Scientist uses Fukushima radiation to reveal swimming secrets of Pacific bluefin tuna
[link to phys.org]

[snip]


Pacific bluefin tuna are born several miles off the shores of Japan and surrounding countries.
They spend their first year foraging in those waters, and then either remain in the western Pacific or migrate eastward to California.

Because the fish are born near Japan, the smallest fish were certain to have swum in Japanese waters only in the year following the Fukushima accident.
The presence of cesium in these fish would support the claim that they are still carrying radiation from Fukushima eastward, and that this measure can be used to trace bluefin migrations.
Analyses performed at Nicholas Fisher's lab at Stony Brook University in New York revealed that every one of the smallest fish contained low but detectable cesium-134 levels, making it clear which fish had recently spent time swimming near Japan.

(Madigan stressed that the Fukushima radiation found in bluefin tuna is significantly lower than naturally occurring radioactive isotopes normally found in the fish.)


- people should realize that this is only the beginning of bio-accumulation.
- tuna is a major food source
- stressing that lower radiation is found means little in the long run. The background levels aren't from radionuclides and the contamination continues...

Re: *** Fukushima *** and other nuclear-----updates and links
The contamination is probably a moot point because bluefin are being fished to extinction.. high demand and high revenues.
And, I'd have to disagree with the article and say, a 96 per cent drop makes them pretty much endangered.



[link to phys.org]

Pacific bluefin tuna are a valuable part of the global commercial fishing industry, and particularly in the world of sushi: In January, a buyer at a Tokyo auction paid a record $1.76 million for a 500-pound tuna, to be sliced into fine sushi. And although the species isn't endangered, its worldwide numbers are down 96 percent from unfished levels, according to a December report.

Google Begins Mapping Japan's Nuclear Exclusion Zone
[link to abcnews.go.com]

[snip]

The desolation has largely been hidden from public view, behind checkpoints set up to cordon off the government mandated nuclear exclusion zone.
But Google is hoping to bring the displaced residents back home – at least virtually – using its street view technology.

Namie Mayor Tamotsu Baba said his town has yet to begin the process of decontamination.
Recovery has not begun. He hoped the Google images would show the world the reality.

"We still have to wear hazmat suits and get government approval, just to go home," he said.
"How can we even begin to rebuild under circumstances such as that."

"It's absolutely frustrating," he said.
"That 'smell' of life, the smell of the kitchen, the smell of gasoline in the streets, all of that is gone now.

There is just silence."

"This is not over. This is not even the beginning," said Kawai.

LDP boots anti-nuke advocates from environment panel

Japan's ruling party, while hardly a champion of environmental issues, is apparently rather touchy about any criticism of its policies in that area.

That may explain the decision by the Liberal Democratic Party to drop three anti-nuclear activists from the government's Central Environment Council.

The three individuals were approached about becoming or staying on as panel members last December, before the Lower House election that brought the LDP back into power, but have subsequently been told their services are no longer required.

80 percent of evacuees from 3 prefectures won't return to hometowns: survey
[link to mainichi.jp]

[snip]


Eighty percent of those who have evacuated from Iwate, Miyagi and Fukushima prefectures, which were hit hard by the March 2011 disasters, will unlikely return to their hometowns, a survey has shown.

The Mainichi Shimbun recently conducted a survey on 118 evacuees -- 25 new respondents and 93 others who were covered by at least one previous Mainichi survey. Five of the 118 have evacuated from Iwate, 20 from Miyagi and 93 from Fukushima.

Of the respondents, 58 percent said they are considering settling down in prefectures other than their domiciles, and 22 percent said they have already done so. Only 20 percent said they have no intention of permanently living in other prefectures. The survey was the fourth of its kind carried out by the Mainichi.

Radiation in Fukushima 80km zone falls by 40%

Government officials say radiation levels within 80 kilometers of the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant decreased by 40 percent in the 12 months leading up to November, 2012.

Officials from the Science Ministry measured radiation one meter above ground in the area. They also used a helicopter to take readings in the air.

They said the radiation one meter above ground dropped by 40 percent on average at more than 140,000 locations.

NHK reporters visit Fukushima nuclear plant

NHK reporters have visited the crippled Fukushima Daiichi power plant nearly 2 years after the nuclear accident.

They walked near the plant's No. 1 reactor building for 10 minutes on Tuesday. They were the first news media members to be allowed to enter the area, on condition that their radiation exposure be monitored strictly.

The building, now covered by screens, was heavily damaged by a hydrogen explosion. Nearby hoses used to pour water into the reactor and huge tanks swept by tsunami waves have been abandoned at the site.

Radiation measured 100 microsieverts per hour, at which level the annual exposure limit would be reached in 10 hours.

IAEA demands access to Iran nuclear site

The head of the International Atomic Energy Agency has again urged Iran to let inspectors visit a military facility suspected of being used for nuclear arms development.

Yukiya Amano spoke at the IAEA's regular board meeting in Vienna on Monday. He criticized Iran for not providing necessary cooperation, and demanded access to the Parchin military site on the outskirts of Tehran.

Amano noted that Iran has recently begun installing a set of centrifuges with an advanced capacity to enrich uranium. He said negotiations with Iran must proceed with a sense of urgency.

Areva plans 1st nuclear fuel shipment to Japan since Fukushima

PARIS/TOKYO — French energy group Areva said Monday it was preparing to send nuclear fuel to Japan for the first time since the Fukushima disaster in March 2011, a sign of possible restarts of idled Japanese reactors.

The shipment of mixed oxide fuel (MOX) is likely to be controversial in Japan, where public opposition to nuclear power and reactor restarts remains strong in the run-up to the second anniversary of the March 11, 2011 catastrophe.

TEPCO resumes robot survey at crippled Fukushima No. 2 unit

The operator of the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power complex said Tuesday it has resumed checking the exterior of the No. 2 reactor with a tetrapod robot, although it could not determine areas where water leaks are occurring.

The investigation had stalled because the remote-controlled robot, developed by Toshiba Corp., lost balance while climbing steps and faced other problems during the previous survey in December.

On Tuesday, plant operator Tokyo Electric Power Co. sent the robot near the doughnut-shaped suppression pool at the bottom of the No. 2 reactor's primary containment vessel. It looked at areas near some of the huge pipes that connect the pool and the containment vessel.

Although the paper in itself does not prove anything other than identifying a cluster of cases, when you put it together with many other studies on occupational hazards, they tell a very startling story. So, not only is this study telling you there is a clustering and there is a hypothesis to suggest why, but the sidedness strongly supports that hypothesis. So I think this is a very scary, concerning and troubling paper that everyone in health care should be talking about it.

Yet the silence will be deafening.

Minister insists leak in reactor of nuclear submarine was 'very small'

A MINISTER has insisted a leak in the reactor compartment of Devonport-based nuclear-powered submarine HMS Tireless was "very small".

MP Philip Dunne made the statement as campaigners accused the Royal Navy of a "cover-up", suggesting the leak was more serious than first indicated.

Ian Avent, chairman of the Plymouth residents' group Community Awareness Nuclear Storage and Radiation, has called on Plymouth Moor View Labour MP Alison Seabeck to press the Ministry of Defence (MoD) for answers about safety concerns.

As previously reported in The Herald, HMS Tireless is undergoing repair in Devonport Dockyard after returning to Faslane Naval Base at the beginning February with the leak.

NRA says no to Japan’s nuclear reactor restart

This week on Monday, the head of AREVA, a French supplier of nuclear technology and fuel to Japan said that Japan would restart 6 reactors before the end of the year, and that most of Japan’s nuclear power plants would be brought back online.

“We think that there could be half a dozen reactors that will restart by the end of the year,” AREVA’s Luc Oursel told reporters Monday.  “I think two-thirds of reactors will restart” within several years, said Oursel.

Japan’s Nuclear Regulation Authority however, firmly denied these claims. “Nothing has been decided as it’s impossible for us to predict how many reactors can reopen this year before new safety measures are announced,” an official with Japan’s Nuclear Regulation Authority told AFP.

A series of hydrogen explosions had left much of the complex a tangled mess of radioactive concrete and steel. Unit three had exploded, three reactors were in meltdown and over 1000 fuel rods [assemblies] in the reactor four building, normally covered under 16 feet of water, had boiled dry, raising the spectre of a nuclear fission chain reaction. In his darkest moments, Mr Yoshizawa admits he shared the same fear as other experts – that the crisis could also trigger the evacuation of the Fukushima Daini plant 10 km away. [...]

Excerpts: "Oak Ridge researchers prove Fukushima Unit 4 spent fuel pool NEVER a danger

Rod Adams · October 16, 2012
The temperature in the Fukushima Daiichi Unit 4 spent fuel pool never exceeded 90 degrees C and the level in the pool never fell below the top of the used fuel that was stored there. The Chairman of the US Nuclear Regulatory Commission and the people who supported his testimony to Congress on the afternoon of March 16, 2011 were dead wrong.

He swore to the world that the pool was dry and the fuel was burning."

SP: We find out nearly 2 years that SFP 4 burned repeatedly because it was either very low on water, or completely dry. Who were the liars?

Fast Reactors Provide Sustainable Nuclear Power for "Thousands of Years"

Using currently known uranium resources, "fast reactors operating in a closed fuel cycle would be able to provide energy for thousands of years as well as easing concerns about waste," says Stefano Monti, Team Leader for the IAEA's Fast Reactor Technology Development Section in the Department of Nuclear Energy. Fast reactors are a versatile and flexible technology that promises to create or "breed" more fuel by converting nuclear "waste" into "fissile" material. "Fissile" material is nuclear fuel, usually uranium or plutonium that can sustain a fission chain. The heat generated by that fission chain reaction, contained within a nuclear power reactor, is used to produce steam, which then spins turbines to produce electricity. Since fast reactors "burn up" or consume material that would otherwise be considered "spent fuel", the total volume of nuclear material that needs to be handled as waste is reduced.

WASHINGTON – A House spending bill introduced on Monday would meet the fiscal 2013 funding request for sustaining the U.S. nuclear arsenal even while restricting spending across most of the federal government.

Even if approved, the appropriations amounts would remain vulnerable to reductions due to the federal budget sequester that took effect on Friday, House Appropriations Committee Chairman Hal Rogers (R-Ky.) acknowledged. The measure requires $85 billion in across-the-board funding reductions through the end of this fiscal year on Sept. 30.
