Radiation Levels Will Concentrate in Pockets at Certain  West Coast Locations

An ocean current called the North Pacific Gyre is bringing Japanese radiation to the West Coast of North America:

North Pacific Subtropical Convergence Zone FDA Refuses to Test Fish for Radioactivity ... Government Pretends Radioactive Fish Is Safe

The leg of the Gyre closest to Japan – the Kuroshio current – begins right next to Fukushima:

Kuroshio Current - Colour show water speed.  Blue slowest; red fastest

While many people assume that the ocean will dilute the Fukushima radiation, a previously-secret 1955 U.S. government report concluded that the ocean may not adequately dilute radiation from nuclear accidents, and there could be “pockets” and “streams” of highly-concentrated radiation.

Physicians for Social Responsibility notes:

An interesting fact for people living on the US west coast is also included in the UNSCEAR [United Nations Scientific Committee on the Effects of Atomic Radiation] report: only about 5% of the directly discharged radiation was deposited within a radius of 80 km from the Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear power station. The rest was distributed in the Pacific Ocean. 3-D simulations have been carried out for the Pacific basin, showing that within 5–6 years, the emissions would reach the North American coastline, with uncertain consequences for food safety and health of the local population.

The University of Hawaii’s International Pacific Research Center created a graphic showing the projected dispersion of debris from Japan:

Last year, scientists from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s (NOAA) Pacific Marine Environmental Laboratory and 3 scientists from the GEOMAR Research Center for Marine Geosciences showed that radiation on the West Coast of North America could end up being 10 times higher than in Japan:

After 10 years the concentrations become nearly homogeneous over the whole Pacific, with higher values in the east, extending along the North American coast with a maximum (~1 × 10−4) off Baja California.

***

With caution given to the various idealizations (unknown actual oceanic state during release, unknown release area, no biological effects included, see section 3.4), the following conclusions may be drawn. (i) Dilution due to swift horizontal and vertical dispersion in the vicinity of the energetic Kuroshio regime leads to a rapid decrease of radioactivity levels during the first 2 years, with a decline of near-surface peak concentrations to values around 10 Bq m−3 (based on a total input of 10 PBq). The strong lateral dispersion, related to the vigorous eddy fields in the mid-latitude western Pacific, appears significantly under-estimated in the non-eddying (0.5°) model version. (ii) The subsequent pace of dilution is strongly reduced, owing to the eastward advection of the main tracer cloud towards the much less energetic areas of the central and eastern North Pacific. (iii) The magnitude of additional peak radioactivity should drop to values comparable to the pre-Fukushima levels after 6–9 years (i.e. total peak concentrations would then have declined below twice pre-Fukushima levels). (iv) By then the tracer cloud will span almost the entire North Pacific, with peak concentrations off the North American coast an order-of-magnitude higher than in the western Pacific.

***

(“Order-of-magnitude” is a scientific term which means 10 times higher. The “Western Pacific” means Japan’s East Coast.)

In May, a team of scientists from Spain, Australia and France concluded that the radioactive cesium would look more like this:
A team of top Chinese scientists has just published a study in the Science China Earth Sciences journal showing that the radioactive plume crosses the ocean in a nearly straight line toward North America, and that it appears to stay together with little dispersion:

On March 30, 2011, the Japan Central News Agency reported the monitored radioactive pollutions that were 4000 times higher than the standard level. Whether or not these nuclear pollutants will be transported to the Pacific-neighboring countries through oceanic circulations becomes a world-wide concern.

***

The time scale of the nuclear pollutants reaching the west coast of America is 3.2 years if it is estimated using the surface drifting buoys and 3.9 years if it is estimated using the nuclear pollutant particulate tracers.

***

The half life of cesium-137 is so long that it produces more damage to human. Figure 4 gives the examples of the distribution of the impact strength of Cesium-137 at year 1.5 (panel (a)), year 3.5 (panel (b)), and year 4 (panel (c)).

***

It is worth noting that due to the current near the shore cannot be well reconstructed by the global ocean reanalysis, some nuclear pollutant particulate tracers may come to rest in near shore area, which may result in additional uncertainty in the estimation of the impact strength.

***

Since the major transport mechanism of nuclear pollutants for the west coast of America is the Kuroshio-extension currents, after four years, the impact strength of Cesium-137 in the west coast area of America is as high as 4%.

Bluefin tuna on the California shore tested positive for radiation from Fukushima, and there are reports of highly radioactive fish in Canada.

The CBS show The Doctors warned that we should be moderate with our fish intake, and children and pregnant women should be especially careful:

    Everyone seems to forget, that Fukushima Daiichi is currently leaking radioactive waste in to Pacific at unknown, but estimated as high, rate. It is unknown, for how long Daiichi site stopped leaking after initial destruction, and when it started to leak again. So all above presented simulations are not overly optimistic, they simply are no longer worth looking at.

  • simonhhh

    I am waiting patiently for “greenthinker” to arrive and start disputing the contents of this brilliant article…well done to this website…the rest of humanity greatly appreciates it

  • http://www.youtube.com/user/IAmDeepSpace Deep Space

    Better if they spelled it out with dead sea animals.

  • Randa

    I think several of the reactors were destroyed in the earthquake that hit Japan a few days ago. This is not fear mongering. There has been diddly squat information coming from Japan since that massive 7.5 EQ. If ANYONE has ANY information about the condition of the Fukushima reactors, please let us know (if you can).

    • mamaknock

      3 of the reactors had a complete meltdown of their core during 3/11 (China Syndrone) This has never happened and no one knows the end result. We are being used as test objects and media/gov’ts are on blackout. Some FOIA documents are coming out now. For you and others please go to youtube and search msmilkytheclown1 channel. She has the most up to date info. Peace and health to us all.

      • Randa

        Thank you! That wonderful man from Canada mentions the milky clown quite a few times. Like he mentions, we will pretty much know by the end of the day depending on what flows across the Pacific and hits the west coast in the form of death plumes.

        Genocide of the humanity, but few people on the planet even know what Fukushima is.

  • ig7

    kudos for pressing with this. I can’t believe the greatest catastrophe in mankind’s history gets 0 interest. this should be plastered on times square billboards, with countdowns to impact, to remind the sheep every day.

    • ram

      I agree with you ig7.Why is this not in the news?You know,I had not thought about this event since it happened.I was on you tube and came across some videos about it.It dawned on me it has been almost 3 yrs.So I started to look into it again,I could not believe the MSM has over looked or ignored the whole thing ! I found that to be strange?An event of this scale and not one update in 3 yrs.WTF,I feel the impact of this will have a very nasty ending.What are we to do?This could very well be our demise!You can not do what they are doing(let it go unreported) I have since thought about it every day.I do not say I have any answers.I wish I did.But standing around without doing anything should be a crime.Why have they not brought the great minds of our times together like a think tank?This has bearing on the entire world>SO comb the world and bring together the best minds in it.Yes they may not have the answers but at least it’s something.Far more than what they are doing now—-NOTHING!

  • Randa

    Latest from Michael Snyder:

    http://www.trueactivist.com/something-is-killing-life-all-over-the-pacific-ocean/

    Airborne-wise, anything along the jet stream is also getting hit. There is a moose die-off along the US/Canadian border. I live in New Hampshire and the moose are disappearing. I saw a young moose recently (in the Kancamagus) and it was clearly in trouble. Moose are not small creatures!

    This is a slow-moving ELE, recently quickened (possibly) by the further damage/destruction of the reactors (1-3).

  • amerikagulag

    We’re talking 20-40 times Chernobyl and STILL no mention about the STUXNET aspect of this whole thing. The STUXNET virus was found in the Fukushima computer system in October prior to the earthquake. After the quake, the plant exhibited many of the problems STUXNET is designed to cause.
    Any wonder why the media is silent on all this?

    I. The HAARP/Stuxnet Fukushima disaster, for the Israelis (City of London), will the be the gift, the ultimate distraction, that will keep on giving:

    c. An Israeli firm provided security for the Fukushima Nuclear plant:

    d. The Stuxnet virus would not have to be deliberately insinuated into the secure server at any nuclear plant, which usually would not be available through the Internet:
    http://www.daniweb.com/community-center/geeks-lounge/news/370462/1592873

    e. Six months before the Japanese earthquake and tsunami, Iran and Japan were making plans to building “earthquake proof” nuclear reactors.
    http://english.cri.cn/6966/2010/07/20/1461s583865.htm

    f. Meanwhile, the MSM is completely oblivious to this monumental planetary disaster:
    http://www.rense.com/general60/stun.htm

    g. Fukushima Daiichi and other nuclear disasters/wars have been the subject of several movies in which individuals and organizations have postulated that a nuclear disaster/war is inevitable, perhaps acceptable and even desirable (Fail Safe, Dr Stangelove, The Watchmen).

    II. Some considerations:

    a. It will change the calculus and timeline for “Israel’s demise”, preempting the growing global chorus of Israel critics, many of whom will now be scrambling just to survive:

    http://www.altermedia.info/civil-rights/israel-will-collapse-in-20-years-says-cia-report_877.html

    b. Many Jews, feeling threatened are leaving Israel, but would the world’s Jews return, if that was the only option in an irradiated world?

    Jews flee from Israel? ‘Right papers’ save from danger zone

    http://english.aljazeera.net/news/middleeast/2011/09/20119318251210764.html

    c. The HAARP/Stuxnet Fukushima nuclear debacle may very well be the fulfilling of a threat Israel has made against the world:

    Wikipedia: The Samson Option
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Samson_Option

    However, an overt “Sampson Option” would only lead to Israel’s annihilation.

    d. It certainly taught the Japanese a lesson that they will not be able to “go it alone” in regards to the NWO, privately controlled central banking cartel. The pending collapse of Ford and GM will now be postponed due to cratering Japanese industrial output. The Japanese culture, over 35,000 years old, now faces annihilation.

    http://www.presstv.ir/detail/173543.html

    e. The growing anti-nuke sentiment arising from the Fukushima, Fort Calhoun, Los Alamos disasters will only work in Israel’s favor, as it continues to hide its burgeoning nuclear arsenal, which now boasts missile defense technology stolen from the US.

    Israeli Spying: The Mother of all Scandals
    http://whatreallyhappened.com/WRHARTICLES/motherofallscandals.php

    f. The coming population crash due to induced environmental and economic factors (Gulf of Mexico oil spill, Fukushima nuclear debacle, food control and hyper-inflation, targeted under-employment) will reverse Israel’s growing demographic marginalization due to the world’s burgeoning population.

    g. A Review of global air mass circulation, vis a vis total available radioactive particles, looks to leave Israeli’s sphere of influence, Asia Minor/central Asia relatively unscathed by the radiation plume now covering the northern hemisphere (US, western Europe):

    Israel, Exxon, and the AEI
    http://www.nemw.net/images/jpg/nwo/pnacplanwo7.jpg

    Due to these environmental disasters, the “livable” world will shrink. As a result, Israel will emerge as the remaining major world power (thanks to US subsidies), as the rest of us are reduced back to the stone age. Israel has built its own system of D.U.M.B.s in the Negev desert. The reduction of nation states to controllable territories, without rule of law is one of the main tenants of the neoconservative philosophy.

    h. Israel’s host and erstwhile ally, the United States, is disintegrating due to the Fukushima disaster, Gulf of Mexico oil spill, corrupt economic policies (toxic mortgage CDOs, credit default swaps, tax-cuts for the rich) pursued in the wake of the so-called 911 attacks (inside job). Israel has no exposure to the toxic mortgage, as has the United States and Europe. For Israel, who looks upon the dominate US Christian theology as anathema to Judaism, a collapsed US would remove an eventual and persistent existential threat. The Japanese financial implosion will accelerate the US financial debacle.

    Celente: we are in a financial 9/11

    i. With the continental US in chaos, it will impossible to support 800 military bases world-wide.

      Revolting. You despicably blame Israel. Blame the mad men who built nuclear power plants that are EXTREMELY vulnerable to tsunamis and earthquakes. Fukushima was a disaster waiting to happen, as are ALL nuclear power plants!

      Fukushima happened because of a TSUNAMI, NOT because of Israel !

      • Greg Burton

        Let’s see…

        1. Israel’s existence is threatened by the world-wide boycott of its goods, the BDS movement.
        2. Israel has been found many times to be in violation of UN sanctions.
        3. Israel has made repeated made threats to destroy the world if its existence is threatened,
        4. Since its inception as an idea and as a scheme by the Rothschilds, adherents of the concocted state of Israel (Zionists) have repeatedly gone of record of stating that they need to come up with reasons to provide the motivation for Jewish living in the US and Europe; including using “anti-Semitism” as one of those motivators.
        5. The one country and its sovereign democratic institutions, as existed before 9/11, that stood in the way of the Rothschild-Israel scheme of creating a NWO centered around the banking/drug oligarchy was the United States of America.
        6. Since the US could and would eventually recover from the concocted toxic mortgage scam that impoverished the world, it was necessary to PERMANENTLY take out the United States, and its predominately Christian population.
        7. For many Zionist Jews, Christianity is a systemic threat to the purported race-based dominance found in the Talmud.
        8. The so-called “war on terror” pretexted by the 9/11 inside job attacks was always about over-turning the ecclesiastical institutions of the world, replacing them with the occult traditions, the Luciferian mysteries religion found in the Talmud; as well as a massive wealth confiscation by the oligarchy and police state created by 9/11.
        9. An Israeli security company was in charge of security at the Fukushima reactors, as was and Israeli firm at the 9/11 airports.
        10. Israel was the chief designer of the STUXNET virus that was programed to shut down computer software that would operate the pressure relief valves on the very same Siemens reactors operating at Fukushima.
        11. Stuxnet was found on Japanese servers in October of 2010, five months before the earthquake and tsunami.
        12. It has been shown demonstrated scientifically that HAARP has the energy to activate the potential energy of those earthquake faults found near the coastline of Japan near Fukushima.
        13. It has been documented that the US was involved in earthquake research where nuclear explosions were used as a means of triggering earthquakes along fault zones.
        14. 9/11 and Fukushima provides all that the Rothschild and Israeli ruling clique needed to permanently cement their hegemony over the world: over-turning its religions, its culture based on the Abrahamic God of justice and replacing it with their God, Lucifer; the concentrating of wealth into the hands of the few, providing a pretext for a police state mercenary mechanism that protects this Satanic oligarchy, and permanently destroying the one country, the US, that stood in the way of their goals, once US citizens realized their mistakes, took back control of their political apparatuses, and began to focus and prosecute the true criminals who used their country, their resources, their military to carve out their empire; those behind the 9/11 inside job attacks.

    Wow, only a quarter of the people they hoped for came. That’s terrible. I didn’t even here about it until after the event, and didn’t see any news coverage of it. There should be more concern and more events like this.
