Olympic Trouch Route Radiactive Contamination Measurements
#1
Japan

14th March 2018 - Measuring Radioactivity in Soil and Dust Samples from Japan


Extracts:

Among the five categories of locations, the Tokyo sample set had the lowest radioactivity mean of 117.6 Bq/kg. The following locations are ordered by increasing mean of radioactivity: Azuma Sports Park samples (2703.9 Bq/kg), main tourist routes samples (3206.0 Bq/kg) and proposed torch route samples (7896.0 Bq/kg). Only one of the non-Olympic samples, which originates from the Entrance to Fukushima Dai-ichi waste mounds, had a radioactivity of 14119.8 Bq/kg. Due to this outlier, this sample set was omitted from the other sets.

The measured results showed that the Tokyo sample set had the lowest radioactivity level, which was understandable based on its significant distance from the Fukushima Nuclear Power Plant. On the contrary, the proposed torch route samples had the highest mean radioactivity due to their close proximity to the plant. Based on the measurement, we estimated qualitatively that the radiation exposure of people living near the Azuma Sports Park area was 20.7 times higher than that of people living in Tokyo. The main tourist and proposed torch routes had radiation exposure of 24.6 and 60.6 times higher, respectively, than in Tokyo.

I think the Olympic torch runners and the crowd waving them on should be told to wear protective clothing and cover their face with at least a dust mask.

Yes, plus what else is blowing around in the wind, lots of hot particle detections in Japan.

29th January 2018 - Uranium Dioxides and Debris Fragments Released to the Environment with Cesium-Rich Microparticles from the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant


Extracts:

We report, for the first time, the atomic-scale characteristics of nanofragments of the nuclear fuels that were released from the FDNPP into the environment. Nanofragments of an intrinsic U-phase were discovered to be closely associated with radioactive cesium-rich microparticles (CsMPs) in paddy soils collected ∼4 km from the FDNPP.

These results document the heterogeneous physical and chemical properties of debris at the nanoscale, which is a mixture of melted fuel and reactor materials, reflecting the complex thermal processes within the FDNPP reactor during meltdown. Still CsMPs are an important medium for the transport of debris fragments into the environment in a respirable form.

Comment:

These small very hot particles have been blown all around the world, and particularly in Japan. A number of tests have found these types of nano sized particles in house hold vacuum cleaner dust and air filters, in Japan.

ah, now I "get it"

Doctors don't often measure radiation doses in people and experts that measure radiation can't give medical advice.  Who's going to find a connection between radiation dose and health?  Nuclear medicine uses radiation to destroy cancerous cells but then they turn around and tell us how safe radiation is.  Radiation measurements don't describe the danger to a person coming from one internalized hot particle.  

Pia, I like your definition of trouch as a truth that hurts but I found another definition online.  I didn't know trouch was even a word.  

trouch
/traʊtʃ/  
noun  
1.
(Southwest English, dialect) rubbish; junk

Yeah, I didn't think it was a word either.... vital1 knew... I found that definition at the urbandictionary
https://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=Trouch and I like the definition you found also. both applicable.

The dignitaries won't be standing in line for hours along the dusty Olympic Torch route.  They love spending time on stage in the limelight while everyone else basks in the gamma glow.  Callous to use the Olympic Games to make any claim that radiation and hot particles are safe.  Glad Vital1 added Marco's interview to give some idea how bad hot particles can be without, of course, giving any medical advice.
