  • Kashiwa City soil near rain spout from someone’s yard @ 97,500 Bq/kg [...]
  • That is an exceeding large amount of radioactivity to find in somebody’s soil.
  • The most unfortunate place was in a child’s playground, also in Kashiwa City.
  • This playground had a radioactivity in dirt that children play on of @ 41,500 Bq/kg.
  • I detected Cs-137 and Cs-134.They were so high they clouded everything else. There was nothing else I was able to detect as a result of it.
  • Very active, huge amounts of radioactivity.
  • Little children play on this everyday.

  • Here is the soil sample form the child’s park in Kashiwa City.
  • This plastic container is actually blocking a lot of the alpha particles.
  • When i pulled this out of the sample container, it was about double this.

Thanks to

  • People who sent in samples from Japan
  • GammaSpectrometry (Yahoo Group)
  • Particular someone on YouTube who posts a lot of good research
