These are computer generated simulations, not recorded data. As the website you linked to clearly says...
ATTENTION: These products are highly uncertain based on limited
information for the source terms. Please use with caution and understand
that the values are likely to change once we obtain more information on
the overall nature of the accident. The products should be considered
informational and only indicate 'worst case scenario' releases. From what
we've learned recently, it seems releases of this magnitude have not yet occurred.
Didnt the fact that the dates shown were into the future give you any clue?
Also "max on the chart" is (if you bother to look) "43e+03", or 43000 Bq/m2.
While not 'normal', it certainly isnt worth posting a new thread about.
Here's a random page talking about radiation dose...
