MIT Center for International Studies — Ken Buesseler, Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, Oct 24, 2013 (at 31:30 in): This is a timeline from early on to about 1 year later. This is what we published using Tepco’s data to point out, a couple of features here, you see it going up — this is 50 million Bq/m³. I studied Chernobyl, we’d never seen things above 1,000 Bq/m³ in the ocean. This is why we called it an unprecedented accident. When the health physics people started looking at this they said yeah this of concern. When you’re up here, you might have mortality effects directly on organisms living in the ocean.

Fukushima Wildlife Dose Reconstruction Signals Ecological Consequences (pdf): Seawater concentrations of 131I reached 180 000 Bq L [180 million Bq/m³] on March 30, with an associated 47 000 Bq L [47 million Bq/m³] of 137Cs (measured 330 m offshore) […] At such high dose rates, marked reproductive effects, and even mortality for the most radiosensitive taxa are predicted for all marine wildlife groups whose life history characteristics confine them to the near-field, contaminant release area. […] All estimations were performed under the assumption of no additional marine releases after the end of March. Actual releases of unknown quantity appear to have continued past this date, thus our dose estimates may be low. Our estimates of dose rates are also under-predictions because they are based on measured data for only a few radioisotopes among the suite of possible radionuclides that composed the actual aquatic source terms (e.g., 58Co, 95Zr, 99 Mo, 99 mTc, 105Ru, 106Ru, 129 mTe, 129Te, 132Te, 134Cs, 136Cs, 132I, 140Ba, 140La).

    Don't have time to read the source material at the moment, but 50 MILLION Bq/m3?

    Hate to say it guys, but unless something is done and quick I think we're basically toast, as if there was any doubt before.

    Japan rarely and randomly tests fish, and allow fishing not far from Fukushima. We can buy any kind of fish from anywhere in the Pacific in supermarkets, even fish which travelled to-from most heavily contaminated area.

    ."you might have mortality effects directly on organisms living in the ocean."
    http://web.mit.edu/cis/eventposter_102413_japan_nightmare.html

    So, if the levels of radiation measured in the ocean is 50,000 times worse than Chernobyl will we start to see organisms in stress?

    Let's start a possible list of stressed oceanic organisms, beginning with blue-green algae and going up through the food chain.

    After we have done a thorough oceanic study we will turn our attention to terrestrial ecosystems (for fallout) to see if the same biological stress from radiation causes mortality in organisms.

    The known atmospheric loading from Fukushima is unknown at this point. It is assumed that there are continued bursts of radiation burping and fizzing from the destroyed nuclear power-generating site that was once one of the world's largest attempts at harnessing the power of the atom.

    Funding for this vital study to be made possible by GE/Hitachi/TEPCO. They are to be thanked in advanced for their combined contributions to this horrendous industrial nightmare, for without them we wouldn't have to even consider doing such a study……

      Ken Buesseler always says nobody tests, there isnt enough money for testing, its nobodies responsibility to test, yet he knows that there is no danger from the low levels along the American coasts. This is a pathetic stance any way you look at it. But what about all the other professionals…where are they? Someone recently said most employees are good people. Dont good people use their skills and voices in their professions to help stop the destruction of the planet? Or do good people just do nothing, thereby become complicit in supporting the criminal cabals that wont stop until everything is dead?

      Yes Ken B. seems to downplay Fukushima quite a bit. Perhaps he is trying to capture a govt. contract and that is why he walks and talks the no worries line so to speak. I'm not sure but he is another one that believes that dilution is the solution yet raises concern about testing thus I think he's vying for fed money. JMHO

      Uranium is found in nature and also sends out dozens of gamma-rays. These often conflict with nearby peaks in a gamma spectrum and can be difficult to separate out. In order to determine type (depleted or enriched or purified etc) it is compared, through detection of its daughter usually, proactinium, in ratio to the amount of U235 – which also has its own conflicts with Ra226 where it's typically looked for – and additionally the U238 is measured against its daughters, Bi214 and Pb214 to check for equilibrium. It is quite complicated and not uniform even in nature. Checking for cesium-137, however, is much easier in that it sends out one main gamma in an area of the spectrum (662 keV) with much less interference of other potentially present radionuclides and additionally is not found in nature so it's a much better determinant. Add a detection of CS134 with a shorter half-life, within a certain amount of time after an accident one can much more easily narrow down source and time of emission. Iodines are not as easy to detect as cesium but again, are also valuable as it pertains to time. Plutonium, while an alpha emitter too is often best found through the gamma-ray emitted by its daughter, Americium at 60 keV. This is relevant to gamma spectroscopy though…there is beta and alpha spectroscopy however detection rather than measurement tends towards those methods' strengths and gamma spectroscopy is rather most often used.

    The isle of my birth was Oahu and I spent not nearly enough time playing "seaweed" on the North Shore near Sunset Beach (think Banzai Pipeline).

    For those who don't know how to be a clump of seaweed, it's just that, flopping and sloshing up and down the beach with the waves. It's what you do after too many failed body-surf tries and scrapes on the coral reefs offshore.

    I imagine that Hawaii will see an uptick in flu cases this season, the radioactive waters/air can't be too good for folks' immune systems.

        Normally, on approach and descent into Tokyo's airport, I've always seen a variety of fishing boats in the ocean many miles out. This time, the only thing I really saw was oil and LNG tanker ships, and a couple of container ships. Either they were in for the season, or trying their luck in a different part of the ocean.

        So far, measurements in Japan with my GMC-300 have ranged from as low as 5 CPM (on 53rd floor of a hotel) to as much as 55 CPM (walking to business meeting site near the bay). Not as high as I expected to encounter this time, but definitely more than my normal exposure rate at home (~20 CPM). The weather has been mild so far, but a good rain could bring more contamination…

    From Buesseler: ''When the health physics people started looking at this they said yeah this of concern. When you’re up here, you might have mortality effects directly on organisms living in the ocean.''
    From the French study: ''At such high dose rates, marked reproductive effects, and even mortality for the most radiosensitive taxa are predicted for all marine wildlife groups whose life history characteristics confine them to the near-field, contaminant release area.'' They also say: ''All estimations were performed under the assumption of no additional marine releases after the end of March. Actual releases of unknown quantity appear to have continued past this date, thus our dose estimates may be low. Our estimates of dose rates are also under-predictions because they are based on measured data for only a few radioisotopes among the suite of possible radionuclides that composed the actual aquatic source terms''
    Well, there seems to be an admission that 50 million bequerels per cubic metre of water can kill life forms. However, the release of a few thousand tonnes of nuclear core into the environment has not been enough to trigger a global health warning. So what will? Can we assume that nothing short of global nuclear war will be regarded as unhealthy? That, unless you're a fish in Fukushima Bouillabaisse, Japan's new national dish, there's no need to worry?

    There is another possibility. But fault still lies on our shoulders. We've waited so long to do anything about the frauds, the embezzlers, and opinion shapers that their power is quite entrenched. The whistle blower position rarely does well or finds satisfaction for his efforts. Even worse he may find himself killed or his family threatened. Even if the information does make it to "the authorities" you'd be assuming they weren't of the persuasion to sweep everything under the rug. In reality, much of the people at the top of our system are in on it.

        Agreed. First time I had heard him in person. This is one highly intelligent, grounded, principled young man. He also said that the laws he is being charged under are ESPIONAGE laws — as though he had clandestinely sold secrets to a foreign power or blown up a bridge!; when in fact, what he did was to release information directly to the public and in the public interest.

        It's actually a GOOD test case in terms of relating to whistleblower treatment. Because Snowden, unlike many other whistleblowers, is widely acknowledged and supported by Americans, yet he is still treated like crap by the U.S. authorities. Imagine the even worse treatment of others with lesser standing.

    To talk about "cumulative ingestion" seriously downplays the risk of internal exposure and ingestion of radioactive particles.

    I have learned a lot by the informative, intelligent and common sense people who blog here. Thanks.

    Your data is valid. To get the help from the scientific community, who has the machines, your government who has the means, but lacks scientific will, may be a moot point now. Common sense, as presented here, tells me that the whole is bigger than the sum of the parts, as a lot is missing.

    Namely the truth.

    We get another snipp-itt of oops in this article, as if the author admits to his short comings of being human and not doing a damn thing about it. Oops is only good in horseshoes and hand grenades or if your funding is on the line.

    When the truth is accepted as common sense, backed up with data, wall street will smell the blood in the water. The possibility of a financial and economic collapse becomes, a not if, but when.

    Observations:
    The whole Pacific Ocean is dying.
    Grown up people in our government are pissing on our heads telling us it's raining and funded scientists who goose step in line.
    A complete main stream media black out, which started here and Japan then needed to pass a Secrets Bill. It all makes sense now.

    A once famous detractor, who posted here is now gone, S somebody? I saw scientists, who blog here, get their blood pressure up and they produced and presented forth, such science, in a grand and logical order. You presented truth. That goes down on my bucket list, if I can only find it.

    Sometimes the truth is worth…

    Think I will pass on the salmon sticks
