Journal of Ocean University of China, April 2014: ‘A study of transport and impact strength of Fukushima nuclear pollutants in the North Pacific surface’

Abstract

  • Based on the statistics of surface drifter data of 1979–2011 and the simulation of nuclear pollutant particulate movements simulated using high quality ocean reanalysis surface current dataset, the transport pathways and impact strength of Fukushima nuclear pollutants in the North Pacific have been estimated. The particulates are used to increase the sampling size and enhance the representativeness of statistical results. [...] most pollutant particles move eastward and are carried by the Kuroshio and Kuroshio-extension currents and reach the east side of the North Pacific after about 3.2–3.9 years [...] the impact strength of nuclear pollutants at these time scales can be estimated according to the temporal variations of relative concentration combined with the radioactive decay rate. For example, Cesium-137, carried by the strong North Pacific current, mainly accumulates in the eastern North Pacific and its impact strength is 4% of the initial level at the originating Fukushima area after 4 years. [...]

Excerpt

  • The incident has been listed as the biggest ever release of radioactive materials into the oceans [...] The transport of nuclear pollutants is mainly controlled by surface ocean current. [...] as a result of oceanic advection and diffusion the cesium-I37 concentrations decreased to less than 10 BqL [10,000 Bq/m3] in the simulation domain by the end of May 2011. [...] most of  the nuclear material in the ocean would be slowly transported northeast of Fukushima and reach 150°E in 50 [days] [...] the nuclear debris in thc ocean would be confined to a narrow band [...]

      Haven't looked at it yet, but we know that Hillary did a REALLY bad thing with pacts with the Japanese. But that's not a matter of political party. Both parties do bad things now because they are under corporate rule. We have to look to individual representatives or Senators who are willing to expose the likes of this, and they are few and far between.

      But it's a little premature (also a little insulting) to tell people who to vote or not vote for when we do not even know who will be running. Like, would you rather have had Mitt Romney? REALLY??

      It's good to publicize the wrongful dangerous food pact, but PLEASE DO NOT BE TELLING PEOPLE HOW TO VOTE. Thank you.

        bluetick did not mention any political party, his post mentions an individual politician.

        bluetick did not mention any candidate to vote FOR, what was brought out was the betrayal of one particular politician.

        You, WNTF, brought up other politicians from another party who have nothing to do with the article. And then criticize the idea of voting for that person.

        It is you, WNTF, who is telling us how to vote. bluetick has only posted an article about a individual politician who is helping TPTB to feed us radiation.

        I found it insulting that you object to this post simply because of your political party preferences. Thanks to bluetick for posting an article that should be considered before I cast my vote for an individual politician. And an article that informs me how the govt is trying to hide the contamination.

        I think, most people here at ENENEWS already understand that political parties all have ties with the industry, they receive industry money and support in various forms in various degrees.

        But when the nation's security and survival is at stake, different politicians act differently, some would be more courageous than others.

        And the issue is voting is a relevant topic here because Hillary is already rumored to run for the next presidency.

        Don't get me wrong, I vote for the best candidate, regardless of the party. What really disappoints to me is that this particular pact that Hillary signed was entirely non-essential. There was absolutely no need for the U.S. to sign it.

        That pact was not like some kind of a Middle Eastern treaty that would help save lives or protect the U.S. soldiers. That was non-essential to the U.S. interest, did not add or reduce anything from the US-Japan relationship.

        If Hillary did not signed the pact, Japan would have been OK with it. They would have simply expressed a regret in the public announcement but they would have totally understood the rejection.

        All my Japanese friends and families said it was a crazy thing for Hillary to do. Even the Japanese people don't want to eat those Japanese food items if they could help it. Why Hillary had to go out of her way to please the Japanese at the expense of our health. That's the point that troubles me.

      bluetick, thank you for the Examiner article link. The article is the first English one that I can show to people. The film, too.

      The other day my local grocery store was selling giant Japanese scallops. The tag clearly said they're from Japan, and you know those scallops come from cold water, north eastern Japan. They were nice looking, giant scallops but they're priced cheaper than the tiny bay scallops from the U.S. east coast.

      I had to make a negative comment to the fish counter guy, because I remember reading Japanese articles back in 2011 praising about Hillary Clinton for signing the particular agreement. The JP gov officials were bragging that they got Hillary to sign the zero-food-test in secrecy to the U.S. public.

      But every time I mention this happened, people give me a crazy look, perhaps because it was not widely reported in the U.S. and people are eager to give preferential treatment to Hillary because of her gender, husband, accomplishments, good relationship with Obama and being a Democrat, etc.

      I have nothing against Democrat or Republicans, but I do believe the first responsibility of government officials is to protect their own citizens, and Hillary clearly failed at it. She put her political ambitions and collusion ahead of the future of American children, who will be paying for it with their health for generations to come.

          The article has valuable information about the actions of a politician that we should all be aware of and should remember when voting.

          This and other article may bring one to the conclusion that not voting is the best decision. If the only politician running is one who sponsors pacts such as this one I will not vote for him/her.

          If one chooses to vote, they should vote either third party or, if one of the Big Two, no incumbents, then get on the political forums and tell everyone who you voted for.

      Great information on this page: Nuclear Insiders asking question's .

      " Speaking of criticality, has anybody seen any analysis or thought that the explosion that wrecked #3 reactor building might have involved a criticality? If you look at the video of the explosion, you can see a flash at the upper right corner of the reactor building that is followed by a very strong vertical explosion, even as the shock wave spreads around the building. Minus that (possibly secondary?) explosion, the explosion that destroyed Unit #3 looks a lot like that for Unit #1.

      Just wondering about the possibility of some configuration of earthquake jumbled fuel rods, low water levels, fuel melting, that coupled with a powerful hydrogen gas explosion might have slammed rods together and caused a criticality in either reactor cores or spent fuel pools.

      Has this been definitively ruled out as a possibility in the explosion of Unit #3, and/or the other reactor buildings? "

        Consequences of Possible “Inadvertent Criticalities”

        So now let’s assume that “inadvertent criticalities” do occur in reactor #1. What could the consequences be and how might they manifest themselves? Many of you brain-stormed on this topic and I will reserve comments and summarize what you have all said across different blogs and fora. Damfuzzy reminds us of the fact that new BWR fuel assemblies are located on the refueling floor which at least in one Fukushima reactor is exposed to the atmosphere and may have been disrupted from explosions. He suggests the possibility that the “spontaneous fires” that have been reported may be due to criticality excursions. Roger T Crouch postulates that rod-collapse could lead to loose material where vibrations, water flow and structural collapse of the assembly grid and control rod systems could result in a self-sustaining chain reaction. Many of you have worried about the possibility of starting a chain reaction that becomes super-critical rather than turning itself off due to negative feedback effects. The main explanation for not going super critical is that – if transient criticalities have taken place – they are probably due to small globules of fissile material that is expanding and moving in a viscous soup of molten metals and oxides, thus continually changing their mean free path.

      They are talking in a forum about Ferenc Dalnoki-Veress has written a paper, What Was The Cause Of The High Cl-38 Radioactivity In The Fukushima Daiichi Reactor #1. Ferenc concludes that we cannot exclude the possibility that little pockets of melted fuel have gone critical, even if for a short period of time.

      " We are focused on thermal reactors, of course. It’s all we are taught, and you gotta have a moderator.
      I have asked this at several places, maybe somebody here will answer. I simply lack the education.

      Now there’s an awful lot of fuel in that pit.
      Given Boron’s transparency to fast neutrons (Google Boraflex),
      Might such a large pool,
      with so much fuel in it,
      when drained of moderator,
      approximate an infinite fast reactor?

      Sure would appreciate some comfort on that one.

      Oh by the way i tried his formula for flux.
      I too thought about a short excursion .
      Plugging in one sec for time i got 1.7E14 nv, a worrisome number. It’s about right for a 1 sec excursion to ~200% power.

      i sure hope the Cl38 report was bogus.

        a) Please remember that the nuclear industry is a rider & politicians, including higher-ups, are horses of a sort. It's like a trickle-down theory of abuse: IAEA/NRC/etc threaten governments, governments threaten people, & sheeple who see things the way MSM tells them to spout abuse at people who are paying attention. Like abused (if ambitious) children, leaders curry favor with their alphabet agency abusers & promote them.

        b) Please look up the definitions of communism and socialism. I think 'fascism' is the word you're looking for.

        c) Please consider that Romney would be just as much, if not more so, in bed w/all the same dirty industries Obama is – and we'd probably be mired in *even more* military "interventions" & campaigns to spread "freedom" & "democracy" in the Middle East.

        d) Please realize that while equally guilty, any president is largely a figurehead, there to take the blame for the actions the government takes.

        e) Please leave the sweeping political bile in the forum, pretty panda please? We know who are to blame & who enable them. Let's talk about what we're going to DO.

      When you look at this frame by frame, other stuff doesn't add up.

      After the flash, the 'BIG BANG' is direct center, with a good amount of energy/material also coming from the SFP to the right of the main cloud/explosion. Then some very heavy objects falling straight down exactly centered with the stack.

      I can't believe TEPCO's story of the 'warped' concrete cap, it makes no sense, unless you believe it fell back in place. ????
      I do believe the 2nd containment pics, FUBAR, bet that RV is expanded just a little.

      It does not look like the main blast came from the SFP area.

    Senate Bill on testing for nuclear radiation advances

    Two state Senate committees have passed a bill calling for the Hawaii Department of Health to launch a pilot project to monitor radiation levels for five years because some people are concerned about fallout from the March 11, 2011, nuclear disaster in Fukushima, Japan.

    Senate Bill 3049 has received some lawmakers' support, despite opposition from state health officials who say the department doesn't see a concern and already has a radiation surveillance system in response to the disaster.

      I like the intent of the senate committees. But if the agency and controllers do not want to find anything, or allow the public to know, these committees must install an overseeing structure that is effective.
      Sounds like the health officials have a purposefully ineffective radiation surveillance system in place that gives the appearance of protecting the public when it does not. Which is just how they want it.

        Hurting the tourist, food, real estate industries would have to be balanced against trying to protect public health when the damage has already been set in motion three years ago. The Senate will study the data years from now. The truth is that subtle changes cannot be measured and the precautionary principle should apply; but without being able to change 3-11, the issue more likely will become one of "safe" levels. Permissible levels will be raised and deemed to be "safe."

          It's true that PR and the economy will trump public health. (Though I did read that they started to put boron in milk to protect children.) But there is really nothing "subtle" about these changes, plus they are all going in the wrong direction.

          I don't know that a land that dependent on tourism will ever handle it differently. I don't even know what they are thinking: That the local population will be getting sicker, but at least the tourists will only be there temporarily and their money can help fund the coming health crises in Hawaii? Or that it's not just us, it will be the whole world, so let people come have a good time in "paradise" as long as they can?

          Lying should be the LAST line of defense. But they'll figure out some partial testing or selective testing or maybe move the decimal point of the readings over to the right…..

    I am convinced that there were many inhaled hot particles, followed by plumes of 129/131I; the 134/137Cs; 90Sr. Whether by air, land or sea, our environment was degraded. In the future we will witness a mosaic of complex deposition of radionuclides into our food and water. In other words, a Chernobyl-like effect in North America.

    The better the perceived Fukushima outcome, the more the nuclear industry will claim that there is room to maneuver to increase their market share by building more reactors. Naturally, if the deleterious effects on health were all realized up-front, people could comprehend the time-released negative radioactive effects and stop this form of technology.

    Control of the data and PR means control of the spin. Many people have already been sentenced to death, on a statistical basis, and their offspring genetically-modified in very bad ways.

    By the time people wake up, their gooses will be cooked… The debate will go on based on assumptions and incomplete data. By the time the full extent of the damage is realized, the can will have been kicked down the road for the next generations to deal with for the electricity we use today.

        Interesting that there was even an IAEA report (someone here linked it) where even they (lying scum) conceded that strontium and uranium particles settle down to the bottom of the sea.

        We also DON'T KNOW the extent of airborne releases thus far — either atmospherically or able to settle down into the sea. We know that the MOX fuel in reactor 3 blew up and that that has long-range horrifying implications. But even that is only part of the tale.

    Did folks think that radiation just vanishes after being diluted?

    Gamma = electrons

    Beta = protons

    alpha = neutrons.

    Atoms decay three dimensionally, the energies are registered as distinct wave-lengths.

    Visible light is only a fraction of the electro-magnetic spectrum.

    Think sound effects….phhhhhttt!! zap! wophhttttt! etc.

    The atomic forces are rips in space time, sort of a reverse blackhole where matter "arises" out of thin air, an upwelling of energy discharge.

    My only solace in all this is to learn more deeply, the ways of the small, to learn how energies too subtle to sense, affects us all.

    Our very presence is all we can give, to ourselves and each other.

    It is the humans that don't feel the oceans' pain that are in need of others "with" presence.

    I can't pin point what it is, but in humans, we all burn at different intensities, some are dimmer, some are brighter….

    That human energy is all that a human can contribute to his/her surroundings.

    Yeah, you can act like a piece of sea-weed sloshing in the waves on the shore, burning your epidermis to a crisp, or you can be thinking of eating chocolate ice cream with macadamia nuts and coconut after you drag your bruised and battered soul onto the reefs of human companionship.

    Wow, they need to be looking at the radiation exposure in WA state. This is serious. These birth defects may not be from that, but you never know.

      Tiza and WYO, reading that article it seems that our society has indeed collapsed. Just no money to do robust Public Health Studies.
      Here we have a cluster of severe birth defects in a small hospital as the Realities of FukuSHHHH! devastate the Pacific Northwest and most but the 58 yr old RN at the 25 bed hospital,barely yawns. oh we'll look into.
      The CDC is going to release a report soon.

      The government honestly seems more interested in their Flu pandemic creations and scenarios, crowd control than it does the health of its people. That is a big red flag for an absolutely failed government.

      If some crazy tampered with Tylonal they would Marshall the resources. The people need the probable problem ID's so they can form communities and build support and survival structures.
      Wait until the even devasting physical defects show up on the table in clusters. Not warning people , erring on the side of safety for god's sake,is criminal. The health of some business interest is not worth more than a healthy child. Only a collapsed society would act this way.

        GQR2,

        I'm not even sure it's from the radiation, but they need to be checking for that. Most people still don't know that WA state had some bad Fuku stuff come in through the air, now in the ocean. It's pretty scary. They don't know what's causing those birth defects yet, but surely they should check for the radiation.

        Hi GQR2, just want to throw in an update – my friend who owns the international press agency is getting into the subject matter – he responded to my mail today. I am on to this and more, and will do whatever I can to raise awareness and put an end to the criminals ruling the world… When everybody does what they can, it should make a difference. Just to let you know – I kicked off a press campaign in 1997 in Europe regarding health insurance coverage for women and after about 8 months the law was changed… I will NOT give up on this here, promise. All my love to everybody here on this forum.

            Dear Rakingmuck and dear GQR2, thank you so much, I will ask, I cannot do this alone. I hope I can convince my dear friend of the severity of the situation. Then I hope he will contact some of the celebs who would be appropriate, I am thinking of younger ones, since I feel the young people need to be addressed first and foremost. Then this potential spokes person needs to be educated, there are a lot of letters that need to be written, communication materials that need to be created – so – thank you so much ! I will keep you all posted. I need to get into action, otherwise I am going nuts… Teachers, preschool teachers, nurses and mothers need to be educated too – everyone who tends to our precious, innocent children ! So much work to do… so let's do it !

    An aspect being ignored is the accelerated release of methane into the environment from species die off.

    Australia…

    http://www.theguardian.com/world/2014/feb/17/heatwave-frequency-surpasses-levels-previously-predicted-for-2030

    The information here relates to pollution not radioactive death and methane release. This Fukushima event alone has the potential to rev up natural methane releases by hundreds of years.

    Dead pacific ocean = massive climate change.

      Howdy, Atomic.

      People think that by going to the southern hemisphere, they will escape this deadly killing evil radiation. The strange fact is, it is already down there and has been for some time. Now, it is only growing in accumulation and nothing seems to be stopping it. They can rant and politely banter all they want about what has happened, but it has not going to change one iota of WHAT IS HAPPENING NOW.

      Right now, the food that is coming from california is hotter that our environment here. If you did not see the latest rad report, go check it out. What do you do when YOU realize your food is hotter, or more radioactive with SOMETHING unknown, than our already hot environment here is. Go see the pics.

        Well, St. George Island in the South Atlantic might be a good resort. A bit cold though. But plenty of solitude and beautiful! Probably real estate is a steal. Building materials? Used to be a whaling station so there might be lots of free lumber and stuff.
        Definitely for the young and adventurous.

          Oops! Amend. That's South Georgia Island. Not St. George Island. "Stunningly beautiful and rugged, this island wildlife sanctuary, once visited, is not easily forgotten. Its snow covered peaks, blue glacier ice and emerald green bays, are breathtaking sights."–its website Definitely a warm clothing environment. But not a bad place to die of radiation sickness I would think. Not sure.
          Currently no permanent residents so one could start his own local gov. Might have to sing "God save the Queen" until Argentina takes it again. So Spanish might be a good second language. Just a thought.

        To an extent this is true. Atomic radiation testing from America and England has tainted the environment. Massive amounts of contaminated Californian oranges, walnuts and other products are being dumped on Australian supermarket shelves. We have been part of the maruta experiment for quite some time.

        In regard of food Contamination beggers cannot be choosers, thus wise food knowledge is required in diminishing consumption exposure. Man (666) altered food (GMO) is low in essential immune system content and could attribute to increased uptake. (leaky guts etc)

        The great tribulation brought to you by General Electric Hitachi (who knew these reactors were unsafe) "We bring good things to life"

        Corporation atomic radiation is trying to hard sell Thorium reactors now. More lie fraud promises. Tell It to the Fukushima government!!!

        Human made = inferior. With that knowledge we can humbly continue to develop safe technology in full self-esteem that we are not perfect. Those with eyes see, those with ears hear. The nuclear family is severely humbled. Time for YOU to eat cake.

        Coming to a headquarters near you "Attack Of The Underlings" in TOHoscOPE. Staring Fukuzilla born of atomic radiation……

    Nuclear test at Whole Foods Colorado today: these first eight words might be a bit misleading. Actually what I did was talk to employees about radioactivity and their food. The cheese lady, a sandwich maker, maybe the milk guy . . . Whole Foods is the perfect social nexus for this study as their shoppers tend to be well off and the type that could move south. And they follow the health stuff avidly. So a good place to gather input. Suggest others ask questions and benefit from the many anxious minds in their area via health food stores . . .
    Personally I am taking care with West coast products and fish. But I also realize that no place is safe these days. Now Buddha subsisted on one grain a rice per day. So . . . Rice is cheap and some can be gotten still from none radioactive areas.

    >petifish: the best information on radiation impact in Pacific ocean I saw was the documentary "Radioactive Paradise" on the Science channel. A team of marine scientist went back to the Bikini Atoll in the South Pacific to examine the Crossroad project where the US tested 23 atomic bombs in the 50's for 12 years. Using atomic for peace rhetoric, the US government convinced 180+ residents to move out of their island home so US can do their atomic and hydrogen bomb testing. They tried to let the residence move back in the 80s, but soon found out that the residents quickly become highly contaminated with cesium inside their bodies from the coconut and the foods they ate. Today the island is still deserted.

    LEERY OF SIMULATED ESTIMATIONS . . .

    Fish and kelp in southern California are already radiated. What isn't?

    And air currents are bringing nuclear radiation through North America and beyond, non-stop, 24/7.

    That is why cattle feed, and everything else, is becoming contaminated.

    Will anyone want to live in the path of non-stop nuclear radiation?

    That pathway is the jet stream.

      And, what the Pacific will deliver to the North American West coast will make Sellafield look like child's play. It has the capacity to eclipse what the jet stream is delivering, now.

      Evaporation over its vastly contaminated surface waters, forming rain clouds that will carry radioactive rain across the continent will deliver a more concentrated and deadlier brew than rain outs from the jet stream.

  • So it will travel from 135deg to 150deg in 50 days.

    But another 90deg = 900 days?

    And Magically the cesium disposition is 4% its original mass. Yet 4% is what was the actual raise only days after the crisis.

    Math never makes sense to people that lie. Only people that understand complex mathematics will catch them.

    "Fukushima nuclear particles ***WILL MOVE*** east across Pacific — Narrow line of radioactive pollutants to make it all the way across ocean this year"

    Will move????
    Are they crazy?
    Is this wording supposed to be calming. No fears – it will move, but hasn't moved yet. About the same as "no present concern or health risks".
    Let's all just om and live in the now and all is well, now.

  • silent weapons for quiet wars is an active operation against the homo insanien race that occupies this planet, we cognizant bugs are just a nuisance and will die out just as fast as the truly insane that continue to swallow the lies. i harbor no feelings anymore beyond disgust at how easily we have been manipulated for centuries of rule by genocidal "heroes" foisted upon us as presidents and ministers.
    the masses grin and bear tickets for non seatbelt use and ignore the imposed radiation, gmo and geoengineering weapons of genocide the same now as from the dawn of "civilization". humans are a particularly gullible species that will yet again seal the fate of the planet to extinction. lies come too easily and pass too quickly to the masses that prefer tv and games of the roman model.
