Report of Radiological Environmental Monitoring of the Environs Surrounding Wolf Creek Generating Station, Kansas Department of Health and Environment, July 2010-June 2011:
“Radioiodine was detected in air filters collected March 25, March 31, April 7 and April 14, 2011. Levels detected were 0.047, 0.137, 0.043 and 0.004 pCi/m3 respectively. Air filters collected before and after these dates had no detectable radioiodine.”
0.137 pCi/m3 = 0.000137 pCi/liter; Divide 0.000137 pCi/liter by 27 to get Becquerels/liter, which equals 5.074e-06 Bq/liter.
- I-131 on March 31 in Kansas = 5.074e-06 Bq/liter
- I-131 post-Fuku high for UC Berkeley (Mar. 23) = 4.3e-06 Bq/liter
