I was wondering it it would be worth trying to find out tracking information about the barge with the white tarpaulins on the deck? In page 706 on 15th April is around the time when it left as it came in on 31st March with fresh water in the holds. (page 484). Is it worth it now or not? Long time ago eh? Probably not.

I just want to give a huge "Thank You" to all of you incredible members who have kept this thread going. I truly appreciate your dedication to the truth.

I found this featured article in the 16 January 2013 edition of the journal Nature, and thought I would share.
Fukushima: Fallout of Fear

The author totally downplays the radiation exposure and associated risks, but does a decent job of explaining the ongoing mental anguish of the radiation zone evacuees. Worth a read.

I like the docs advice about calcium and magnesium, and of course iodine. we must live in this reality so we shall either have the intestinal fortitude to adapt and survive or we or the people whom live with us but in another 'reality' will perish.

It is good to see that the fine minds here have not diminished from the task...hard as it is...history will one day illustrate the nature of that ...will try and make the world better for everyone instead of worse for some and better for others

And as an aside to any Japanese media I say : live and work free or die in silence , you have no other choice. Remember why you became reporters, or doctors or scientists.

Obviously I have a lot of catching up to do , but the UC Davis PHD team that verified the Peroxide/hydroxide transition layer uranium / plutonium release mechanism certainly substantiated the theory proposed on this thread , a theory that predicted vast quantities of waste fluid and the need( Tepco's need) to continue polluting the ocean.

and once again document-able evidence....a bunch of "lay-men" were able to out-think and out predict the cited "experts". So either the 'experts' have been massively incompetent or lying ab initiato .

All in all it stills identifies that this thread was totally correct and that uranium and plutonium were escaping the attempts to cool (secret) meltdowns in the quantities that were being exacerbated by Tepcos obfuscations in the beginning ( and still to this day ) .

OK, well, adding to the information on the barges (which is really only necessary as background information now after all this time) after a bit more investigation - there were two barges YUGN-115 and YON-287 and at least couple of support ships 4301 & 4302 Hiuchi class vessels - of which there are 5. Three of which appeared to be helping in the Fukushima and earthquake/tsunami clearup.

The barges left the port of YOKOSUKA, Japan (NNS) alternative names - Alternative Names: KAWASAKI, YKHAMA, NEGISHI, YOKOSUKA at 11am on 25th March this link here
and took 36 hours to get to Fukushima arriving on the 27th March Link here

YON-287 modified after... This might explain some of the extra strange 'structures' we saw
and before...

Commander, Fleet Activities Yokosuka (CFAY) handed over the second of two water barges today to the Japan Maritime Self Defense Force. Together with the first barge sent yesterday, a total of 500,000 gallons of fresh water is en route the area off the coast of the Fukushima Dai-Ichi nuclear power plant to support cooling efforts for the damaged reactors. The JMSDF ship JS Hiuchi is escorting with the first barge arrival scheduled for tomorrow.

Interesting and informative website Surveillance To Go Nowhere
March 2011

for 27th March reads this...

Operation Summary
JS Hiuchi and three tugboats arrived in Onahama, Fukushima
JS Hiuchi (AMS 4301) and three tugboats (YT 68, YT 74, YT 79) arrived in Onahama near Fukushima No. 1 nuclear power station with the U.S. Navy barge (YOGN 115). After preparations in Onahama, four ships will leave for the power station in hurry.

28th March reads this...

Operation Summary
JS Hatakaze, JS Amakusa arrived in Onahama with the barge
JS Amakusa (AMS 4303) arrived in Onahama, Fukushima Prefecture with the U.S. Navy barge (YON 287) for cooling efforts in Fukushima No. 1 nuclear power station and then JS Hatakaze (DDG 171) also arrived in the port after a lookout for the escort.
The day before, JS Hiuchi (AMS 4301) and three tugboats (YT 68, YT 74, YT 79) arrived here with another barge (YOGN 115).

On the 30th March

Preparations are ongoing for cooling efforts in nuclear power stations
At Onahama, Fukushima Prefecture, three MSDF tugboats (YT 68, YT 74, YT 79) underwent improvements for radiation countermeasures prior to cooling efforts in Fukushima No. 1 nuclear power station and conducted a berthing training of the barge (YON 287, U.S. Navy) loaded with cooling fresh water.
At afternoon, JS Sawayuki (DD 125), JS Hiuchi (AMS 4301) with a U.S. barge (YOGN 115) and two tugboats (YT 68, YT 79) left the port to the nuclear power station. And estimated time of arrival is tomorrow.

on the 31st March reads

Operation Summary
JS Hyuga, JS Asuka are off the coast of Oshima island
Currently, JS Hyuga (DDH 181) is anchored and JS Asuka (ASE 6102) is underway off the coast of Oshima island, Miyagi Pref.
JS Hiuchi with the U.S. barge arrived in Fukushima No. 1 N-plant
JS Hiuchi (AMS 4301) completed escorting a U.S. barge (YOGN 115) at 15:42 (JST) and then two tugboats (YT 68, YT 79) successfully berthed the barge at a pier in Fukushima No. 1 nuclear power station.


GW is underway in Pacific Ocean to avoid radioactive fallouts
USS George Washington (CVN 73) is underway in Pacific Ocean after departed from her forward operating port at Commander, Fleet Activities Yokosuka Mar. 21 in response to the complex nature of the disaster that struck Japan on Mar. 11.

1st April

JS Hiuchi heading to N-plant with the U.S. barge
At 17:46 (JST), JS Hiuchi (AMS 4301) left Onahama, Miyagi Prefecture to the Fukushima No, 1 nuclear power station with a U.S. barge (YON 287) in support of cooling efforts for reactors.
Mar. 31, Hiuchi completed escorting another U.S. barge (YOGN 115) too.

2nd April

Operation Summary
JS Hiuchi completed escorting the U.S. barge again
At 08:28 (JST), JS Hiuchi (AMS 4301) completed escorting a U.S. barge (YON 287) in Fukushima No. 1 nuclear power station. The barge is moored alongside of another U.S. barge (YOGN 115). And MSDF already started to convey fresh water from YOGN 115 to a cooling water tank in the station.
It seems that two destroyers are on the alert in nearby waters.

3nd April

JS Oumi pumped water to a U.S. barge
At 20:09, JS Oumi (AOE 426) started to pump fresh water to a U.S. barge (YON 287) in support of cooling efforts at Fukushima No. 1 nuclear power station. And it seems that a Hatsuyuki class destroyer, maybe JS Sawayuki (DD 125), is taking the charge of decontamination supports for the barge using a high pressure water cannon.
The barge will be used to deliver water from MSDF fleet tankers off shore to another U.S. barge (YOGN 115) which supplies water at a pier for the power station.

4nd April

U.S. effort's focus will be shifted to counter Fukushima nuclear crisis in earnest, with Reagan CSG was released from the operation and resumed its original mission.

8th April

Operation Tomodachi last update
U.S. Navy's efforts as part of Operation Tomodachi finally concluded with our thanks beyond description. All U.S. Navy ships involved in Operation Tomodachi have now redeployed and are proceeding with other tasking around the region. Other U.S. military efforts are continuing ashore.

22nd April

JS Hiuchi to provide transport service for isolated island
JS Hiuchi (AMS 4301) transported aid supplies for Oshima island, Kesen'numa City, Miyagi Pref. Oshima is not only the biggest residential island of Northern Honshu, but an isolated island. In addition, the regular line service between the island and Honshu is yet to resume. So MSDF has continued transport service for the island (maybe between Kesen'numa port).
Hiuchi had participated in supports of cooling efforts for reactors at Fukushima No. 1

Then nothing at all about the 2 barges leaving Fukushima but a few more comments about a search for dead bodies a month after the tsunami.

let"s say for a second that the nuker industry and the amazingly non-data gathering EPA ( I Use those capitols as a very unfunny joke) are right ....and that no radiation from fuku is effecting the US in any significant way.

So then I guess that a priory started on this thread about increased disease virulence is merely co-incidental to the stats that this , in the US has been the worst 'flu' season in recent memory by almost an order of magnitude...and it is only Late January?

I mean AC noted. no one would need to affect public 'MEME'S" to keep information from spreading across the newest extension of the most effective sales tool; the grapevine ( socialmedia ) as merely an academic project while the worst MAN MADE nuclear disaster in the recorded history of our race is occurring and being consistently left out of the dollop's of "infotainment" that are somehow legally allowed to be called "news" ...

I mean ...RIGHT?

Are we as a race that stupid?...

perhaps....this year represents the "sneeze": in disease evolution and has NOTHING to do with in it's new radiation 'home' ( (framework) across the northern hemisphere)

As we have seen the "in Charge" people shaping FUKU's , ' unbelievable' disaster ( now close to it's second anniversary) as merely a "BLIP" in the NUKER industry are. and have been lying and obfuscating on purpose , because ...obviously... when you think you are a god you are , and the common man and the future are either poker chips or figments of their own imagination .

thanks for the barge reboot Q , I think you are on the right path

Nuckelchen; I have read all your posts and watched all your videos.You are probably the most qualified person on that I can find to ask my question. I have been trying to figure out dose-rates and their conversions etc. Would you by any chance happen to know how many Bequerels of radiation would be a lethal dose over any given amount of time(5-10 years would be ideal). Any help would be great(I live on the west coast of British Columbia). To the NUCK; The best of luck-CHEERS.

Any help you can provide will be much appreciated and you can take as much time as you want/need. I hope this question is not a burden.I am not very good with computers and I have not been able to find this information with the ease I thought it would be available. You do very good work and that is the reason I have asked you this question. Take all the time you need,there is no rush.I have an infinite amount of patience. You do a great service to humanity by using you intellect to inform others-you are a saint.Thank you,and keep up the good and noble work.
