“From Yomiuri Shinbun (8/30/2011):”


TEPCO announced on August 30 that the measurements done on radioactive materials at the Fukushima I Nuclear Power Plant compound and in the surrounding areas from March to May contained 94 errors.


Most errors were from transcription error or the unit errors. In one case, the recorded density of radioactive materials were one-800th of the actual number.


TEPCO says “These errors will not affect the evaluation of the amount of radioactive materials being released [from the plant]”.
