Tepco] said it detected in the leaked water radioactive substances emitting beta rays, with an extremely high reading of 80 million becquerels per liter [...] TEPCO said the toxic water most likely flowed into the soil. The utility has yet to identify the exact source of the leak [b]Calculations:[/b] Roughly 300 metric tons = Roughly 300,000 liters × 80 million Bq of beta radiation per liter = Roughly 24,000,000,000,000 Bq of total beta radiation (~24 trillion Bq) [/quote]What dose that mean to the lay man? [/quote] this explains it well- Understanding Radiation: Becquerels and Sieverts http://tsukubascience.com/en/understanding-radiation-becquerels-and-sieverts/ Becquerel (Bq) The unit of radioactive decay equal to one disintegration per second. The Becquerel is the basic unit of radioactivity used in the international system of radiation units, referred to as the “SI” units. 37 billion (3.7×1010) becquerels = 1 curie (Ci). Beta particles are subatomic particles ejected from the nucleus of some radioactive atoms. They are equivalent to electrons. The difference is that beta particles originate in the nucleus and electrons originate outside the nucleus http://www.epa.gov/radiation/understand/beta.html What happens to beta particles in the environment? Beta particles travel several feet in open air and are easily stopped by solid materials. When a beta particle has lost its energy, it is like any other loose electron. Whether in the outdoor environment or in the body, these electrons are then picked up by a positive ion. How can beta particles affect people's health? http://www.epa.gov/radiation/understand/beta.html#affecthealth Radioactivity in some natural and other materials http://www.cnechile.cl/wp-content/uploads/2011/04/11.jpg [/quote] ty for that, i ran out of pinning room for the in depth 101 on this.....

From our GLP translator
OK its way too complicated to translate like this, but hes basically saying that they have some worry about tank leakage. that more than one tank is leaking and they dont know the exact points, then he is telling exactly how full each tank is (many of them above 90% full) and how many tons have leaked.
Now hes talking about how many beta and gamma nucleides have been found and which elements have been found in the water and whether that water is inside the tank or outside.
(trust me this is very high level japanese, above my level, I'm doing my best loll)
There is a pump between 10 and 11 that .. has something. Im not sure?
the tanks are all connected so when there is a problem with one there is a problem with all of them
OMG something about rain... I missed it because i was typing the last line... Tokyos gonna get rain too this afternoon.. I'm not sure, I'll have to ask a friend if they heard it. The commenters are freaking out about it.
He finishes off when they have more information they will tell.
Thats the end of his report.
