    Hey Hillbilly, thanks for the smoke report; I started up a recording of TBS-JNN to see if we can document some of that. You say you saw sparks too; we've been looking for those. Califnative posted two sparks captured on TBS/JNN earlier this morning on CRL. http://caferadlab.com/thread-1527-post-2860.html#pid2860

  • HillbillyHoundDog HillbillyHoundDog

    So you haven't seen it yet? Adrenaline rush! Had just turned it on, saw the sparkies, then BAM!

    Noticed two blue sparks in separate videos, both in the same location the other day… funny thing, the reflection of the spark could be seen simultaneously in the u1 "window". I didn't mark or grab, but will go back and look.

    FYI third triangle over, front of u1, has a pixel over it that just stays put. Small, but consistent. This is where I think there is some sparking activity, constantly. After viewing so many videos, I am convinced they are tweaking the vids. Especially after seeing the "overlay" vids they took down…The ones from the 5th are horrible. JNN has a clearer image and it's so much further away!

    Hope someone got that "episode"…

    Onwards!

    • Horse Horse

      Haven't caught anything yet, hoping maybe Cali was recording tbs-jnn. Figuring from your EDT time, guessing your tbs-jnn event was 10-05 at 14:07 to 14:22 JST. Reporting everything in JST time helps to quickly find events on other cams. The first time I saw smoke from that area, I saw it drift by on cam4 and got tbs-jnn on in time to catch the last half of it. Adrenaline rush, yeah you're hooked.

  • HillbillyHoundDog HillbillyHoundDog

    Yeah…Thanks to a talking horse…

    08:19:05 puff of smoke from bottom area of left tower, also seen on u1 video
    08:19:43 flash- lights everything, leaves a light circular imprint in sky in the previous smoke area, just above, center of it.

    Approx. 08:17:00 two puffs of smoke bottom of u1, bottom of crane.
    No flash visible.

    Now, here is the thing..I have been watching the front of u1, as you know…The crane when it passes in front, is distorted or not seen at all. Please look at the current videos to verify. The cable can pass right in front of the opening and the camera will rarely ever pick it up. What I am alluding to, is that u1 is not u1, but an image to be edited. There are many reasons for this…another is when they took off the back panel, no light came in (the shading/shadows were unchanged). Also, the tower often times "forgets" to leave it's shadow on the interior of u1 as it passes. And, as I stated, there has been a rectangular or square pixel in the third triangle over from the left, consistently blocking whatever. I see much editing here.

    califnative, I hear you…and I agree. I have learned to use the tool and will consider your input. Horse, thanks for taking time out for these posts. Going to find the repeat spark and accompanying window glow, then consider taking the next step.

  • Horse Horse

    10-07 am Eighth panel of Unit 1 removed. As the panels have come off the spark activity has increased; high counts on cam1; regular sparking on cam4; daytime sparks; and now sparks found on tbs-jnn. See pics: http://caferadlab.com/thread-1527-post-2875.html#pid2875

    Horse: "Perhaps there are bursts of energy at the plant that are not visible to human eyes but are being picked up by the camera sensors."

    A large or strong burst affecting multiple cameras, yes, I have pondered this phenomenon….sparks, a result of a burst from the plant or contaminants and the camera reacting visibly. It is after all, the land of the rising sun.

  • HillbillyHoundDog HillbillyHoundDog

    Nice find, Horse. Remarkable. Not only timing and location, but a better window into distance and height perception.

    http://caferadlab.com/thread-1527-post-2881.html#pid2881

    It would be interesting to view a graph overlay of sparks from any given camera, to look for patterns, point sources, voids and/or camera lense or internal component malfunction implications. Could be a combination…Could have colored markers…

    • Horse Horse

      TY Hillbilly, Before I was recording the tepcams I thought sparks might be some type of camera equipment or electronics failure leaving dropouts in the data stream or lights from below glinting on the lens but spark rates rise and fall relative to decommissioning efforts. Remove fuel rods from r4 and steam up the csfp; remove the broken crane from r3 sfp; remove the tent roof of r1; remove r1 tent panels; all led to spark increases followed by slow decreases, never going away completely. To my knowledge the tepcams haven't had to be replaced or repaired and overall spark rates have decreased. Going from 2011 real-time video and Fuku1long TL archives, spark rates are half what they were when the buildings exploded and smoldered but the spark rate surges still occurring have multiple sources; four breached reactors and 5 pools of fuel. Do you have any suggestions on how to make an overlay of the spark pics to look for anomalies and patterns?

      • HillbillyHoundDog HillbillyHoundDog

        How to make the overlay?

        Good question! I'll bet there is a Paint or other option that would be perfect…Some kind of transparent graph overlay to drag to each image and mark spark location and possibly color and date, then save each time…Problem is, I have no clue! Reinventing the wheel often, I would come up with something like tracing paper over the screen, marking each image manually and then taking a picture of the trace-paper! Hahaha?

        It would be a good question to post on caferadlab… The results would be worth the effort, me thinks…

        Did you get a chance to view the smoke incident, here?

          10-05 08:18:13 shadow on r1, a grab of shadow playing on r1 tent. Probably diesel smoke from the cranes or other heavy equipment. Bet the diesel's don't get much maintenance at the site. You could post your grabs on CRL to see if we're looking at the same thing (hint).

          I posted a plea for help with overlays on CRL, still waiting for the stampede. I have Photoshop but don't know how to use it yet, maybe someone here with expertise could chime in.

          • Pete

            I havent been here in a while, its seemed the site is on autopilot after the style change over and no one outside this site really cares about the cams anyway so I deleted all my gigs of recordings. Thats why Tepco changed the player they were using too, so that its a lower resolution and also cant be easily recorded in VLC anymore. I also like how they turned off the Sendai webcam shortly after it came online. Same old shit.

            But assuming you have a recent version of PS, to make a semi transparent overlay, first you need to convert the image to PNG. Open the image in PS, then hit "CTRL + Shift + S". Or click "File > Save As". And select PNG in the format dropdown, default PNG image settings are fine and then close out the image.

            Then open the 2 PNGs you want to overlay and make sure they are the same dimensions. "Crtl + Alt + I" will allow you to change the dimensions if they aren't.

            Now drag one of them on top of the other and then look for the Layers toolbox. If its not visible F7 or "Window > Layers" will display it.

            Then click the Opacity dropdown in the Layers toolbox, which will give you a slider. Adjusting the slider will change the amount of transparency, so adjust it until you can see them both.

            Then hit "Ctrl + E" to flatten the two layers into one image and hit "Ctrl + Alt + S" again to save the new image somewhere else, otherwise just hitting "Save" will overwrite the original file with the new one.

            • Pete

              Thats what I use to do for NETC and a jet stream or wind map. Of course they align perfectly much of the time, but NETC wont put the Wind plugin into their maps.

              Otherwise people could track the winds and rad levels and NETC is all about minimization and keeping the populace at ease, IE hiding the sensitive EPA detectors if you arent a member. And canceling the memberships of people who Were members before the Time Play feature was added.

              Im not gonna pay again for a pointless addon when they wont add the one feature that Would actually help people track rad levels in the air.

              Anywho, so I used to make my own overlays, matched up perfectly most of the time but now I can only see the crap user added detectors. Ahh the trusty geiger counter, cutting edge technology… for 1915. Besides most of them are indoor in the middle of someones house beside the PC.

              Even if it goes fuggin nuts or the CPMs spike… so what? Ive stopped caring because you don't know where its coming from or why, and its unlikely that Other crap geigers on NETC or the like will register it Either. Of course the EPA data is always suspect too since they turn them off at a whim (or whenever they spike), but a better detector is a better detector.

              Of course everyone pretends that a more sensitive detector doesn't mean that more was present all along that just isn't being detected on crap geigers.

              No, NO, its just because the detector is so more sensitive?!?

            • Horse Horse

              Thanks Pete, I'll try that procedure. Remember seeing your postings; too bad you deleted those gigs, commentary and grabs would be welcome at Café Rad Lab. There are people outside this site documenting TEPCO's ineptness at nuclear fuel melt cleanup and their efforts to cover-up the health damaging radioactive heavy metal and gaseous releases. This webcam forum wasn't the best format for pics and vids but it was the people watching, commenting, and networking that was of real value. TEPCO changing the feeds; too much noise in the signal; too many quit; and wrecked this network. I'll hang around to see if a network builds again because the information coming out can convince more people to seek a better way of producing energy. See, I found your post that might help me present better information from the data; thanks for the info.

                Pete: "…just hitting "Save" will overwrite the original file with the new one."

                Wanted to make sure you saw this, Horse. So awesome Pete posted this… I hope you try it- no pressure 😉

                • Horse Horse

                  I want to do multiple pics, will probably wash out the bright buildings, but it would let me check spark positions in the dark sky. No pressure, no worries, I'll play with it. Good to see Pete chime in, his rad rant was spot on too.

            • Horse Horse

              When adjusting the opacity slider of the top pic I can see, it goes black and white checkerboard without letting me see the underlying pic. Set the slider to 50% anyway. Must be missing a step because Ctrl E flattens the top pic but doesn't do anything to the underlying pic. How do I get one pic to have the required two layers in it?

              I started a thread at CRL to work on this procedure so I won't lose it if I get it to work. http://caferadlab.com/thread-1535.html

    ~13 mph winds now in the TBS/JNN cam area. The camera shakes crazily. I watched a live cam in St. Augustine during Hurricane Matthew's pounding. Waves crashing, wind howling. Camera rock solid.

    Can't believe they put commercials on the TBS/JNN camera. Like it's a commercial grade cam or something.

    Well, that's nuclear grade quality. built to last. chuckle. sob

    • +1

      I'd call this one a 'rainbow lighting' SPARK. 😉

    • Horse Horse

      I don't know how it can be separated into layers cause its just one spark pic even if the spark is composed of several light sources. Wasn't really happy with the transparent overlays, it keeps their original location but loses all their color. Thought I might use PS to make a collection of fancy sparks in one picture but I wanted to keep the sparks in their original location, haven't got a technique yet, just a bunch of thumbnails in a collage. Just trying to get a consistently sized selection from different spark pics to compare relative sizes is beyond my skill set so far. Will play with it some more but hints or suggestions would be welcome.

      • Pete

        Personally I don't think the sparks are ever in consistent locations, I think they are random airborne radionuclides close enough to the camera to overload the individual CCD pixels. I used to use Frame by Frame advance (E) in VLC to grab individual images one frame apart and they rarely last more than a single frame.

        I would definitely convert the images to PNG if you are not already, PNG can support native transparency and JPG cant so it will kinda work in PS but not as well.

        Take 2 pngs of the same size, drag n drop them into PS, clink on one to select it, then Ctrl+A to select the entire image, Ctrl+C to copy it, click into the other image and hit Ctrl+V. That will paste image 1 on top of image 2, then click Opacity and adjust… Arrow Up and Down are easier than the slider for fine-tuning. The Layers toolbox will also allow you to drag and drop one image on top of the other or vice versa.

        The amount of opacity needed varies depending on the images, like this one to blend TBS night time and a TBS day with a ship in the water was 60%.

        Photoshop I can help with, the science mystery that is fukushima, not so much : )

        As a side, the Blob is "back" in the Pacific, as I predicted and NOAA did not. Here is another image I made last month to show the location of Fuku in relation to the blob. I predict it will ebb and flow but its here to stay for years.

        • Horse Horse

          The Frame rate has changed you know, use to be 10 frames a sec now its down to 5 fps in flowplayer.

          http://imgur.com/a/Ot8Uu – I think the blob came out of fukushima; radiated tsunami debris decaying over a vast area.

          I take the spark grabs as bitmap images; used paint to convert to jpg for posting and as suggested to PNG for PS work. I got a two picture overlay to work fairly well with slight lose of color, added a third faint spark faded the color; tried 6 bright fancy spark pics and got fair results. Posted pics at this thread http://caferadlab.com/thread-1535-post-2913.html#pid2913
          Want to get a collection of sparks in one pic full of color and in the original positions and explore different ways to display the sparks for comparison and display. Have been using PS help to see what might be useful.

  • Thanks Horse for sharing this with us on Caferad lab. When I came here and didn't see it, I thought I'd copy/paste it:
    "10-21 am. Curtain down on the csfp, workers scurry around starting about 09:30, finished by 11:00.

    Really, it's quite a shock to see this covering of the common spent fuel pool, what, 2051 days, or 5 years, 7 months and 10 days after 3/11.
    This is chilling. All this while unit 1 is being uncovered.

    Thank you Horse for pointing it out.

    • Horse Horse

      Hi elibi, great to see you posting, you've caught quite a few worker sightings, glad to see you reading CRL. This is the second time the curtain has come down on the csfp. They had it on for months then it came off some months; back a couple weeks ago the csfp got the three deliveries of something by the little crane; now the curtain drops again. Some work they don't want seen? Chilling to see the unit 1 reactor skeleton again after so many years. Airing out that broken building could be raising rad contamination releases. Saw reports of 9 Sieverts in spots outside reactor 1. Parts of the plant that can still kill workers in 45 minutes. Hazardous place, even in the real time recordings those workers were quick to get the job done and scurry back inside.

      Sorry to hear about all the health problems, bad rad days used to knock me down for the count. TG, I know you could improve your diet but here's a supplement you might need if you stopped eating seafood.

  • Thanks Horse for putting me up to speed. I have been seriously ill since february and unable to watch for 7 months. Things in Daiichi haven't improved since then. Well, I knew they wouldn't improve. Unfortunately.

    What is relieving is the fact that webcam watchers are still there, reporting. Didn't doubt that either. Lots of smiles and care to you all.

    • Horse Horse

      Well, elibi, it cheered me up seeing you posting again. Things haven't improved at Daiichi and the webcam watchers kept pointing that out. The strange lights bottom left were from a small crane swinging back and forth in front of the bright work lights. We probably weren't supposed to notice, they could be loading pieces of Daiichi onto trucks headed for recycling centers. Yesterday they hosed down r1 with a crane tool that had big tanks on it; quite a show but it looked like gusts of wind kept scattering the spray. This morning, 6am jst, it looks like another panel will be removed. Yep, 06:14 south panel of the east face of r1 lifted away. I wish they'd use those panels as a backdrop for Abe's next speech. Where do the panels go after being irradiated for five years?

        • Horse Horse

          Yes, it blurred out the whole tower, the left part of the view was a gray smoky looking blur. I had watched the rain starting so I wasn't as surprised by it when it caught my eye too.

        • Horse Horse

          elibi, here's a grab at 06:45. It looked like smoke or steam; it didn't look like a rain drop at first glance. Thanks for posting your observation.

          • CodeShutdown CodeShutdown

            looks like a water caustic to me. A close optical phenomenon, distorting the tower. Doesnt look like smoke or steam. Rain and fog is a good indication of conditions which make caustics. Its not hard to tell the difference between near field things like caustics and far field big events, but I guess one needs an eye for it

              Yes, CodeShutdown, it was a water caustic but for a second it looked pretty scary. Maybe elibi got a little too panicky but I'm glad someone was watching and the observation was posted. My eyes are old and tired so I like to have a second look sometimes just to be sure. Been meaning to ask you to post some of your radiation standards findings on CRL. I agree with what you've posted and I think more people could be educated to take a second look at assumptions that have been given us by the experts.

                Horse, sorry if I seemed harsh. Every bit of sincere care is cherished.

                The radiation readings are a conundrum. Certainly the sievert system is a major fault. Busby gives us a rough correction factor; multiply the sieverts by 600! Another factor is the variation in instrument sensitivity. Without cross calibration, there is nothing to go by. Then you have the form. You wont read any alpha from a hot particle in a snow ball or mud clod.

                Im certainly no expert, I defer completely to the people in the know. It seems that making readings for low level radiation is generally misleading. A trap in fact, making things seem better than they are. Or in the case of Nichols, making radiation seem higher than it is.

                The great hurdle is to overcome the idea of grouping all radiation sources into one category called ionizing radiation, and judging the health impact either intuitively or by the defective ICRP dose model. It seems impossible to convince pro and anti nuker of this, yet it is clearly shown by Busby et al

                All the careful charts of linear dose effect curves are useless considering the bystander effect and other factors like radiation particle form, bioaccumulation and distribution, Busby's micro antenna effect and more

                It is obvious that both scientist and layman have been duped big time. As of now, radiation levels, at least in the lower ranges, are all but meaningless. Its a shame

                  Fukushima, how bad is it? We dont know. The problem is the complexity of nature and secondary effects that are not directly from radiation doses. Will science or the public realize this? It seems not. As a super rough estimate, I stand by the 10,000 Hiroshima bombs equivalent.

                  Here is data from Simply Info

                    We must have underestimated distribution vs fatal dose rate –

                    I can't remember my original thoughts, I think it was 20% Californian cancer spike within 5 years.

                    I wonder what the situation looks like from a cancer care / specialists POV.

                      what do you mean by underestimated distribution vs fatal dose rate?

                      There is SOME dilution, which of course is the scientific rationale for no effect. This is the problem with measurement, intuitive grasp, and the failure of science.

                      The first wave of volatiles, including the iodine was ten times the value of cesium. Strontium was one fortieth that of cesium. Anyway, that first blast must have devastated small animals. That was the observation. Babies were hard hit. That wave has decayed, leaving a different scenario. Nano balls of fallout alloy must be releasing americium and strontium, and causing uneven hot spots and strange bioaccumulation factors. Shame on Buesseler and Cullen for not getting into that. The levels are measured as low. I dont doubt it. But low is just a word. They dont know how toxic this is in the complicated scenario of nature. But how can ten thousand bombs of fallout be completely inconsequential. That one fact SHOULD illustrate the failing of science and mainstream media. Alas, it doesnt. Thus I conclude the human brain to be on the stupid side of ideal

                      Autism is the result of nuclear radiation in combination with other environmental poisons. Putin is autistic. As a result he can contemplate using nuclear weapons because he doesn't have the capacity to consider the consequences to himself and to the rest of mankind.

                      Tacoma, I dont see it as you surmise. The infant mortality spiked with some 30% increase on the coast. The Iodine has decayed. That leading wave has decayed into other products but the intense radiation and thyroid hit is not there now. Of course it will take some years to fully manifest, and the U.S. is now a sick zone from Fukushima. But ever increasing accumulating from here until the end of time does not seem at all correct. There is a decrease in effect and some rebound observed in small creatures. The complex nature of the fallout, the many isotopes and their complex time and space distribution and re distribution makes it very complex. Of course the corium is likely ex vessel! So the future could take dire turns, and this is assured considering the many reactors yet to have melt downs. But saying we are just on the leading edge of ever increasing radiation from Fukushima does not seem like the correct view. Belarus gives an indication of the time frames of different diseases brought on by Chernobyl. All will suffer to some degree. Over all, the extra deaths will hardly be noticed, just like the sixty million from bomb testing. Such is the power of selective press release, the disconnect of people and the vast population of ape men on this dying planet

                      PJ, yes the plutonium is the trump card, so to speak. Deaths could be eventually huge. Busby et al anticipate in the range of 200,000. Obviously there is huge oceanic die off, yet the scientists dont read large radiation levels. There IS life in the tide pools which I just observed. There are still birds, fish and people. So obviously the plutonium didnt kill everybody within thirty days. ITs just very complex. But more nuclear meltdowns are assured. This will eventually destroy human civilization and the ecosphere to a very large extent. For now, when people want to know how bad Fukushima is, I stick with the approximation of 10,000 Hiroshima bombs…

                      I was most worried about polonium distribution.
                      While iodine, and cesium are the primary 87% of
                      isotopes which we would detect; More cancerous nuclides should be accounted for.
                      The "All the plutonium fell from the clouds bit" were laughable admissions by the msm in this community; Polonium has a 5-10 year period of gestation…
                      While I agree with everything you said, I simply presume that isotopes of PU would have a relevant toxicology. (Meaning that the 5 year mark) is when we should expect seemingly healthy members of society to begin falling ill-
                      Within the 10 year mark Seemingly healthy 20-40 year olds will then likely begin to show signs of auto immune dysfunction-
                      That is what I originally assessed. So while I agree in the initial infant and senior mortality figure. In my opinion we have all likely received elevated doses in which we will not recover from- However it is when we pass that is in question.
                      the planet was engulfed for several weeks- Your absolutely right about the limited amount of natural spaces that we have to operate as beings. That being said It would be foolish to consider that the worlds largest dirty bomb simply failed to gesture its ultimate form in rendering-

                      To me it is and was and always will be an ele. This isn't life anymore- Just the suffering process before we move on to our next plane of existence- essentially we all have 5 years left before the full scope of the crisis is certain-

Dr. Hirsch’s assessment, based on data published by the French government’s radiation protection agency (IRSN) and the Austrian government’s Central Institute for Meteorology and Geodynamics (ZAMG) found that the total amount of unstable radionuclides Iodine-131 and Caesium-137 released between March 11 and March 23 has been so high that the Fukushima crisis already equates to three INES 7 incidents.

                      Release of radiation from the stricken reactors has reached 10,000 teraBequerels (10,000 trillion Bequerels) per hour, measured for radioactive Iodine-131.”

                      “…The map below comes from the Nuclear Emergency Tracking Center. It shows that radiation levels at radiation monitoring stations all over the country are elevated. As you will notice, this is particularly true along the west coast of the United States. Every single day, 300 tons of radioactive water from Fukushima enters the Pacific Ocean. That means that the total amouont of radioactive material released from Fukushima is constantly increasing, and it is steadily building up in our food chain.

                      “Ultimately, all of this nuclear radiation will outlive all of us by a very wide margin. They are saying that it could take up to 40 years to clean up the Fukushima disaster, and meanwhile countless innocent people will develop cancer and other health problems as a result of exposure to high levels of nuclear radiation. We are talking about a nuclear disaster that is absolutely unprecedented, and it is constantly getting worse.

The ECRP was an improvement on ICRP and ignored. Secondary effects also ignored. Blinders to look only at a few limited types of cancer so other toxins can take the blame. Here's another problem, all those different radioactive elements decay into other radioactive elements until reduced to lead; they don't magically disappear. I don't want any heavy metals in me. "The radiation readings are a conundrum", yes, giving a gamma reading because it's the easiest doesn't tell me what other radionuclides are lurking in a sample. You may not be an expert but you've done research and articulated well many problems with the current models. Much respect Code, a clear signal lost in the noise, help me get the word out on CRL.

                • Horse Horse

                  Code, Simply Info gives a hint of what burned in sfp4; Tepco’s unknown source.
                  http://www.fukuleaks.org/web/?p=11668
                  “It is assumed that most of the radiation releases were from units 1-3 out of the reactor with some potential from the spent fuel pools.
                  Unit 1 = 20% released (130 Pbq)
                  Unit 2 = 40% released (360 Pbq)
                  Unit 3 = 35.5% released (230 Pbq)
                  *TEPCO considers 110 Pbq of releases to have an unknown source and a total initial release at the plant of 900 Pbq”
                  We saw Unit 4 smoking in the early days, no core in the reactor; it could only be the sfp. Covered over, a fuel removal process started. We saw the CSFP steam up every time a hot load from sfp4 was dropped in. The steaming events and the reported numbers coming out of sfp4 didn’t always match. Reported empty after a year, the CSFP steaming events continued on for another year. The CSFP doesn’t steam up as much now, thus fewer of the webs of radioactive steam sticking to the camera lens. Steam still coming out the side of r4 must be the fuel melt and broken rods still in that leaning, leaky pool. All the Dai-ichi radiation readings we get to see are from ground stations; the plumes rising into the air are not measured except maybe by the spark activity on the tepcams. I can hope the reactor melts are being kept cool in basement water but the spent fuel sitting in those pools are the biggest risk of further catastrophic releases. Spent fuel rods should not touch each other.

  • Sorry I can't log into caferadlab to include this. pb with password.
    Smoke is still coming out of the common spent fuel pool.
    Had I not been an old watcher, I wouldn't feel as terrible, or would I?
    What my unfinshed sentence meant is that I couldn't log on to FUK.live 4 but I eventually saw it appear and then boom, the first billowing of smoke came and I took those three screenshots.
    It is 07 17 now.I can't wait for you to watch this and record it.
    the crane left of the tower (don't remember how it's called) is blurry, shaky,weird sometimes and puffs keep coming.

      My sorry, elibi, just noticed you're blocked; must have been when Pia was cleaning up after all the spam CRL was getting. Posting something, even a hello, would have helped Pia know it wasn't a spammer because I saw your login early on. Messaged her to fix. Appreciate all the observations you've posted. I copy pasted your recent worker sighting we would have missed. My thanks to you for all the work you've done. We'll get you squared away on CRL.

    Some visuals and explanation for keeping the rads and dust down @ u1.

    • Horse Horse

      Didn't know about the misters installed inside, the rest of the infomercial explained some of the crane tools we've seen. We get another quick view inside. When the roof came off the dust suppression wasn't enough because farmers to the north complained of high readings. Glad they reassured us dust suppression is still taking place. High Netc readings must be some other reactor. The sfp has 292 spent fuel assemblies stored in the pool. 70 fuel assemblies were damaged before the disaster and probably won't be removed. Japan's oldest reactor really showing it's age, needs more lipstick before the Olympics.

      • HillbillyHoundDog HillbillyHoundDog

        Thought you might get something out of it… I say there is no pool, but one of your friends over there at caferadlab posted interior pics of it I had never seen. If I took it at face value, that would make me wrong. But I don't, so I'm not -yet.

        • Horse Horse

          That's why I look, I had trouble believing r4 sfp was cleaned up the way they said. It leaked and leaned and burned but it's empty now. They dragged us thru a show and closed the curtain. R3 looked worse than r1 but they found a pool under the pile. Maybe there's one under the r1 ruble pile.

      • R1 must be sparking rapidly.

        I am proud of what you and Pia created, and I popped in the other day to see your still as busy as ever –

        Ever since the cover was taken off, its been vibrant here. The tree in my yard had yellow spotted leaves, which began to form a tumor like growth on the underside this summer- I was told it could be a type of disease, however we both know that the lack of immunizations are to blame.

        Just wanted to say hello because I am here- Going to give an update on page 1- My internet is supposed to be cut off today, so I was impressed I actually have the ability to post here and now. (I suppose tomorrow will be a different story alltogether. Either way, thanks again old friend.
        You really came through, and I am sorry that I was in such a difficult place. Truly things are no better now, and I hope you and Sarah are fairing much better than myself this winter.
        You are a good friend Horse, and I owe you the thoughts that I bared.
        Thank you for all you have done for both me, and this community. It means a lot to everyone-
        All my love

          TG, Iodine did the trick for us. Read a lot of military manuals regarding rad exposures and the one thing I picked up on was the concern for the thyroid. Mess with the endocrine system and bodies fare poorly, feed the thyroid with good iodine and health can return. High rad days slow me down but don't stop me like they used to. R1 has been sparking rapidly at times, yesterday evening noted several doubles. Wish you well, my friend; you've got a hard life in this America. Get healthy and keep fighting for a better place to rest your head.

          • I often wonder if the basement is the new cooling pool and simply remains flooded. I truly had the worst health symptoms, only to wander here and realize the fools let pandoras box open to release the 5 years of stagnated waste into the open environment-
            Haven't been 100% since- Not below too bad Id say 90-85.
            Just knew something had changed.
            I actually came here because we both know me and my solar obsession, and eq research- I was going to post we hit a peak 650 wind and to expect a 6. (Just as it happened). So it was interesting how we all seemed to assemble in our traditional battle stations.
            I am trying my best to keep fighting- the opposition is strong, and I am taking time choosing the appropriate method of attack in every one- Just a really difficult year I have been facing;
            Too much tragedies to list- I used to think I was being tested for something important- Now I just wonder if god hates me-
            More so a joke.
            I am just the leaf in the wind, (picked up unfortunately by a hurricane). Stay safe and keep warm yourself. This winter will be bad- I can sense it up here as our seasons are far colder then last year, and our mountain ranges are already brimming.
            We haven't had a bad winter in some years. (So I have a feeling you may want to stock up yourself).

            Horse, R1 was sparking this am at 09:53. One very bright spark and then a series of fainter ones. So glad you are keeping a good record! Access to internet has been compromised,just a few good days a month.

    11-22 06:00 Big shaking on cam 4. Looks like another EQ.

    7.3

    61km ESE of Namie, Japan

    2016-11-21 20:59:46 (UTC)

    10.0 km

  • TOKYO (AP) — Magnitude 7.3 earthquake strikes off #Fukushima in #Japan, tsunami warning issued. Depth 10km

  • Horse Horse

    Saw an aftershock when I stopped the recording to get a clip, uploading now. Video soon.

  • So now the depth is evaluated at 25km.
    But the magnitude has now been evaluated at 7.4
    The waves of the tsunami now could reach 3m.
    One wave was 140cm in… don't remember
    All this from NHK
    They insist that the tsunami will hit repeatedly

    • The 140cm wave was in Sendai airport.
      As I said on Twitter: #Fukushima is trending. Current event revives awareness of the absolute inadequacy of nuclear plants worldwide. #RememberDaiichi #Nonukes

      • Horse Horse

        elibi, you were on that EQ fast. Good job. Watching that quake hit gave me a little panic. Still seeing many little aftershocks. I need to improve my typing skills or you'll sail right past me. Post that twitter link so we can keep up.

  • just saw more aftershocks 1 minute ago

  • Horse Horse

    Video stuck in queue; waiting. Pia tweeted problem with Daini U3 lost sfp cooling for an hour. Dai-ichi reported all okay only minutes after EQ; now reporting water purification system might have been damaged. Saw tsunami reports of 3 meter wave but no damage details. NHK says Tepco reports no major damage. Chores call; will post video later if it ever gets into vimeo.

    • HillbillyHoundDog HillbillyHoundDog

      Noticed you mentioned worker sightings a few times, Horse… Maybe of note, on Nov 14 late afternoon (2-4?), a few workers on roof of unit2 peering over sea-side. Wondering what they were looking at, I noticed an object or container at ground level in between u2 and u1 that was ajar (crooked). Looked at other vids to see the discrepancy and it was horizontally straight. There is a possibility it was the 15th, but I don't think so. Perhaps the object becoming ajar is also visible, prior to the worker inspection. I didn't see it happen, just the workers inspecting. Sorry, no capture. You?

      Thanks for your diligence, BTW.

      • Horse Horse

        Like to track any worker sightings. 11-14 cam1 is on a disk waiting to get transferred to my archive computer so I'll have to look later. 14:00 – 16:00 narrows it down; start posting a JST date time cam and observation here or at CRL so I have a chance of finding it. Without TL updates to go searching no one gets to see unless I get good clear posts of what to look for. Nuckelchen lurks and comes up with video, others maybe as well, and we won’t waste too much time looking; use jst, tell me what cam, and give a brief description then add notes and guesses.

        11-14 14:00-16:00 cam1 workers on u1 peering down seaside possibly on 11-15

        Observations are the only record we get now. Just luck noticing the steam event; I watch from across the room and don't see little people or events well. Watchers are more important than ever now and if an observation isn't posted promptly and clearly it's gone.

I'll take elibi's one false alert among all the post's elibi has made. Elibi gave enough info to find it quickly and check what it was; and, smoke from the csfp is something we watch for. I'll encourage any webcam watcher to help keep an eye on TEPCO.

  • Horse Horse

    @HHD '11-14 14:00-16:00 cam1 workers on u1 peering down seaside possibly on 11-15' entry was more a note for me to make it easy when I go looking later. I've seen workers go up/down to the roof of r2 in the black exterior elevator on the SW corner of r2. I'll try to find your worker sighting for a grab. Don't have pics of workers on the roof of r2 yet.

  • Horse Horse

    @CodeShutdown, did you see the steam event from the CSFP area? Those EQ's are shaking things up. Wonder how much water sloshed out of the common pool?

    • CodeShutdown CodeShutdown

      yes Horse…the snow, the steam cloud, the little people and their out of control colossus. Mainstream science says up to a meter and a half sloshed out of the pools, including the common pool during the 2011 quake. That is frankly an unimaginably violent scenario

      ape-man ruined the living earth and tried to cover it up, even in the face of unimaginable disasters.

  • Horse Horse

    @AirSepTech, Mr. Gas Man help me out, the vapor cloud; steam or smoke? Would I see a steam cloud like that on a warm day or was it visible because of the cold air?

    https://vimeo.com/192875288#t=260s

    • PlowboyGrownUp

      At the CSFP there's 2 or three guys moving around quickly, ground floor.

    • AirSepTech AirSepTech

      "Would I see a steam cloud like that on a warm day or was it visible because of the cold air?"
      You would see that most anytime, stored energy. More so when cooler, humidity is also a factor.

      I did see this last night, early to bed/rise,,, gotta 'smoka bird'. hah

      The nature of the escape tells me it was in an enclosure, a door or vent rooftop, intentional or not. The guys don't panic, act normal.

      Not smoke or 'cryo' gas, no rise or fall, remains buoyant. Not a lot of heat associated with it, little velocity, not a pipe/line escape.

      More interesting to me is the 'heat' factor of the site. Reactors, pools, corium. It is wet/cool there. IMHO, there are many things that are not explained well, and my opinion is not very aligned with what seems to me as 'popular'. AST says 'let it go,,,,someday….'. haha

      Happy Turkey Day, be safe, spread some love and good will. 😉

      • Horse Horse

        AST, thanks for responding. Value your practical input; I do know how hard it is to convey opinions not aligned with a popular view. A few localized decay heat sources on the site in a wet cool environment and a company that insists there is never any damage even after more EQs. Code's little tidbit "Mainstream science says up to a meter and a half sloshed out of the pools, including the common pool during the 2011 quake" leads me to think more water sloshed out of the common pool; refilling the pool might cause a little puff of steam to be vented as cold water enters a warm pool.

        The worker sightings are important because just yesterday I saw an article in the DailyMail about Japan's EQs ending with "…that destroyed the Fukushima nuclear plant in 2011, which leaked radiation into the atmosphere and has since been abandoned." The workers didn't panic but they went inside until the steam dissipated. I saw sparking last night at the rate of one a minute with a few doubles popping up; probably won’t get around to counting them. Radiation is still in the air.

        The turkey stopped gobbling, saw steam coming from the oven, must be dinner time.

      The stuff to the right side of the frame(unit1 cam) is lighting distortion.

      Hello!

      On the 26th, 10AM++- (JT), shaking and accompanying cable swings. Many cranes operating at once… Seemed they were in a hurry, as they kept working through the shaking and swinging, u1 cable to and fro inside of unit1. After noon, all work stopped and camera lighting was being adjusted on cam 4 or malfunctioning. Noticed extreme discrepancy in weather on u1 cam v u4 cam. ?? USGS had no notice. ? The next morning (27thJT), it seemed visible emissions from u1, but cam stopped every time it became more noticeable. I remembered a nuckelchen utube video in the past that had sepia adjustment or other such saturation technique that showed Fuku emissions, that I thought would make it clearly visible. (It was more visible when I looked at the screen from an angle.)

      Just some visual observations from an amateur lookie-loo…

      Good to hear from you, nuckelchen.

  • HillbillyHoundDog HillbillyHoundDog

    Horse, interesting:

    cam1, 11/28, 13:21-+, steam/spray event, front left corner, inside u1.

    13:27, red spark or flash, front left corner, front, bottom right side of concrete rectangular structure inside, at floor level (remaining top floor level).

    13:42, bird or other anomaly?

    Many stops/starts of the cam, resulting in more down time than running time, but you could tell it was because there was a lot going on in there.

    Statement about Fukushima Radiation Hazards – January 31, 2014

    I reiterate Fukushima remains a disaster and I am very very concerned about long-term effects of the radiation leakage. Coastal waters around Japan are still closed to commercial fisheries and scientists continue to monitor water, air, soil, fish and other animals for traces of radiation. But monitoring is not the ultimate solution. The real solution is to avoid nuclear reactors altogether but unfortunately its too late for this as an option.

    Now lets stand back a bit and think about how we approach environmental issues in general. From my initial introduction to the ocean, my father, Jacques Cousteau, impressed upon me some important facts about our planet. We live on a planet bathed in two fluids – the ocean and the atmosphere. These fluids are in constant motion, each interacting with one another and together sheathe every corner of the planet.

    Because of this – we must remember that nothing can ever actually be thrown away because there is no away, everything is connected and a pollutant released on one side of the planet has the potential for far reaching consequences everywhere. In terms of Fukushima, scientists are doing what they can to understand the short and long-term consequences of the radiation leaking on our environment and ultimately our own survival.
