Xenon‐133, theresults indicate an emission of 16700 Peta‐Becquerel (1 Becquerel is oneradioactive decay per second, 1 Peta‐Becquerel equals 1015 Bq). This is thelargest civilian noble gas release in history, exceeding the Chernobyl noblegas release by a factor of 2.5|” http://enenews.com/just-in-nilu-study-release-of-radioactive-xenon-from-fukushima-is-more-than-double-chernobyl-largest-in-history-started-immediately-after-quakehttp://enenews.com/just-in-nilu-study-release-of-radioactive-xenon-from-fukushima-is-more-than-double-chernobyl-largest-in-history-started-immediately-after-quake

According to one expert who actually included the #3reactor and spent fuel pool blowing up, :”under the Conservative Estimate, andusing .89% Plutonium per Table 1, this would be 640 pounds of Plutoniumaerosolized.”  It only takes about 200pounds of plutonium dust distributed globally to kill everyone on the planet.This very dangerous radioactive plutonium release has been totally covered up,with very good reason. Of course, this radioactive air release is still goingon, despite claims of ‘cold shutdown’. Fukushima;Is It REALLY In ‘Cold Shutdown’? Plus; What Is The Rest Of The Story? See other blog posts from A Green Road Blog to find out the details about this.

TEPCO does not know where the melted through 65 ton corium blobs are from ANY of the otherFushima Daichi reactors 1-5. ALL spent fuel pools and reactors are OPEN TO THEAIR, and some are melted down either partially or completely, which meansradiation is coming out of melted corium, ongoing criticalities, etc. So it isnot over yet. #4 spent fuel pool is in danger of collapsing.. THIS IS NOT OVERYET.  See other blog posts from A Green Road Blog to find out the details about this.

“A recently disclosed Tepco documentation indicates totalemissions estimates of both plutonium 239 and neptunium 239 for the first 100hours of the catastrophe.  This leaked Tepco document [19] suggests arelease of 1.2 trillion bq of PLUTONIUM – p-238,p-239,p-240 and p-241collectively and 76 trillion bq of NEPTUNIUM – Np-239 within the first 100hours of the catastrophe” http://www.datapoke.org/blog/89/study-modeling-fukushima-npp-p-239-and-np-239-atmospheric-dispersion/

TOTAL Radiation In Water Stored On Site




After the tsunami and reactor meltdowns at Fukushima,  they ran out of fresh cooling water, so theybrought in a huge amount of water via a barge, that was then used up, andfilled with radioactive waste water coming out of the reactors.  They injected 10-15m³ per hour of fresh orsea water at 8 points in 4 reactors plus 4 spent fuel pools. It is now down theroad about 10 months. The total amount of water injected calculates out roughlyto 300 day`s x 24 hours x 30000- 50000 liters per day. 
By these calculations, what is the total amount of waterused? 

“The tanks were installed to contain an increasingamount of water with …radioactive substances. About 1,000 tanks contain anestimated 120,000 tons of contaminated water.“ http://www.yomiuri.co.jp/dy/national/T120227004796.htm
A dosimeter installed in the Mirai aircraft detectedradiation measuring as high as 0.9 microsieverts per hour northwest of theplant.”


In ONE YEAR, they accumulated 1000 tanks with 120,000tons of water. If this keeps on going like this for thirty years, that willmean 30,000 tanks… Are they all earthquake proof? How long will they last?How much radiation is in those? What happens if they leak? Are they guarded?What happens if a terrorist blows up some of them, or a plane crashes intothem?
Photos:


What is their volume, and what kind of radiation doesthis water contain? There is one estimate of beta radiation in at least onetank… Jiji: 5 billion becquerels of beta radiation in 10 liters ofdecontaminated water — Includes strontium and cesium January 10, 2012http://enenews.com/5-billion-becquerels-of-beta-radiation-in-just-10-liters-of-decontaminated-water-includes-strontium-and-cesium

Nikkei: Two sieverts/hr of beta radiation emitted from asingle liter of leaked water
So how much radiation does that calculate out to onsitein these storage tanks, given the above facts?

How long can they continue to do this?  They cannot release any cooling water to theocean, because the reactor cores are all leaking and the cooling water iscoming in direct contact with melted corium, which it is not supposed to bedoing in a normal reactor. Everything running through the reactors and/or spentfuel pools is highly radioactive. Plus, all of the Rube Goldberg plastic pipesare leaking continuously, and the tanks are leaking as well.

Tepco: New leak releasing enough beta rays to causeradiation sickness — Leakage in at least 30 locations found recently


10L of water leakage “500,000Bq/cm3?, Fukushima Diary, Jan. 10, 2012: http://fukushima-diary.com/2012/01/10l-of-water-leakage-500000bqcm3/
* Water leaking from the tank to storage abandoned saltywater after purifying system of highly contaminated water
* It was 10 L[iters] to leak
* It’s supposed to contained a portion of radionuclidessuch as Cesium or Strontium, which is 500,000 Bq/cm3
Conversion: 500,000 Bq/cm3 = 500,000 Bq/ml = 500,000,000Bq/liter = 5,000,000,000 Bq in 10 liters of wate

 They say this willcontinue for 30-40 years. Realistically, how long can they continue thisprocess before they are overwhelmed?

Over 100,000 tons of highly radioactive water is in thebasements of DAINI, which is down the road from DAICHI about ten miles. Bet younever heard about that either. . http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5SCD_SOl12E

TOTAL Radiation Released Into The Groundwater Under Fukushima

UNKNOWN  – Noestimates, no one studying it, no one monitoring it. So far, no one seems tocare. 

There are two main concerns. First, if the melted 65 tonblobs of highly radioactive corium got out of the 1-3 reactor buildings, andwent underground, they will be moving deeper and deeper underground.

The Fukushimasite is turning out to be much like Hanfordwith all of its cover-ups and secret spills, leaks, and underground aquifercontamination. http://youtu.be/hv73MfgZWdg

……………………………………………………………
NO ONE is counting the total of ALL OF THE ABOVE. No oneis counting or tracking ongoing radiation releases. We are NOT counting what isin the large radioactive water storage tanks on site. We are NOT countingradioactive water that went underground, or the two nuclear explosions #3reactor and spent fuel pool.. Both of these have way more tonnage of Plutoniumand Uranium MOX fuel, about 1 million times more dangerous than plain old Chernobylstyle fuel, and they went up into the air.. This is NOT in any calculations orguesses I have seen yet. 
…………………………………………………………
Under Reporting Of FukushimaRadiation Released
From video above; He found serious under reporting ofradiation levels even 100km away from Fukushima.He found radioactive Cesium at 1000 times higher concentrations in places like Tokyothan the air concentration at the peak of nuclear weapons testing fallout..This is serious fallout, but is being ignored by Japanese authorities, who arelooking only at exterior dose rates, and nothing else.
There is a very serious radioactive contamination. Therewas a place in Tokyo that hadhigher levels of radiation than in the Chernobylexclusion zone.
……………………………….
I have not seen any counts yet, that total ALLradioactive emissions from FUKU, based on realistic scenarios. NO actual datafrom monitoring equipment has been released yet. There are NO monitorsdownwind, and none on the ‘vent’ stacks.
How much radiation has been released?
Ocean
Basements
On site water storage tanks
Air over ocean, all nuclear materials, not just 2 out of100
Japanese ground
Groundwater under plant
Sprayed radioactive water on forests
Water in tanker boats, taken where????
GAS emissions
Dust emissions
Nuclear explosion(s) emissions and dust from MOX fuel
Hydrogen explosions emissions
Emissions coming from spent fuel pools
Radioactive releases from criticalities in spent fuelpools and/or hydrogen and/or nuclear explosions
Emissions going up vent stacks at all reactors 1-5?
Filter emissions filtered out of vent stack
Ongoing emissions into air, water, see above
NO ONE has yet even attempted to TOTAL ALL OF THE ABOVE…
Anything less is NOT SCIENTIFIC, and that is all that hasbeen done..
