Media "All Clear" on Fukushima #2 Premature


From the chart above, you can see the temperature has been reduced and somewhat stabilized by the large volumes of injected cooling water.

However the difference in the daily maximum temperatures at the high-point on Feb 6 and today is only 3.4 degrees (73.3 minus 69.9). Also note, while the daily high temperatures are lower, the daily low temperatures are higher and climbing. Not a good sign.

Whether TEPCO will be able to lower the Unit 2 temperature back to the less than 50 degree range it was at prior to the piping change remains to be seen. Whether they will be able to lower the water volumes also remains to be seen. At the rate the temperature is dropping it will be weeks, if they are successful.
