Post webcam observations for February 2016 here.  Observations should start with a date and ‘jst’ time (Japan Standard Time) and camera(s).  Describe as best as possible what you see.  Contribute data such as weather conditions, work activities, TEPCO or local news reports, radiation readings, earthquake activity, or any information that documents events occurring at Daiichi.  Comments and analysis welcome.  Help keep an eye on TEPCO's disaster site.

I get black/offline image on the mfile cams.
I want to see if the volcano is shaking the cam but I cannot tell.

-----------   and NO sound at all on the JNN cam. It usually has that wind noise on the mic.

Over at Tomioka Cam things look normal. No shaking..... but I caught big trucks moving dirt(?) in big blue bags. A  short convoy.

Just after midnight jst.  Observing distant glow/flame above, probably beyond, R3.  

It reminds me of the flames you see at an oil refinery that 'burns off' gases.   Of course with the cam's zoom on and weather conditions who knows what it actually is.

Dodgy  Yes, a lot of crane activities on this one.   

Whatever they take out of there has to go somewhere.  Anything they put in, will never be the same. 

My guess is the device in and out of Unit 1 is a giant wet-vac.   Sucking the highly contaminated fluids out by the truck load.  Strictly a guess.

I wonder if it could a rubble collection system or air particulate sampling system.  I would assume they are increasing the testing as they deconstruct the cover and the U1 reactor building.

February started out showing hardly any sparking so it was a good time to take a break from writing/blogging.  Had to catch up on my real job and implement some upgrades to the cam recorders.  Sparks picking up again the last couple days.  

On 2-08 I found a distortion, sparks at average of 5 per hour and two lightening strikes.

On 2-09 noticed sparks flying while glancing at the tepcam monitors so I counted the cluster.  
2-09 180001 spark to 2-09 185727 spark; 15 sparks per hour.
2-09 190924 spark to 2-09 195723 spark; 12 sparks per hour.

2-11 013009 spark
2-11 013015 spark
2-11 013313 spark
The last one at 01:33:13 was a huge orange one.  Might count 2-11 pm if I find time.

2-12 lots of crane activity over the r3 pit, looked like one of the tools was dumping dust suppression foam.  About noon noticed both cams shaking, up and down movements.  Cranes parked at 12:30.  Evening showing fogginess on the right side of cam1 making that area bright.  A few bright sparks twinkled on cam1.

2-13 Found one of those rare cam4 sparks.  The cam1 sparks were flying, some were fancy double bicolored. Found a distortion on cam1.  Look at what happens in just one minute.

2-18  Glancing at the monitors every once in awhile; it seemed like another quiet night on the tepcams.  Stopped and saved the pm recording and started up the next recording.  Watching for a few minutes, I saw lots of blinking.  Noticed the pairs where two would blink in just one second and within a minute or two, another blink, sometimes another pair blinking.  Watched for about 45 minutes off and on and noted some 15 blinks.  The next morning I stopped the recording to start a new one and to count the blinking sparks in the overnight recording.  

2-18  23:00-23:59  20 sparks, one distortion.

I don’t watch the camera as much as I used to, not as much to see.  The steaming emissions events don’t cloud up the camera views as often.  The bursts of sparks are less frequent.  The sudden cluster of 20 an hour seemed noteworthy.  The peak of the cluster was even more.  

2-18  22:36-23:33   28 sparks



2-21 sparks on c4 and c1 within a minute of each other.  
2-21  19:00-19:55  15 sparks
 
Sparks bursting in air or radiation hitting camera sensors is still open in my mind.  When there is a burst of sparks on both cams at nearly the same time; I wonder if the camera times are synced or individually set and it might be some aerial phenomena seen from different angles or something in the air hitting both camera locations closely in time.

2-23 pm  
Spark count
180211 – 185412  21
190046 – 195456  16
200427 – 205705  13
210306 – 215857  21 and 1 distortion

A summary of three nights work counting the four hours of sparks.  Counts of twenty usually are accompanied by the steamy emissions look in the camera views.  Notice how it slows to idle at 13 per hour then jumps right back up over 20.  I see the sudden bursts of activity when scanning for sparks; sometimes two or three a second; regular delays between sparks of 2 to 4 minutes in the higher counts and 10 to 14 minutes in the lower counts.  More activity usually means more doubles and bi-colored sparks.  

   

   

2-24 pm  
The sunset had that pink tinge in the air.  Mention it here because it follows nights of steaming emissions and sparks.  Perhaps not related but it was very colorful after the week worth of blue/grey sunsets.

   

The light over the r3 pit slowly blinked on.  Stayed on most of the night; mostly white, sometimes a flicker of red.  Noticed when scanning the recording that the light jumped back and forth by a very small amount. Not sure what the light is, a boat in the harbor maybe.  The light blinking or flickering makes it harder to count sparks.  

   

The light over the grid work between the cooling tower and r2 has been blinking on the cam4 view; most annoying when looking for blinking sparks.  Notice the bluish light on the south wall of unit 3 is on.  The bluish light might be a work light, noticed it comes on occasionally the last couple months.

2-23 pm spark data.  Here's another attempt to display the timing of the sparks.  Excel has issues with displaying accurate timing in graphs, it likes everything evenly spaced.  The graphs were not working for me so on to the Excel analysis toolpac.  These charts are histograms.  The frequency shows the number of sparks found in the minute intervals of the hour.  The charts display the regular timing of the spark clusters and the regular delays between the clusters.  I left the 21:40:48 distortion in as a spark because I think they're an indication of a radiologic event too. Want to mark it in the chart somehow, later, if I try this on other spark data.  Let me know if you think it's useful or not.

Wonder how much dirt it takes to mix with the stuff they're vacuuming out of unit 1 to make it read as low level waste?

Thanks, yes, it's what I noticed when counting sparks but not so easy to convey; the nuclear machine still operating.

Majia captured green stuff pouring out of one section during a period of heavy emissions in her 28 Feb 2016 update (day before she noted heavy emissions around unit 1).

2-28 pm wasn’t much going on when I reset the recordings and turned off the monitors for the night.  
2-29 am saw Majia’s post and went looking for sparks.  

http://majiasblog.blogspot.com.uy/2016/0...-2016.html

The first thing I noticed was puffs of steam coming out of r1 and then puffs out of r2.  The puffs may be just something on the lens; but as I watched, the puffs repeat in the same place.  The first puff out of r1 was an hour before midnight and the sparking and puffing increased.  Sure made for a steamy night.
