Considering there is no fuel in reactor 4 (and hasn't been for several months now) those readings in the Suppression Chamber would seem to be impossible.

Either it's being converted to steam ( four does not seem capable of sustaining this heat ) or it's leaking, or they are lying .
If it's leaking where is it going , that is an awful lot of water ... frankly I think that water is being lost but not at the rate Tepco says , I believe the number of gallons a day that Tepco claims to be using is based on the normal evap + actual leak amount that would be happening if all the heat from all the intact rods were still in the pool .
so...it's an estimate that is designed to make it seem as if there are no missing rods , clearly somewhere Between 1/2 and 2/3 of the waste rods have been lost and given that no pumping was going on in the video and the remaining rods seem to be under some water it's a safe bet that Tepco is not pumping anywhere near what they claim and are in fact only adding back water lost due to evap , and leakage for say 1/3 of the rods , given the rods 35c-85c 'safe' temperatures we might be able to estimate about less than a few thousand gallons a day if that
the implication here is that they are intentionally boiling those containments out of #4's pool at the highest safe temperature they can because they cannot keep dealing with the radioactive waste water accumulating in the basement of #4 from the run-off.
Another though occurs to me and that is they are telling the truth and all that water is still getting into the ocean somehow, so Greenpeace could help them by coming and checking it out..wait what do you mean 12 miles...
also we still lack a good clear photo of the fubarium falls region , and the possible as yet unnamed poolium deposit on the east south east side of #4 (you know those areas conspicuously missed by the drone camera of the ever so expensive and crappy quality.)edit on 30-4-2011 by Silverlok because: (no reason given)
Fuel Ponds: background
At the time of the accident, in addition to a large number of used fuel assemblies, unit 4's pond also held a full core load of 548 fuel assemblies while the reactor was undergoing maintenance, these having been removed at the end of November.
No. 4 in the absence of inspections stopped reactor fuel assemblies for, are excluded from the list.

Any news for No.4 online readings ??
This is last readings for Fukushima Daiichi ..
325.000 uSv/h = 325 Sv

Outside of America "." takes the place of "," in math. I'm prusuming that's the case, because they have no reason to report 3 decimil places when it's already 1/1000 of a Sv.
And in that case, he was right.
