Also, it reported that using sandbags containing zeolite, which absorbs radioactive substance, has worked in the sea. The radiation level of the sandbags, dropped near a water outlet Sunday, stood at a maximum 0.65 millisieverts per hour, it said.

Ya, I know. It was based on 3 million gallons. My guess is it's arbitrary because TEPCO hasn't exactly been forthcoming with levels of radiation in what has gotten out. I originally left the graph out of the post from that site for that very reason. Added it after initial post. Sorry...maybe I should have left it out still. Everything is arbitrary right now. We will see what Greenpeace reports once they get on site. Anyone know the date of their arrival to begin testing water and marine life? We need folks besides TEPCO.GOV testing.

We have been trying to figure out for 780 pages how to prove that those control rods did not insert. I believe you may have just done that. Well done. Very well done. Thank you. (insert bowing dude here)
Your last few posts have been historic. Thank you so, so much for sharing your thoughts and analysis here.
California's not so happy cows...are also following this thread...closely.
They will, again, be waiting for TEPCO executives...out back.
PHOENIX, April 19, 2011 – Honeywell’s (NYSE: HON) T-Hawk Micro Air Vehicle (MAV) is helping emergency workers at Japan’s Fukushima Daiichi nuclear facility get up-close video and photos inside the plant as they work to limit further radiation releases.
Three Honeywell employees, trained to fly the unmanned T-Hawks remotely, have flown five successful missions and captured hours of video and dozens of photos of the nuclear reactor. The four T-Hawks in service at Fukushima Daiichi have been adapted to carry radiation sensors.
“The T-Hawk reminds us that innovative technologies initially created for defense purposes can find crucial roles in humanitarian and disaster recovery efforts,” Mahoney said.

It looks like some of the MSM is taking a closer look at whats going on in Japan.
Just watched on the Discovery Channel, MegaQuake: Hour that Shook Japan
Nothing that we on the ATS forum haven't already seen over the last 44 days, except for some tsunami footage.
But alot more than what has been shown in the MSM. No, ATS wasn't in the credits, but dollars to donuts they used ATS to lead them to the sources.
They have another program coming up on Thurs the 28th dealing only with Fukushima Daiichi.
Nuclear Nightmare: Japan in Crisis
The teasers for the program indicate the situation is a lot worse than most people think.
Of course ATS members in this thread excepted, I'm pretty sure we're ahead of the curve on that subject.
We'll see just how much they know...

The amount of radioactivity in seawater near the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant is about to hit the highest-ever level recorded in history. According to the Asahi Shimhun on Sunday, officials measured 1-hundred-86 becquerels per liter of radioactive substances in the sea just 34 kilometers from the crippled power plant on April 15th. This level is about 20-thousand times higher than the permissible annual standard set by the Japanese government. The highest level of contamination in history was 2-hundred becquerels per liter in the Irish Sea in the 1970s when a nuclear fuel reprocessing factory discharged cesium-137. Meanwhile, Tokyo is reportedly considering building an underground wall near the Fukushima power plant to contain the spread of radioactive material through soil and groundwater.
The reactor's inner containment vessel holding nuclear rods was intact, Edano said, allaying some fears of the risk to the environment and public. TV footage of the building housing the reactor appeared to show similar damage to Monday's blast, with outer walls shorn off, leaving only a skeletal frame.
Add FukushimaNPP Though there is variously reason to make this It doesn't write because it becomes a political comment. This is not to mock the earthquake has not made. I mean it is not. Please guess the meaning Tenpenny Tower. Explanation was requested from several, I write though I do not want to write so much.
1.When news was seen,recruited it by the nuclear power plant worker hourly wage 200,000 yen(2,378 USD).
2.However, it is impossible to work for one hour because there are a lot of radiations.
3.Money can be gotten only at the time that worked naturally.3333 yen/min(39 usd/min)
4.But When exposed to radiation, The stem cell treatment expense 200,000 yen(2,378 USD) is a portion of medical expense to be paid individually. Information source(JP) www.news-postseven.com... sankei.jp.msn.com... I have only seen this exchange FALLOUT quest of black jokes. So I made this MOD.
Q.What is the signboard on that tower? A.Former material of signboard Public anger growing against TEPCO(CNN) edition.cnn.com.../video/world/2011/04/02/lah.japan.hating.tepco.cnn ime.nu... www.4shared.com...
Q.Why chose Tenpenny Tower? A.The employee of the subcontractor is working at the nuclear plant now. But the employee of TEPCO is looking idly from the headquarters as Tenpenny. The treatment of the subcontractor is crueller than that of "The pit". Two meals a day but Breakfast biscuits.Without bath.3day vigil.The sleeping place is one blanket.(JP) www.news-postseven.com...
Q.Why RAD is a strong set? A.TEPCO has announced that the danger is within 20km. But TEPCO employee ran away to 50km out of the sphere. www.zakzak.co.jp...

We've established that there was likely 15 psi of overpressure, hanks go to SFA437 for his assessment based on his prior expertise. Along with the analysis provided by JustMike in conjunction with SFA437 that the energy output was roughly equivalent to a MOAB.
I don't think there's much of anything of either the spent fuel or the the portion that shot out of the reactor like a cannon when that thing went off. Our only slightly saving race here is that they haven't had as long with the MOX to generate that much spent fuel.
transit rules please ignore if time dilation has changed the universe
this report is very interesting as it in no way can be doubted that Tepco and the nuke industry KNOW EXACTLY HOW DANGEROUS ALL THE PARTICULATED WASTE AS AEROSOLS are and EXACTLY HOW MUCH IS BEING DEPOSITED ACROSS ( for the most part) THE NORTHERN HEMISPHERE, it is definitely why no radiation reading around four have been released and why no video of #4 popping has turned up anywhere . 3 was bad , but four had more fresh active fuel in both cases most of it was aerosolized, and just like a hot air balloon , hot , so small hot ions tend to grow VERY long legs.
One of the posters here had friends and family going to Hawaii during all this .....according to my first run through that report this seems to have been a very bad decision as one of the important things is that they equate uranium transport with cesium transport
( meaning that if you have cesium you almost certainly have uranium in equal measure , weight obviously not such a factor)
I wish Redneck were right but I believe that the silence of the gilded lambs is far more criminal than large portions of north America can bare. I do not under any circumstance believe 'the worst is over'
TOKYO (Dow Jones)--Japan's Nuclear and Industrial Safety Agency said Monday there are no data indicating that highly radioactive water is leaking from the quake-damaged Fukushima Daiichi nuclear complex, a sign that efforts to contain the radiation are working.
However, the absence of leakage may indicate that radioactive water is rapidly accumulating inside the plant, raising the urgency to find a way to process and store such water, the byproduct of a spraying operation to keep damaged reactors from overheating.
