During the next two or three weeks of radioactive substances from the Japanese nuclear power plant has spread worldwide. Such a strong statement made by experts to the Commission of the Comprehensive Nuclear Test Ban Treaty. Radiation to reach Europe in a few days, reports RBC Daily.
According to scientists, radioactive substances have already reached the United States and Iceland. Next in line Europe. According to the publication rates are found in the 11 to 16 per hour at mikrorentgenov natural rate of up to 30 per hour mikrorentgenov
At present, the water turbine hall of the third reactor nuclear power plant "Fukushima-1" content radiation 10,000 times higher than permissible limits. Infection rate has risen to 3.9 million becquerels per 1 cu. See While the normal levels of radiation for water reactor is several hundred becquerels.
On the eve of the Japanese government urged to evacuate all residents living within a radius of 20 to 30 km from the nuclear power plant emergency, "Fukushima-1". Stay within the 30-km zone during the day can lead to radiation dose of 1.4 mSv, which is equal to the annual rate of the standards of radiation exposure for the average person, according Dni.ru.
Meanwhile, the level of radiation in seawater near the nuclear power plant "Fukushima-1" surging, reports the BBC, referring to the state of Japanese Agency for Nuclear Safety.
Drastic excess weight was found in the analysis of water, which turned into the shoes of one of three irradiated experts who worked on the last Thursday in the turbine hall of unit. Technicians radiation dose received was 170-180 mSv / h, in addition, two of them were burned feet from beta radiation.
Now they are tested at the Institute of Radiation Medicine in Chiba. According to experts, in the water in one of the lower rooms were discovered elements cesium-137, which indicates the possibility of leakage of reactor fuel.
Near the nuclear plant iodine levels in seawater exceeds the norm by 1250 times.
