> Aug 26, 2014: TEPCO says 1 billion Bq #tritium flowing out into the port daily, but shouldn’t it be 15 billion Bq?

> Aug 28, 2014:

  • Strontium 90 = 5 billion Bq
  • Cesium 137 = 2 billion Bq
  • Tritium = 15 billion Bq
  • Total daily outflow into the port = 22 billion Bq

A Wall Street Journal headline refers to it as “deadly strontium“.

Note that the numbers above are for the 2014 daily releases. Here’s the 2013 data:

  • Strontium 90 = ~15 billion Bq/day
  • Cesium 137 = ~22 billion Bq/day
  • Tritium = ~24 billion Bq/day
  • Total daily outflow into the port = ~61 billion Bq/day
