Prepared for the U.S. Department of Energy, Pacific Northwest National Laboratory, Nov. 2011:

Fukushima experience and lessons learned – The CTBTO [Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty Organization], the IMS [International Monitoring Stations] and the International Data Centre (IDC) performed exceptionally well in the aftermath of the Fukushima event, providing valuable data through which NDCs [National Data Centers] were able to give essential advice to their National Authorities which, in turn, assisted with emergency planning. Obviously, lessons were learned from this event which was unprecedented in CTBT-related experience. Operational lessons learned at the CTBTO IDC are summarized [...]

  • More than 400 Level 5 [multiple fission products detected] samples. overload of work for MIS laboratories [Mishima, Japan] and WMO [Wichita Mountains, OK], not all requested
  • Special handling of few hot samples (1 kBq per m3 in air result to 20 MBq at particulate)
  • Need for staff to cover more challenging samples and cover weekends etc

    The cesium fallout went in an arc over the US, starting across the west coast, funneled through the northern plains, then settling into the mid-Atlantic states. Iodine followed a similar route, but went further south as it hit the east coast. The xenon fallout blanketed everywhere in the US.

      hi dosdos and fall-out with a plethora of isotopes,particles, circle the globe every 40 days with the jet stream. It falls and it stays forever. It comes down mixed in with the chemical precipitation they are creating with their death chemical-trail assaults.
      So fall out mixes with the aluminum,barium and strontium in the chem trails.
      I can't blame anyone who thinks the government as part of the nwo,has declared at the very least passive war on its people. Its really not so passive.

          In New Mexico, we're wondering if it's "evacuation time" times at least two by now.

          But evacuations never seem to happen unless there is gooey oil running amok or breathing the air lands you dead on the ground. Or maybe if a sinkhole is two inches away from swallowing up your home.

          If they ever "do the right thing" with evacuations, then the whole economic infrastructure falls apart. Which isn't even just about rich people making a lot of money. It's food supplies, water supplies, sanitation, population control, etc.

          Somewhere, secretly, there are probably specs on when and how evacuations could/should be done. Don't doubt that it's a very unpretty picture. But somewhere, bet it's being done.

    "…A variety of radioisotopes are produced annually for medical and industrial purposes. The use of these isotopes has resulted in significant advances in the treatment of a number of serious ailments, to include heart disease and some forms of cancer. But while these isotopes are an obvious benefit to society, effluents released during their production can have the unintentional and undesirable effect of replicating the signatures of nuclear explosions. The production of 99Mo for medical procedures is often carried out through the fissioning of uranium, followed by dissolution and capture of the isotope. Fission gases, e.g., radioactive xenon, are a by-product of this process and are not entirely contained within the production plants. The detection of these same fission gases in the environment is one of the key indicators of a nuclear explosion, and the ratios at which they are released during 99Mo production create ambiguity for current detection technologies…"

    In short, making radioactive elements for medical procedures causes as many cancers as it cures. Monitoring excessive radioactive releases as with Daiichi upsets the trends in cancer rates and play havoc with monitoring stations but modeling was sufficient to ascertain immediate fallout patterns later confirmed by station sampling. With initial amounts traced, a preliminary scope of the cause of the fallout was determined…system worked and worked well. Couldn't be bothered to report real time fallout.

      OSAKA: Days before Japan plunged into an atomic crisis after a giant earthquake and tsunami knocked out power at the ageing Fukushima nuclear plant, its operator had admitted faking repair records.
      The revelation raises more questions about the scandal-tainted past of the Tokyo Electric Power Company (Tepco) and the government's perceived soft regulation of the industry.
      The operator of the Fukushima No. 1 plant submitted a report to the country's nuclear watchdog 10 days before the quake hit on March 11, admitting it had failed to inspect 33 pieces of equipment in its six reactors.
      A power board distributing electricity to a reactor's temperature control valves was not examined for 11 years, and inspectors faked records, pretending to make thorough inspections when in fact they were only cursory, Tepco said.

      In particular, we focus on the two radioactive isotopes abundantly produced by fission, the Iodine isotope I-131 and the Cesium isotope Cs-137; the former has the half-life of 8 days while the latter has 30 years. The ratio should decrease on the time scale of days after the termination of nuclear fission processes and hence may be used for measuring the age of the fission products, similar to the carbon dating method using the ratio of C-14 to C-12 in the remains of ancient life[3].

      With these caveats in mind, we first make a simple estimate of time dependent numbers of I-131 and Cs-137 nuclei produced from a uranium burning nuclear reactor. We assume that in an operating nuclear reactor, where criticality is sustained for chain nuclear fission reactions, these isotopes are produced with a constant production rate, while the produced isotopes decay exponentially with a constant decay rate. The number of I-131 isotopes created by a nuclear reactor which had been in operation from time ti to tf is then given at later time t by where N0 is the number of fissions per unit time, fI is the fraction of the I-131 produced per fission, and the decay rate λI is given in terms of the half-life by τI = ln 2/λI = 8 days.

    I like this one: "The trouble with quotes on the internet is that it is difficult to determine whether or not they are genuine."–Abraham Lincoln (not sure if this was said before or after Gettysburg)

    It is very easy to take the American life too seriously. People who commit suicide are examples of people who have taken it too seriously. People who take other people's lives are not taking it seriously enough.

    Looking in my journal for 3/11/11 I see it was a Friday here about 9 miles east from Boulder, CO. Uranus was moving from Pisces to Aries that day–from mystical water to blow torch fire. The moon was in Gemini–positive air. I see I had done a long and intense meditation. No mention of Fukushima–but then my journal entries are sketchy. With Uranus starting to square Pluto anything might happen and probably "bad"–which was the case though as they say "low level".
    Enjoy the humor.

    Nice to learn that all these monitoring agencies "performed exceptionally well." They just had zero calling to inform THE PUBLIC?? That's obscene.

    The same for whatever testing is being done now of the Pacific Ocean off the West Coast. Or does anyone think that that is NOT happening?

    • Of course they performed exceptionally well – they did exactly what they are expected to do: remain silent, keeping the public uninformed by any means necessary. Not a single violation of this golden rule has been registered. 100% success.

      they worked exceptionally well in silence.
      how can these various agencies' silence NOT BE CONSIDERED criminal??
      CRIMINAL ON THE LEVEL OF "crimes against humanity"
      truly disgusting from all their orifices.
      how do these black-hearted people live with themselves?
      3 years on and their lies have helped clean this up 'HOW'?

    Fukushima: A River Runs Through It
    http://www.veteranstoday.com/2014/03/08/fukushima-a-river-runs-through-it/

    "Meanwhile, GE was very busy enlarging the little reactor that powered American Submarines, literally. The engineers slavishly kept the upside down design, too, even though the reactor would be on dry land and not at Sea.

    At Sea a misbehaving reactor core can simply be dropped to the bottom of the ocean. Decades later, in 2011, the submarine reactors were doomed to do just as they were designed to do and drop their misbehaving, melting 2,070°F Uranium reactor cores to drop, plop, right through the reactor. The white hot melted cores then proceeded to burn through the concrete basements and dirt into the old river bed."

  • James Conca, long time nuclear promoter, was caught bragging about the high level waste that they put into the WIPP, and he should know, he was the former director of the WIPP independent lab that is funded by DOE.
    He was bragging that they have some really hot stuff down in the WIPP cave, over 7 Curie per liter. That is really RADIOACTIVE! If you use the WolframAlpha online calculator, see link
    http://www.wolframalpha.com/input/?i=7+curie+to+Bq
    That turns out to be 259,000,000,000 Bq
    OK, how can you wrap your head around that huge number? Well we know that anything above 100Bq per kilogram is too radioactive to sell as food. A kilogram is 2.2 pounds. So a kilogram of fish would be a large meal.
    How many fish at 1 Kilogram each could be contaminated by that small one liter of waste stored in the WIPP? 259,000,000,000 divided by 100 is
    2,590,000,000 Fish (that’s 2.59 Billion fish, one for every man on the planet)
    Now assuming they have 3000 Barrels of the high level waste? At 55 gallons each. That is 624,525 liters.
    Or enough to contaminate
    1617 TRILLION fish
    How many fish are in the ocean?
    Do you know that because WIPP is closed that they are stacking up the barrels in the uncovered parking lot at WIPP?
    Hard to believe?
    Here is that pronuke site in which James Conca brags about the high level waste…go visit.

      Did WIPP Break the law? " WIPP has disposed of almost 100,000 cubic meters of waste, some fairly high-level (>7 Ci/liter), hotter than anything left in the Hanford tanks."(James Conca)First off all..LITER mean LIQUID, containers are only have 1% fluid! Second WIPP is a 'low level' waste facility. DOE, again by executive decision, has changed the entire facility classification and safety requirements! Area Congressmen and Senators better check quickly on what was done–Mr. Conca obviously was involved heavily. ENENEWS has most of the research done already! See previous posts(before the referenced documents disappear)!

      Also,
      "one incident in 15 years is awfully good."(Conca) Depends on the incident..ONE FUKUSHIMA is enough for a million or so years. Okay, 1 in 15, for a facility which is supposed to last 10,000 years. Lets do some math–that's about 667 incidents in all that time or a 6% chance in a year for an accident, or 14% every 15 years. Since there is HIGH LEVEL waste in WIPP, that's not acceptable for anyone.

      And if anyone wants to mess with my math..go for it..I challenge Mr. Conca to provide better figures..

  • Apparently New Mexico pictures itself as a MECCA of radiation—dumb choice

    Radiologic HQ Rises Just West of Carnuel
    by Mike Bush / Mountain View Telegraph | Jan 3, 2013 | Filed under: News
    As the American Society of Radiologic Technologists continues to grow, so does its headquarters at the foot of the East Mountains in Albuquerque: A 30,000-square-foot addition is expected to be completed by the middle of this year.
    Membership in the organization grew from 92,000 in 2000 to nearly 143,000 a decade later. Today it boasts 148,000 members and 110 employees.

    Today I picked up browned bit of evergreen boughs on the snow. Green was on top, and brown, mottled dead tissue below.

    White pine branches had tiny, ill formed cones. These observations don't jive with simple "winter kill."

    I suspect weak cellular structure.

    Get ready for a rough ride folks.

    Really strong statements on the Project Censored Radio from Arnie Gundersen, Bonner, Gamer and many others… new ideas about safe energy. Bad news about suppression of information by the nuclear cabal and their minions. Surprise!

    US Department of Energy WOSMIP II – Workshop (November 2011)

    Fukushima fallout monitoring in Greece International Monitoring Stations (IMS) Pg 7.41
    Fallout from the Fukushima event was monitored in Thessaloniki, Northern Greece, for about a month after it was detected there. Three different fission products — one short-lived (131I), one relatively long-lived (134Cs) and one long-lived (137Cs) — were identified in air, precipitation, soil, grass and cow/sheep milk during the period of March 24 to April 23, 2011.

    My conclusions from Pg 7.42

    Fukushima Disaster Iodine 131as monitored in Greece IMS
    (A; activity-concentrations in Grass) = 4286 m3 kg-1 and (B; activity-concentrations in milk) = 0.36 kg L-1

    Chernobyl Disaster Iodine 131 as Monitored in Greece IMS
    (A; activity-concentrations in Grass) = 4233 m3 kg-1 and (B; activity-concentrations in milk) = 0.15 kg L-1

    *Overall, IMS particulate and noble-gas stations performed very well in detecting and tracking the Fukushima event, with all Northern Hemisphere stations recording detections. (Pg. 7.43)

    *Airborne analyses conducted by the USA revealed "results identical" to those obtained from the International Monitoring Stations (IMS) particle samplers, demonstrating the value of systems dedicated to test monitoring to support crisis management and population protection following nuclear accidents/incidents. (Pg. 7.45)

    *Well then apparently, Iodine131 activity-concentration in cow & sheep milk, as measured…

    Continued:

    *Well then apparently, Iodine131 activity-concentration in cow & sheep milk, as measured in the Greece IMS, were more than double what Chernobyl discharged!
    I have no idea how this relates to the federal (USA) maximum level of iodine-131 allowed in drinking water which is 0.111 becquerels per liter. I would assume that drinking water and milk requirements would be equal, so what is the significance of the above milk monitoring result in the Greece IMS?

    Did the world's northern hemisphere milk supply, as reported by that Greek IMS, exceed consumption requirements for that month's monitoring period? If so, why was that not reported to the folks by our governments and the Mass Media? Is their criminality at play here – just asking…

    TruthSeeker, dirty dogs lie together. I feel their criminality has been at play for sometime. There is criminality at play though and hopefully forums and obtained information llike these can bring it to light.
