TEPCO’s air testing near each reactor unit produced an interesting situation. The readings were taken at the same locations at each reactor yet unit 5′s levels are generally higher or as high as the levels near units 1-4. Considering units 5 and 6 didn’t have meltdowns and sit a considerable distance away from units 1-4 these readings do not make sense. TEPCO provides no explanation. The cesium 134 readings were notably higher than the units that suffered meltdowns. The scaling factor and density limits used are the same for all units.
