Fukushima Daiichi June 20, 2017


(Japan time zone)

Fukushima Daiichi has been looking steamy again the last week or so. Prior to the recent resurgence in "steaminess," visible atmospheric emissions had appeared low.


The uptick in visible emissions I've seen could simply be a function of changing summer weather. I've not rule out that possibility yet.

I'm going to watch the cams this week to see if TEPCO pursues injections. Usually TEPCO's injections (Water? Nitrogen?) occur when atmospheric emissions rise. The injections, which I've documented at my blog (e.g., see here), lead to lower visible emissions.
