2011-10-30 Recriticality? Iodine-131 detected in rice samples from late October by ENENEWS Admin
Oct. 30 — Iodine-131 was detected in several samples of rice from late October, according to the results of the Citizen’s Radioactivity Measuring Station, a private institution.
Other recent iodine-131 detections include:

* Recriticality? Major Japan paper reports on detection of iodine-131 in Tokyo, Kawasaki – From Oct. 18
* “Recriticality may be happening continuously” — Iodine-131 detected in Nagasaki, Miyagi (CHARTS) -From Oct. 3

Because of the relatively short half-life of Iodine-131, Fukushima Diary says, “This may prove Fukushima went back to recriticality state in September.”

2011-11-02 (for this day) Tepco blames ‘spontaneous’ and ‘natural’ nuclear fission for radioactive xenon… What about the 14,000% increase in Krypton-85? by ENENEWS Admin, published November 3, 2011
Tepco: Xenon At Fukushima Not Result Of “Critical” Nuclear Reaction, Wall Street Journal, November 2, 2011 at 11:13 pm ET:
“Tokyo Electric Power Co. (9501.TO) said Thursday the detection of radioactive xenon at its stricken Fukushima Daiichi power plant, indicating recent nuclear fission, was not the result of a sustained nuclear chain reaction known as a criticality, as feared, but a case of ‘spontaneous’ fission, Kyodo News reported.” [...]
“The utility known as Tepco has been analyzing the phenomenon” [...]
Xenon at Fukushima Isn’t From Critical Reaction, Tepco Says, Bloomberg, November 3 at 11:14 pm ET:
[...] “The discovery of xenon, announced yesterday, at the plant was caused by “natural” nuclear fission, Junichi Matsumoto, a general manager at the company known as Tepco, said today at a press briefing in Tokyo.” [...]
AS EX-SKF noted, the xenon increase in recent days has been relatively minor.
Rather it is the 140-fold increase in Krypton-85 over the past day that needs to be addressed by Tepco and the Japan gov’t.

2011-11-02 Fukushima: “Far From Any Stable Shutdown”,
Fukushima: Further Away From a Stable Shutdown Than Japanese Claimed
Radioactive xenon has been detected at the Fukushima nuclear plant, indicating that nuclear reactions are still occurring.
BusinessWeek notes that the Japanese government has confirmed the existence of radioactive xenon:

The detection of xenon, which is associated with nuclear fission, was confirmed today by the Japan Atomic Energy Agency, the country’s atomic regulator said.

NHK reports:

The operator of the crippled Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant says it found in the facility’s No.2 reactor radioactive substances that could have resulted from continuous nuclear fission.
The Tokyo Electric Power Company, or TEPCO, said on Wednesday that it detected xenon-133 and xenon-135 in gas taken from the reactor’s containment vessel on the previous day. The substances were reportedly in concentrations of 6 to more than 10 parts per million becquerels per cubic centimeter.
Xenon-135 was also detected in gas samples collected on Wednesday.
Radioactive xenon is produced during nuclear fission.
The half-life of xenon-133 is 5 days, and that of xenon-135 is 9 hours.
The utility also says it wants to take a close look at the situation of the plant’s No.1 and 3 reactors.

Bloomberg writes:

“Given the signs, it’s certain that fission is occurring,” Junichi Matsumoto, a general manager at Tepco who regularly talks to the media, told reporters in Tokyo today. There’s been no large-scale or sustained criticality and no increase in radiation, he said.
It’s possible there are similar reactions occurring in the No. 1 and No. 3 reactors, the other cores damaged at the station, Matsumoto said.
Melted fuel in the No. 2 reactor may have undergone a sustained process of nuclear fission or re-criticality,” Tetsuo Ito, the head of Kinki University’s Atomic Energy Research Institute, said by phone. “The nuclear fission should be containable by injecting boron into the reactor to absorb neutrons.”

Bellona points out:

According to Bellona physicist and executive director, Nils Bøhmer, and Dr Komei Hosokawa, head of the Department of Environmental and Social Research at Japan’s Kyoto Seika University … The presence of these gasses indicated fresh nuclear fission taking place in the hot debris of the melted fuel rods at the bottom of the container….
“This clear indication that a nuclear chain reaction is going on in one the reactors is a very bad sign. TEPCO had said that the situation would be stable within nine months after the accident,” said Bøhmer.
“Any on-going uncontrolled chain-reaction is not an indication of a stable rector, and we could face a much longer period of instability until the reactors are safe,” he said.
A TEPCO official has confirmed a so-called “partial re-criticality” incident in reactor No 2, said Hosokawa in the information he forwarded to Bellona. Hosokawa said the term “partial re-criticality was “a new vague word for [TEPCO’s] spin practice.”
Other radioactive gasses detected at the reactor, said Hosokawa, included Xenon-131m and Krypton-85, which are likely remnants of the chain reactions that occurred immediately after the earthquake and tsunami.

However, Ex-SKF reports – based on a handout from Tepco – that there was a “100-Fold Increase in Krypton-85 from November 1” to November 2nd.
EneNews notes the significance of Krytpon-85:

According to a study published in the Journal of Environmental Radioactivity, “Krypton-85 is the best indicator for clandestine plutonium separations” when conducting wide-area atmospheric monitoring.
Also, EX-SKF writes, “According to wiki, ‘About three atoms of krypton-85 are produced for every 1000 fissions (i.e. it has a fission yield of 0.3%)’.

Bellona also writes:

Japanese nuclear authorities … say the chain reactions will not affect the projected shut-own schedule. Currently the temperature at the hot zones of the reactors is been sustained at below 100 degrees Celsius by seawater constantly being pumped in.
Hosokawa, however, strongly disagreed, citing the apparent present condition of the nuclear fuel in reactor No 2, if not others.
“TEPCO so far claimed that the melted-down uranium had formed an oval shape with a cooled-down crust. Their roadmap for the “cold shutdown, if ever, is based on this condition,” said Hosokawa. “Now that they propose a quite different view regarding the condition of nuclear fuel, the roadmap vision [for shutdown] cannot be intact.”

Indeed, we’ve been reporting for months that nuclear reactions are probably still continuing at Fukushima (as have Fairewinds, Ene and Ex-SKF.)
The New York Times points out:

The unexpected bursts — something akin to flare-ups after a major fire … threaten to increase the amount of dangerous radioactive elements leaking from the complex and complicate cleanup efforts, raising startling questions about how much remains uncertain at the plant….
The plant’s owner admitted for the first time that fuel deep inside three stricken plants was probably continuing to experience bursts of fission.
It is impossible to determine exactly what state the fuel is in, given that even an intact reactor can offer only limited gauges in the form of temperature, pressure readings and neutron flow, but not visual observation. That lack of clarity is one of the most resonant lessons of the Fukushima disaster, where those trying to guide the response and assess the danger operated by what amounted to educated guesswork.
In reactors of the design used at Fukushima, that chain reaction is normally stopped when the operator gives a command to insert control rods, which rise up from the bottom of the core and separate the fuel assemblies. But when the cores of three reactors at Fukushima melted, a large part of the fuel presumably formed a jumbled mass in the bottom of the vessel, and without a strict gridlike geometry, the control rods cannot be inserted. Some of the fuel has escaped the vessel, experts believe, and is in spaces underneath, where there is no way to use control rods to interrupt the flow of neutrons.
The three reactors — together with spent fuel rods stored at a fourth damaged reactor — have been leaking radioactive material since the initial disaster, and new episodes of fission would only increase their dangers.
Re-criticality would produce more harmful radioactive material, and because the reactors are damaged, there would be a danger of a leak,” said Hiroaki Koide, assistant professor at Kyoto University’s Research Reactor Institute, whose prescient warnings about nuclear safety have won him respect in Japan.
Mr. Koide holds that the nuclear fuel at the three reactors probably melted through containments and into the ground, raising the possibility of contaminated groundwater. If much of the fuel was indeed in the ground early in the crisis, the “feed and bleed” strategy initially taken by Tokyo Electric — where workers pumped cooling water into the reactors, producing hundreds of tons of radioactive runoff — would have prevented fuel still in the reactor from boiling itself dry and melting, but would not have done anything to reduce danger from fuel already in the soil — if it got that far.
Tokyo Electric does not deny the possibility that the fuel may have burrowed into the ground, but its officials say that “most” of the fuel likely remains within the reactor, albeit slumped at the bottom in a molten mass.
But even in their most dire assessments, some experts had not expected even bursts of re-criticality to occur, because it was unlikely that the fuel would melt in just the right way — and that another ingredient, water, would be present in just the right amounts — to allow for any nuclear reaction. If episodes of fission at Fukushima were confirmed, Mr. Koide said, “our entire understanding of nuclear safety would be turned on its head.”
Some nuclear experts have debated for months whether nuclear reactions might be continuing, either in the fuel inside the reactors, or in the spent fuel pools at the plant. They have pointed, for example, to the continued reports of short-lived iodine in the spent fuel pool at Reactor No. 3.
A former nuclear engineer with three decades of experience at a major engineering firm … who has worked at all three nuclear power complexes operated by Tokyo Electric … said that tiny fuel pellets could have been carried to different parts of the plant, like the spaces under the reactor during attempts to vent them in the early days. That would explain several cases of lethally high radiation readings found outside the reactor cores.
“If the fuel is still inside the reactor core, that’s one thing,” he said. But if the fuel has been dispersed more widely, then we are far from any stable shutdown.”

Hopefully, nuclear expert Paul Gunter’s fear that we face a “China Syndrome” – where the fuel from the reactor cores at Fukushima have melted through the container vessels, into the ground, and are hitting groundwater and creating highly-radioactive steam – will turn out to be overblown (even though NHK and Tepco have allegedly confirmed that steam was escaping from underground back in June, something Fukushima workers have alleged for some time):
2011-11-02 Nuclear Reactions Have Restarted at Fukushima,
Fission Has Restarted at Fukushima
I have reported for months that nuclear reactions are probably still continuing at Fukushima.
This has been confirmed today.
Here are headlines from today courtesy of EneNews (click through to read source material):

Actually, “inside the reactor” could be a misnomer. As I noted last month:

New thermal images released by Tepco appear to confirm that the radioactive cores are not within the containment vessels.

2011-11-02 Trying to Post Power Points on Fukushima and Radiation,
I have 3 powerpoints but I have to figure out how to post them.
I think I can do it through Academia.Edu
[Editor's Note: Dr. Nadesan has posted two impressive and well-researched power point presentations on the Fukushima crisis, listed on an overview page of her works Here. Click on the following titles to see each PowerPoint:
a) Radiation and Fukushima Power Point I: Introduction to Radiation and Early Days of the Crisis
b) Fukushima and Radiation Power Point II]
I've posted (hopefully accessible) my first power point, which provides background information about radiation and human health AND addresses the Fukushima plant disaster in the first four months.
I have second and third powerpoints that will go up also when I am sure this works and I have time to post them.
The second one covers the current admission by Tepco that Fukushima is still fissioning.
Tepco only admits this now, Nov 1 after months of fissioning because the radiation levels are rising so much.
And it is possible that an explosion is imminent.
However, a number of people point out that radiation levels rising from microsieverts to millisieverts in such a short time means that even without an explosion we're going to be subject to higher and potentially still higher radiation.
What happens to life under those conditions?"
2011-11-02 New fission raises “startling questions” says NYT — Koide: Harmful radioactive material in danger of leaking after a re-criticality by ENENEWS Admin
Nov. 2 — Unexpected bursts of fission “threaten to increase the amount of dangerous radioactive elements leaking from the complex and complicate cleanup efforts, raising startling questions about how much remains uncertain at the plant” in Fukushima, reports the New York Times.
“The three reactors — together with spent fuel rods stored at a fourth damaged reactor — have been leaking radioactive material since the initial disaster, and new episodes of fission would only increase their dangers.”
According to Hiroaki Koide, assistant professor at Kyoto University’s Research Reactor Institute, “Re-criticality would produce more harmful radioactive material, and because the reactors are damaged, there would be a danger of a leak.”

2011-11-02 Krypton-85 up over 14,000% in one day at Reactor No. 2 — Kr-85 used to detect “plutonium separations” by ENENEWS Admin
Nov. 2 — “There was a “100-Fold Increase in Krypton-85 from November 1,” reports EX-SKF.
From TEPCO’s Nov. 2 press materials:
Comparison of testing done on Nov. 1 and Nov. 2 in Reactor No. 2's primary containment vessel
Krypton-85 went from .0036 Bq/cm³ (3.6 x 10-³) to 0.53 Bq/cm³ (5.3 x 10-¹).
That is an increase of over 14,000% in one day.
One might wonder why Krypton-85 was chosen as an isotope to test for, when its half life is over 10 years.

Kr-85 on Nov. 1 @ .0036 Bq/cm³

Kr-85 on Nov. 2 @ 0.53 Bq/cm³


This would seem to make it not the best indicator of recent criticality because it lasts much longer than, for example, xenon-133, xenon-135 and iodine-131.
However, according to a study published in the Journal of Environmental Radioactivity, “Krypton-85 is the best indicator for clandestine plutonium separations” when conducting wide-area atmospheric monitoring.
Also, EX-SKF writes, “According to wiki, ‘About three atoms of krypton-85 are produced for every 1000 fissions (i.e. it has a fission yield of 0.3%)’. It sure looks like a nuclear chain reaction happening, i.e. re-criticality, the possibility of which TEPCO’s Matsumoto has already admitted.”

2011-11-02 Fukushima Fissioning,
The news is circulating ever more widely that Fukushima is fissioning.
Of course, this is not really new information: fissioning has been continuous in an on-off cycle for months.
Potrblog offers an explanation of that process here:
An older but helpful discussion of the state of the reactors is available here:
Still, I am very concerned about the sudden flurry of media interest in the Fukushima story.
Speculation exists that the incredibly high reading found in Tokyo of 40,000 microsieverts an hour (40 millisieverts an hour) might have been caused by an underground nuclear explosion
No one in the blogosphere knows for sure what is happening, but we do know that something alarming must have occurred to force Tepco to rupture their narrative of "all is well and cold shutdown is near."
I will post any information I glean but keep in mind that misinformation has been the name of the game played by Tepco and the Japanese, US, and Canadian governments.
2011-11-03 New Potrblog Report,
Precipitation samples measured 59 and then 190 times background (depending upon the absorption thickness of the paper towel).
Potrblog believes Tepco has lost control of the situation at Fukushima and is unable to control the fissioning, which they believe could escalate into an explosion.
I lack the scientific knowledge or expertise to evalaute Potrblog's comments and analysis.
However, the stories being reported at Enenews (as it follows the Japanese media) are increasingly strange and disturbing
I do understand that we are most definitely in unchartered territory and it is hostile to life.
I watched a NOVA special on the fabric of the universe tonight. Last night I read the comments made at Ex-SKF about what is going on with the coriums.
It seems clear to me after watching and reading that physicists do not understand fully what is going on at Fukushima because this is, in fact, unprecedented (Chernobyl was “contained” in days) and every time physicists have an opportunity to study matter in new environments (e.g., particle accelerators) they learn new and surprising things about how matter and energy behave.
Worse, in addition to not understanding what surprises await us, it seems from the comments at Ex-SKF and Enenews that even the most technologically inclined among us (not me) do not know how to contain this MONSTER on earth.|
We have truly opened Pandora’s box.
I think the Japanese government and Tepco are frightened now. I am.
We are humbled by our misguided arrogance."
2011-11-03 Boric acid apparently not working to stop chain fission reactions because Xenon is still being detected — Tepco says this is reason why they claim ‘spontaneous’ fission, not sustained criticality by ENENEWS Admin, Fukushima xenon from spontaneous decay, World Nuclear News*, November 3, 2011 at 10:30 am ET:
“Tepco said it considered the source of the xenon to be spontaneous fission on those grounds that it had injected boric acid to the reactor vessel to reduce the likelihood of chain fission reactions but was still able to detect xenon.”
*World Nuclear News “is supported administratively and with technical advice by the World Nuclear Association”; The WNA is “supporting a fast-globalizing nuclear industry”
2011-11-03 Japan Times: It is now a “grave situation” at Fukushima — “Plutonium fission” mentioned for first time — “Criticality is very likely to have occurred” by ENENEWS Admin, November 3, 2011
Nov. 3, 8:30 pm ET (Emphasis Added) — A report published at 8:30 pm ET by the Japan Times calls on Tepco and the Japan gov’t to “find out true reactor conditions” at Fukushima.
Tepco announced Wednesday that, according to the Times, “There is the possibility that criticality, a sustained nuclear chain reaction, had occurred ‘temporarily’ and ‘locally’ in the No. 2 reactor.”
During it’s testing, Tepco has detected xenon-133 and -135, “Products of uranium or plutonium fission.”
The half life of xenon-135 is about 9 hours, therefore, “Criticality is very likely to have occurred just before the gases were analyzed,” reports the Times.
“Clearly the reactor has not yet been stabilized,” and, according to the Times, “The fact that Tepco cannot deny the possibility of criticality irrespective of its scale is a grave situation.”
And the article notes, “Conditions are similar in the Nos. 1, 2 and 3 reactors.”
Now is the time to get “serious” writes The Times:

* “Tepco should make serious efforts to accurately grasp the conditions of nuclear fuel inside the reactors.”
* “Tepco and the Nuclear and Industrial Safety Agency should take a serious view of the fact that radioactive xenon pointing to criticality was detected from the No. 2 reactor. What happened in it can happen in the Nos. 1 and 3 reactors.”

2011-11-05 (for this day) Busby: On-going fission is occurring at Fukushima — Either a recent “enriched uranium fission” or an “explosive criticality” by ENENEWS Admin, published November 6, 2011
Nov. 6 — Radiation expert Christopher Busby’s paper, The significance of Xenon isotope ratios in the Fukushima catastrophe, was posted by Mochizuki on Nov. 5.
He says the activity ratio for xenon isotopes reported by TEPCO can only result from:
1) “An enriched Uranium fission having occurred about 50 hours before the samples were measured”
2) “An explosive criticality which occurred 60 hours before the measurements”
“What these results confirm is that there is on-going fission occurring at the site,” concludes Busby.

Enenews tonight is reporting on stories that unit 2 has been fissioning again and radiation was released. This was reported first in the Japanese presss and then picked up by Bloomberg
Here is a link to a google translated version of the story in the Japanese press

Since fissioning has been ongoing in unit #1 for months and radiation releases have been CONTINUOUS since March, one has to wonder why all of a sudden the Japanese and American press are reporting on these phenomena.
Perhaps the "authorities" are preparing us for new developments and/or far worse news?
All I know for sure is if Fukushima blows again I am going to find the deepest shelter I can if the jet stream is anywhere near where I reside.

"Creating greater susceptibility to coronal mass ejections from the sun, leading to the recent unexpectedly southern aurora borealis when Fukushima radiation was subject to the sun's cme (gamma rays hitting Fukushima radiation)
That is what Potrblog is arguing.
1958 was the last year the aurora borealis was seen in Florida. Operation ARGUS may possibly have caused this episode in 1958 because nuclear physicist crazies were experimenting with introducing ionizing radiation in the upper atmosphere.
