TEPCO intends to send workers into the sub basement of units 2 and 3 on March 14th (a few hours from now) to inspect the torus area.
The work will consist of checking for radiation levels, temperature, humidity, water levels etc. and possibly opening the door into the torus room. TEPCO thinks workers will receive a dose of 10 mSv each for the trip. This work could be both risky and significant since there is some speculation that corium or at least very highly radioactive water may reside in the torus.
Unit 3 currently shows as .2 sV/h torus radiation
Unit 2 currently shows at 16 sV/h torus radiation at the “B” sensor. TEPCO has this flagged as failed. If this reading is accurate that is a very dangerous level of radiation.
Sievert to Gy conversion 1 Gy = 1 Sv = 1 J / kg
