UPDATED APR-27-2011. Increased radiations: the colors represent the radioactive ALTERATION caused by the Fukushima accident on the natural, pre-nuclear accident radiation values. These data represent how the actual natural radiation of the area has been changed by the NPP emissions, like the core blowouts and the nuclear coolant leakages. The black dots and the white numbers, instead, represent simply the raw radiation of the area "as it is", indipendently from the natural, usual pre-fallout radiation. The peak is of course at Fukushima, again, and the value is completely off-scale compared to any other in Japan (SEE NOTE). NOTE: Data on the Fukushima prefecture are absolutely official and real but not as precise as the others, as they are the result of single, daily-updated readings taken about 20 km NW of Fukushima NPP by a special police unit (counter NBC). That specific location shows day after day some terrific, off-scale radiation levels, the highest measured outside the 20 kms exclusion range from the Fukishima-Daichii NPP, and I chose to select them to report the potential danger of the area, not the radiation actually present in every single part of that prefecture. Lately, the monitoring post #83, the most radioactive monitored at 20 kms from the nuclear site, has been suppressed in favour of less radioactive ones, so I keep showing the last available data on site #83 as i consider that more representative.
