Unit 2: Nitrogen Gas Injection Into PCV Suspended - Put In New Thermometer

※7:Nitrogen gas injection is under suspension (from 22:33, October 1)


And they haven't been injecting nitrogen into Unit 3 PCV for months now.

Putting in new thermometer:

www.tepco.co.jp...


- As for the installation of Unit 2 RPV alternative thermometer, the RPV pressure was found to be higher than that measured during the mockup testing. At 10:33 PM on October 1, the flow rate of the nitrogen injected into Unit 2 PCV was changed from 5m3/h to 0m3/h (the amount of nitrogen injection into the RPV remains the same). As the amount of nitrogen injection into the RPV has been maintained at 15m3/h (the necessary minimum flow rate: 9m3/h), there should be no impact on safety. Due to the change in nitrogen injection amount, the monitoring of the hydrogen concentration in the PCV, PCV pressure, PCV ambient temperature and reactor pressure has been enhanced. As the RPV pressure has decreased (6kPa as of 5:00 AM on October 2), insertion of the coil guide (functions as a guide for thermometer installation) started at 9:39 AM on October 2. The insertion was completed at 11:57 AM on the same day.

Admission of complete Negligence topped with public relations.
They admit there is no way known to stop fukushima but they top the cake with "It's stable" Stable? It's stable like it's cold shutdown.

I bumped the contrast on these stills from Knuck's film to try and enhance a bit. 20 second mark. Looks like Fuel assemblies? {Slide pic over} The crap in the foreground looks like debris. Roof girders, pieces of overhead cranes etc.



And who knows? The glow caught my eye but it's probably from above.




Koide:
There is no such thing as clean food.
The Fukushima accident has happened and a tremendous amount of radiation has already been released and spread throughout the planet.
I do have one proposal:
… the people who advanced nuclear power be made to eat the extremely contaminated food.

Secret meetings held on Fukushima nuclear crisis's impact on human health
FUKUSHIMA -- The prefectural government here held secret meetings among a panel of experts on the nuclear crisis's impact on human health to work out scenarios for official deliberation sessions based on the view that there is no causal relationship between the disaster and the outbreak of cancer

I wonder if this is also happening in North America? I'm sure.....

Gundersen: Fill Fukushima reactors with cement and come back in 100 years — It’s too radioactive
enenews.com...
Can this be done? There are really no details with this. Would they remove as much fuel as possible first? That would take decades. One new assembly taken out in 18 months?... Would they entomb as is, with the fuel pools?

October 04, 2012
THE ASAHI SHIMBUN

Researchers trying to assess the impact of radiation on ecosystems due to the Fukushima nuclear disaster have come up with some surprising results: But they're not entirely sure what the findings mean.
However, they say the data from Fukushima Prefecture could be useful in determining when evacuated residents might eventually be allowed to return to their homes.
The field work is facing methodological difficulties as not all abnormalities detected are necessarily a direct result of radioactive substances that spewed from the nuclear power plant following reactor meltdowns caused by the Great East Japan Earthquake and tsunami.
In April last year, researchers from Nippon Veterinary and Life Science University (NVLU), along with other institutions, began sampling muscle tissue of wild Japanese macaques caught in the provincial capital, Fukushima, for radioactive cesium content.
The concentrations ranged between 10,000 and 25,000 becquerels per kilogram immediately after the nuclear crisis began to unfurl the month before.
The readings fell to 500-1,500 becquerels per kg in June, but rose again to more than 2,000 becquerels per kg from last winter to spring.
The seasonal variations presumably occurred because the macaques ate leaf buds, which are said to absorb radioactive cesium in high concentrations, the scientists said.
Shin-ichi Hayama, a professor of wild animal control at NVLU, said the results were the first ever taken for wild primates.
"This presents an opportunity to study the impact of low-dose radiation on primates, which are so close to humans, over a more than 20-year period," Hayama said. "That could help forecast the impact on humans as well."
A separate team led by Shin-ichi Akimoto, a professor of entomology at Hokkaido University, is investigating deformities in a species of plant lice in Kawamata, Fukushima Prefecture. Akimoto said he hopes to verify any impact of radiation by comparing them with plant lice found outside the prefecture.
The Environment Ministry started sampling flora and fauna in Fukushima Prefecture last November because past research focused solely on the impact on humans. This was due to a general assumption that humans and other mammals are more susceptible to the effects of radiation.
The ministry, noting rising public interest in environmental conservation and the fact that human existence is intertwined with ecosystems, decided to widen the scope of the investigation.
The International Commission on Radiological Protection designated 12 species--including frogs, trout, bees, crabs, earthworms, pine trees and wild grass--as "reference animals and plants" for surveys.
A team of researchers at the University of the Ryukyus investigated the impact of radiation on pale grass blue butterflies in Fukushima Prefecture.
They crossbred butterflies caught in the region and discovered eye abnormalities and aberrant wing color patterns in the next generation. Those morphological irregularities may be due to radiation, the scientists said.
The research results were published in early August in Scientific Reports, an online journal affiliated with Britain's Nature magazine.
In late August, however, a U.S. scientist pointed out that it was impossible to assess whether any abnormalities were induced because essential data on wing sizes was not presented.
That comment was followed by a heated online controversy.
"The report is noteworthy for pointing out the possibility of induced morphological abnormalities," said Takahisa Miyatake, a professor of evolutionary ecology at Okayama University.
But he cautiously pointed to the lack of a comparison between the frequency of morphological abnormalities before and after the nuclear disaster and the scant number of the butterflies sampled.

I was digging around in back video's of other u-tubers, and I tripped over some goodies from 011. Some of this we've seen, but the film has added footage. Others I haven't seen at all.

Unit 5 high pressure condensed water pump hill side
Looks like somethings shorting out in there.


water level measurement work in Unit 4 spent fuel pool
Note how far down they lower the testor to touch the fuel pool water.


Status of equipment hatch in the reactor building at Unit 3,
The spinning first 3 minutes we've seen, then there is some extra footage.


water flood on Unit 6 condensed water demineraliser regenerator room


Some of you might want to pay his channel a visit and download a few?

yesterday i did an extrem color edit on a dual-streamed and syncronized video from the verry first hours of the fifth of october.

i made a normal syncro of both streams, pitched them up 20 times faster.
the result i edited again with some unreal-look-a-like colors what gives us a clear view from the tbs-stream of outsteaming gases from the area around reactor nr 4.

the non-color-edited version i putted also into the video in the downy-right corner to gives you the original view too.

so please be my guest and profits an own impression of it.




@ TEPCO:Thank you for the 2 ruined birthday in a row.

And unit 1's sub-drain rad readings are going wacko....

www.tepco.co.jp...

And more info on what the purpose of the "Sub-Drain" is:


The purpose of sub-drain is to maintain the optimum groundwater level and prevent groundwater from flowing into the building by removing excess groundwater using the pump equipped in the sub-drain pit.

Noda Visits Fuku




Noda orders speeding up of decontamination

Prime Minister Yoshihiko Noda has instructed Environment Minister Hiroyuku Nagahama to speed up the decontamination of the area affected by the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear accident. Noda visited the Fukushima Daiichi plant on Sunday. This was his second visit since he assumed office. Noda spoke to approximately 200 workers at the plant. He said there will be no revival for Japan without a revival of Fukushima prefecture. He said he wants everyone to work harder to achieve the goal of decommissioning the reactors. Noda wore protective gear when he entered the building housing the number 4 reactor, which caused a hydrogen explosion in March last year. He went up to the roof and heard from officials of the Tokyo Electric Power Company about the preparations being made to remove spent nuclear fuel. Noda visited the control rooms at the number 1 and number 2 reactor buildings to learn about the situation at the time of the nuclear disaster. The lights were turned off and flashlights were used to recreate the tense atmosphere of that time. Prime Minister Noda also visited Naraha Town to inspect the decontamination work at an elementary school and the temporary storage sites where contaminated soil is being kept. Noda told reporters he was able to see the progress being made, but added that there is still a long way to go. He said the work must be carried out with a sense of tension until the very end. Noda said decontamination is the basic requirement for Fukushima's recovery and revival, and it needs to be expedited. He said he instructed Nagahama to quickly draw up new measures that include delegating his ministry's authority to its Fukushima branch to speed up the decontamination work. He added that local residents should be kept informed about the progress. Oct. 7, 2012 - Updated 14:28 UTC (23:28 JST)


Like this is some sort of a "wake up call"?

And here's Unit 1's sporadic behavior:

Sigh...it's gonna take a huge international force to hog-tie these reactors. But that would draw too much attention and damage the N-industry.
