One of the overlooked subjects concerns the undersea waste dumps located approximately 200 Km off the Japanese coast. These dumps need monitoring for more than just cesium.
Recent evidence shows us the approximate position of these dumps and I have been collecting the data together to find out if these dumps were affected by the great earthquake of March 2011 that caused 3 meltdowns at Fukushima Daichi.
The first evidence to look at is from Ian Fairlies presentation from the Helen Caldicott Symposium in New York. Below is a diagram of the area most impacted by the initial Large earthquake.
(It might be worth noting that the area of extreme shaking stops at the coast, leaving the nuclear power stations seemingly unaffected. I am only suspicious as Ian Fairlie also used data from Richard Wakeford (a Professor and ex BNFL sellafield) as evidence for the dose measurements. So, the dose measurements found on this PDF are likely an underestimate. There are many reasons to distrust Richard Wakeford to go into here. Please google his name for details in alternate news blogs, LLRC and Green Audit etc. Also, google his name with Chris Busby for interesting information.)
Next is the diagram of the dumps themselves. You will notice that area A3 and A2 seem to be possible targets from the heavy shaking area.

……The team will publish all study results, Wilkens says. That’s particularly important because the issue of chemical weapons in the oceans has been kept largely under wraps in many countries, Brewer says. “The topic has pretty much been a black hole.”……. Brewer and Noriko Nakayama of the University of Tokyo wrote in a 2008 article in Environmental Science & Technology. Researchers routinely sample the water column in most of the known dumping areas, “often within a few meters of the seafloor” and “without regard for or knowledge of the disposed materials,” the duo wrote. ……. But no one knows exactly where the weapons are……
….. The records usually don’t contain coordinates. In some cases, historical information only specifies “Atlantic Ocean” or “Pacific Ocean,” according to a 2007 Congressional Research Service report……
“….Finally, the Russians were dumping unprocessed nuclear waste into The Sea of Japan. As late as October 1993, the Russians confirmed that one of their ships discharged 900 tons of radioactive water from scrapped nuclear submarines….”
