Cracks like pottery.... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mudstone [snip] Mud rocks, such as mudstone and shale comprise some 65% of all sedimentary rocks. Mudstone looks like hardened clay and, depending upon circumstances under which it was formed,[b] it may show cracks or fissures,[/b] like a sun-baked clay deposit. [quote:Waterbug:MV8xNTM3MTQ2XzI1NzU3OTczXzgxNzEyQ0Y2] Fateful Move Exposed Japan Plant Tokyo Electric Lowered Elevation of Land Before Building Nuclear Facility, Weakening Tsunami Defense. In 1967, Tepco chopped 25 meters off the 35-meter natural seawall where the reactors were to be located, according to documents filed at the time with Japanese authorities. That little-noticed action was taken to make it easier to ferry equipment to the site and pump seawater to the reactors. It was also seen as an efficient way to build the complex atop the solid base of bedrock needed to better protect the plant from earthquakes. But the razing of the cliff also placed the reactors five meters below the level of 14- to 15-meter tsunami hitting the plant March 11, triggering a major nuclear disaster resulting in the meltdown of three reactor cores. [b]A former senior Tepco executive involved in the decision-making says there were two main reasons for removing the cliff. First, a lower escarpment made it easier to deliver heavy equipment used in the plant, such as the reactor vessels, turbines and diesel generators, all of which were transported to the site by sea. Second, the design of the plant required seawater to keep the reactor cool, which was facilitated by a shorter distance to the ocean.[/b] http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424052702303982504576425312941820794.html [/quote] [/quote] [b]Bedrock, not Mudstone![/b] [/quote] We doing this dance again..? [/quote] Up to you![/quote] [b] In order to build the plant - originally only Unit 1 - the upper sedimentary layers were excavated. These are Quaternary alluvial deposits composed of clay and sand which are friable or semi-hard (green and brown in the cross-section). Thus the plant was built on "mudrock" type sedimentary rock (yellow in the cross-section), which is a muddy rock composed of clay and silt (very fine sand). But the term "muddy" does not mean that the rock is soft. It simply means that it is a rock whose matrix is clay; it is also called "argillite".[/b] Source: http://fukushima.over-blog.fr/article-the-geology-of-fukushima-88575278.html http://a34.idata.over-blog.com/580x532/4/37/62/00/geologie/geology/tectonic-division-of-Abukuma-Mountains-and-location-of-bore.jpg [/quote] This report is much better... :chuckle: Lying by omission is still lying.. in case you are keeping track. I am... The Geology of Fukushima http://fukushima.over-blog.fr/m/article-88575278.html [snip] The first paper brings together two cross-sections of the ground at the site of the future plant: one east-west, another north-south.[b] Based on this document, backed by a photo of the site before construction (1966), we realize that the coast was originally rocky and that the sedimentary plateau has been excavated in order to achieve the earthwork for the construction of the nuclear plant.[/b] As anticipated in the cross-section (marked by the dotted red line), the excavation lowers the ground to 10 meters above the sea and the digging of the basement is below sea level. [b]In several of these cross-sections, an ancient fault, predating the later Miocene, is clearly visible under the nuclear site. [/b]Whereas the geological survey conducted prior to the construction of the plant does not reveal this fault (drilling did not go beyond a depth of 200 meters at the time), [b]it is clear from the documents dated 2009 and 2010 that Tepco and the NSC have known about it for several years. [/b] One dissenting Japanese geologist, for example, - who wishes to remain anonymous - has been noted for his views expressed on a U.S. forum, "Physics Forum": according to him, the bedrock of the region is made of coarse, very permeable sandstones, and contains vast amounts of water from the neighboring Abukuma mountain. This groundwater, he claims, is flowing under the plain towards the sea at a very low speed of about 50 cm / day (3). [b]And finally, there is the problem of the type of rock on which the plant was built being rather "soft", meaning that an earthquake can only destabilize the buildings.[/b] [/quote]
