What does "wonder sunburn" warn of "dubious fog" occurring only around Fukui?
[October 25, 2015]

A white band obstructing vision is neither a photographing mistake nor a retouching error. Even when the mysterious fog that came to appear above Fukui from the last autumn visited this time also appeared
Four and a half after the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear accident -. "Weekly Playboy" This magazine reported with the then Prime Minister, Naoto Kan, the current situation of the accident site seen from the sea above "Fukui - chan off the coast".

The crisis still continuing in Fukui is not only the aging of the vent tower that I pointed out in the last article ("Prime Minister - Naoto Kan" for the first time "Fukuiichi" on the ocean! ) " . The concentration of radioactive substances detected from sea water inside and outside the port has only risen since the accident.

This can be considered only as the influence of the polluted water flowing from the ground of the premises and the contaminated groundwater flowing under the Fukuichi facility leaked into the sea. In addition, it is possible that a large amount of nuclear fuel debris melted from Units 1 to 3 melts out into the ground, increasing contamination of groundwater flow.

So this magazine collected 1 liter of "seawater" off Fukui off the coast and about 3 kg of "sea sand" at the bottom of the sea (depth 15 m) and asked the special institution for measurement. As a result, "Cesium 137" (half-life of about 30 years) and "Cesium 134" (about 2 years) were detected, which was released in large quantities at the time of the accident, and it was found that the influence of Fukui accident still continued.

More importantly, as with cesium, "isozo 123" (about 13 hours) released just after uranium fuel is fissioned, isotopic radioactive material "Tellur 123" (about 13 Time) was also detected in a minute amount.

As this seawater was measured over about 47 hours from the first day after collection, the fact that "tellurium 123" was detected in a trace amount means "nuclear fuel debris melt-out from Fukui at about several tens of hours before harvesting nuclear fission reaction Was it possible to wake it? "

How about the measurement result of "sea sand"? As long as it was pulled up to the ship, it was a beautiful sand that did not seem to contain mud and also mixed living clams of live clams. However, when we look at the measurement results, it contained more radioactive material than sea water.

The first attention is "uranium 235" (about 700 million years) and "cesium 134" "cesium 137" which can be called nuclear fuel itself. Other than that, cesium (cesium) such as "Thallium 208" (about 3 minutes), "Actinium 228" (about 6 hours), "Radium 224" (3 and 66 days), "Europium" Some radioactive substances with a half-life shorter than that of the other radioactive substances were also detected. Professor Susumu Ogawa (Engineering, Doctor of Agriculture)of the Nagasaki Graduate School of Engineering studies investigating the pollution enlargement pattern of Fukui accident, who went on to collect, analyzes.

"Although this uranium 235 also exists in nature, it should also be judged that it was released in the Fukui accident as seen from the sampling place, and this is the basic knowledge that can be said as textbook-like contents of radiation science, but uranium fuel If nuclear fission occurs in the nuclear reactor, all "short half-life nuclides" detected from this marine sand will be generated this time.

However, since there are no Fukui nuclear reactors already, it is reasonable to regard these short half lives nuclides and sources of uranium 235 as critical reactions of debris. If debris is missing in the ground of the building, it would be a difficult task to prevent the pollution of the sea .

However, one thing to worry about is that plutonium, which is supposed to be generated from debris of uranium + plutonium mixed fuel (MOX fuel) used only in Unit 3, is not detected from this sand. Perhaps only the debris of Unit 3 is still in the bottom of the containment vessel "(Professor Susumu Ogawa)

From the image of the exploration robot that was put into the containment vessel of Units 1 and 2 in May this year, the falling position of debris has not been located. However, since around the first half of last year when radioactive contamination suddenly increased in the sea near Fukui, there is a possibility that major changes have occurred in the position and reaction of debris of each of Units 1, 2 and 3.

Journalist Tsutomu Kirishima who interviewed Fukuiichi premises as a worker, decides this way.
"For some time after the accident, workers at the work site were talking about steam or smoke-like gas coming out from Units 1, 2 and 3. Still we do not know what's inside, so debris of Unit 3 was 1 · It is thought that it is generating fever in the place different from Unit 2.

Another thing that is worrisome is that high concentration "tritium" has been detected in contaminated water well wells near the seaside from the year before last. This radioactive substance is also called "triple hydrogen", it quickly associates with water and turns the water into special radioactive water. Fukui's nuclear reactor surroundings are often enveloped in a dense fog, but there is also opinion that this may also be the effect of tritium with increased release "

When water (water vapor) in the air is linked with triple hydrogen, the molecular weight becomes large, so it is easy for fog to occur. By the way, even in this maritime interview, from the south side Unit 4 to Units 5 and 6 on the north side, a band of about 1 km wide and a fog of about 20 m in thickness is 30 - 40 m tall from the ground in Fukui - cho, a huge nuclear reactor It was floating in the air in the upper third of the building.

On the coast of Fukushima Prefecture around June and July, a cold wind called "Yazose" is blown, and in the coastal area of Hama-dori, fog often stands in the morning and evening. Actually, even onboard this shipboard interview, I left Kyonohama Port at 9 am, and for a while the fog was hitting the coastal areas, and the Fukushima Dai 2 Nuclear Power Plant also had a thin fog layer.

But the mist of Fukuichi looked different. Even when the temperature rose near the afternoon, the thick fog layer continued to stay persistent than the other places. When sea breeze slightly strongly fades temporarily, but after a while clouds of fog appeared in the same place as Moyamoya again.
On 10th day after coastal coverage, on August 2nd, work to remove large debris falling into Unit 3 fuel pool was done. In that case, news images that seemed to cause fog to spring up from near Units 3 and 4 became a topic.

Mr. Yoichi Ozawa also said that Yoshikazu Ozawa, "Minami Soma Specific Evacuation Recommended Area Association" rich in radiation knowledge, accompanied by shipboard interviews, on this "Fukui - suki" monster, was a phenomenon of concern at a later date.

"I have many opportunities to go out to the sea from long ago, but there is no memory phenomenon that dense fog is applied only to Fukui, although it can be thought that the ground temperature is partially lowered due to the influence of the frozen soil barrier wall, It is a fact that tritium is out, so I think there is a high possibility that mist will be generated by that action, so if so, it may be related to the "worrisome event" that happened on that ship. not"

That incident is that all the interviewing team " burned " badly in a short time.After leaving the Fukui off the coast, we headed for the inspection of the large wind power generation facility "Fukushima Future" experimenting and operating at 20 km off Naraha-machi. Although at this time we gave a tomorrow, even though a few interviewing teams stayed in the cabin all the time due to seasickness, when returning to Hisahihama, the face and arms of Mr. Kan and K secretary, all of the coverage staff It was strangely red and black .In other words, it can only be thought of as "sunburning" in the time I was in Fukui off the cloudy state.

Tritium radiates a beta (beta) line when it collapses.This distance is shorter than 1 m, but it has a strong energy, and it has a strong energy.It is also concentration in the air of 1500 m off Fukuiichi which we got about an hour Was it supposed to contain high tritium, which might have acted on the skin? "(Mr. Ozawa)

If so, did we experience beta-ray external exposure by tritium ...?

Anyway, we were able to learn a lot of new facts in Fukushima prefecture we visited this time. First I realized that it is very doubtful whether the decontamination project being promoted as a pillar of the Fukushima reconstruction policy is sufficiently effective for returning evacuees. Also, fuel debris, which became missing due to the Fukui accident, may cause not only groundwater and marine pollution but also further unexpected crisis in the future.

Again, this accident should still be seen as being in a stage that requires strict monitoring.
Mr. Naoto Kan who accompanied the local coverage of this time, although the behavior and judgment as the prime minister at the time of the Fukui accident received evaluation of pros and cons, we declare that we will pour all of political life into "nuclear power plants" There.

I would like to revisit the opportunity again and I would like to succeed in the interview with Fukuiichi next time and to clarify the current situation of the accident site ....
