Soil samples from Japan tested with gamma spectroscopy

The samples from Kashiwa City, Chiba Prefecture [~20km NW of Tokyo]… There were really high, really clear peaks for cesium…

The gamma signal of the cesium was so strong that it washed out just about all of the other peaks.

The cesium contamination from the soil was so strong that it was impossible to identify the presence of other isotopes using this particular equipment.

Credits: Tom from anti-proton.com did the testing. I also need to thank Frank Daulton, Saga007, and asuperdry.

See the video detailing the results here
