Study: Radioactive Xenon-133 In Washington Was 450,000 Times Above Detection Levels After Fukushima, Situation ‘Persisted For Weeks’ (Chart)

US Study: Radioactive Xenon-133 in Washington was 450,000 times above detection levels after Fukushima — “Persisted for weeks” (CHART) (ENENews, June 7, 2012):

Xenon-133 measurements were x450,000 our detection levels using a SAUNA-II xenon measurement system

Noble gas does not “washout,” and is the first emitted from any possible fuel damage

Levels persisted for weeks and isotopes were ultimately detected across the northern hemisphere and around the world
