Major fault line found running under nuclear reactor west of Tokyo

Posted on December 11, 2012


December 11, 2012 – TOKYO - A fault running directly underneath the Unit 2 reactor of the Tsuruga plant, operated by Japan Atomic Power Co. and located about 330 kilometers (200 miles) west of Tokyo, “could be an active one,” the panel said in a meeting to review an on-site investigation carried out Dec. 1-2 into faults within the plant’s premises. The government’s top spokesman, Chief Cabinet Secretary Osamu Fujimura, stressed, however, that steps need to be taken before any final decision. “We shouldn’t make any predictions at this stage,” he said. For one, the panel’s assessment needs to be reviewed by the new regulator, the Nuclear Regulatory Commission, and it isn’t known when the commission will meet. Still, NRC Chairman Shunichi Tanaka said the commission won’t be able to consider a request to restart the plant as long as there is a possibility the fault is active. Japan Atomic Power submitted an open letter to the NRC Tuesday asking for clarification of the experts’ views, which it said “are not fully explained and lack scientific basis.” If the commission determines there is an active fault under the unit, the company won’t be allowed to restart it, and might have to decommission it. Japan Atomic Power said the conclusion of the panel was “totally unacceptable.” The company added that “we will conduct additional surveys and prove our position with objective data.” A shutdown isn’t a foregone conclusion, experts say. “All the panel is saying is that the fault could be an active one. That means they are arguing that it is equally possible that the fault is inactive,” said Hiroaki Koide, a nuclear-reactor engineer at Kyoto University. “I suspect there is still a good chance of the reactor getting restarted in the future.” Opened in 1970, the Tsuruga plant is one of the oldest in Japan. The major fault line, the Urazoko fault, was found in 2008 to be running 250 meters (825 feet) from the two reactor buildings. Several smaller faults extending from the main Urazoko fault run directly under Unit 2′s reactor. Despite the discovery of the Urazoko fault, Japan Atomic Power continued to operate the plant, saying the smaller faults wouldn’t move in tandem with the bigger one. Some geologists have argued that the land could shift along these faults if a major earthquake triggers movement along the Urazoko fault. The March 2011 disaster at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant raised fresh concerns, and the regulator has since been reviewing the safety of all of Japan’s 50 reactors. Currently, only two reactors are operating in the country, and those also are under investigation because of concerns over fault lines. The suspension of nuclear reactors has resulted in a sharp decline in Japan’s power-generating capacity. On the northern main island of Hokkaido, the government is calling for voluntary power conservation amid rising demand due to winter weather. Supply concerns are expected to re-emerge when demand peaks again in summer. -WSJ [link to theextinctionprotocol.wordpress.com]

Geologists fear aftershocks in Japan may trigger other faults to erupt

Posted on May 26, 2011

May 26, 2011 – TOKYO - Japan’s recent magnitude 9.0 earthquake, which triggered a devastating tsunami, relieved stress along part of the quake fault but also has contributed to the build-up of stress in other areas, putting some of the country at risk for up to years of sizeable aftershocks and perhaps new main shocks, scientists say. After studying data from Japan’s extensive seismic network, researchers from the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI), Kyoto University and the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) have identified several areas at risk from the quake, Japan’s largest ever, which already has triggered a large number of aftershocks. Data from the magnitude 9.0 Tohoku earthquake on March 11 has brought scientists a small but perceptible step closer to a better assessment of future seismic risk in specific regions, said Shinji Toda of Kyoto University, a lead author of the study. “Even though we cannot forecast precisely, we can explain the mechanisms involved in such quakes to the public,” he said. Still, he added, the findings do bring scientists “a little bit closer” to being able to forecast aftershocks. “Research over the past two decades has shown that earthquakes interact in ways never before imagined,” Toda, Jian Lin of WHOI and Ross S. Stein of USGS write in a summary of their paper in press for publication in the Tohoku Earthquake Special Issue of the journal Earth, Planets and Space. “A major shock does relieve stress—and thus the likelihood of a second major tremor—but only in some areas. The probability of a succeeding earthquake adjacent to the section of the fault that ruptured or on a nearby but different fault can jump” significantly. The Tohoku earthquake, centered off northern Honshu Island, provided an “unprecedented” opportunity to utilize Japan’s “superb monitoring networks” to gather data on the quake, the scientists said. The Tohoku quake, the fourth largest earthquake ever recorded, was “the best-recorded [large quake] the world has ever known.” This made the quake a “special” one in terms of scientific investigation, Lin said. “We felt we might be able to find something we didn’t see before” in previous quakes, he said. The magnitude 9 quake appears to have influenced large portions of Honshu Island, Toda said. At particular risk, he said, are the Tokyo area, Mount Fuji and central Honshu including Nagano. –Physics.org [link to theextinctionprotocol.wordpress.com]

Still, NRC Chairman Shunichi Tanaka said the commission won’t be able to consider a request to restart the plant as long as there is a possibility the fault is active. Japan Atomic Power submitted an open letter to the NRC Tuesday asking for clarification of the experts’ views, which it said “are not fully explained and lack scientific basis.” If the commission determines there is an active fault under the unit, the company won’t be allowed to restart it, and might have to decommission it. Japan Atomic Power said the conclusion of the panel was “totally unacceptable.” The company added that “we will conduct additional surveys and prove our position with objective data.” A shutdown isn’t a foregone conclusion, experts say. “All the panel is saying is that the fault could be an active one. That means they are arguing that it is equally possible that the fault is inactive,” said Hiroaki Koide, a nuclear-reactor engineer at Kyoto University. “I suspect there is still a good chance of the reactor getting restarted in the future.” Opened in 1970, the Tsuruga plant is one of the oldest in Japan. The major fault line, the Urazoko fault, was found in 2008 to be running 250 meters (825 feet) from the two reactor buildings. Several smaller faults extending from the main Urazoko fault run directly under Unit 2′s reactor. Despite the discovery of the Urazoko fault, Japan Atomic Power continued to operate the plant, saying the smaller faults wouldn’t move in tandem with the bigger one. Some geologists have argued that the land could shift along these faults if a major earthquake triggers movement along the Urazoko fault. The March 2011 disaster at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant raised fresh concerns, and the regulator has since been reviewing the safety of all of Japan’s 50 reactors. Currently, only two reactors are operating in the country, and those also are under investigation because of concerns over fault lines. The suspension of nuclear reactors has resulted in a sharp decline in Japan’s power-generating capacity. On the northern main island of Hokkaido, the government is calling for voluntary power conservation amid rising demand due to winter weather. Supply concerns are expected to re-emerge when demand peaks again in summer. -WSJ [link to theextinctionprotocol.wordpress.com]
