Environmental science section
We conduct the following affairs in environmental science section.
・Environmental radioactivity Surveys around the Genkai Nuclear Power Plant
・Radioactivity standard Surveys (atomic energy regulation agency trust Surveys)
・Atomic energy disaster prevention measures (emergency monitoring)
Environmental radioactivity Surveys around the Genkai Nuclear Power Plant
We carry out environmental radioactivity Surveys to confirm security of Genkai Nuclear Power Plant surrounding environment.
(1). The measurement (in detail to this page) of atmospheric radiation dose
Using monitoring post and monitoring car which we install around power station to confirm influence (external exposure) of radiation to receive from the outside of ⼈ body,
We measure atmospheric radiation dose (space emission dose rate).
Monitoring post (as for the photograph the Hirao station)
Other than the prefecture 33 stations (prefectural management 26 stations, Kyushu Electric Power management four stations) space emission dose rates, observe about the weather such as the direction of the wind, the wind velocity, at the central monitoring station in Environmental Research Center (server)
We transmit at any time.
We measure atmospheric radiation dose on around power station major road (twice/year).
Analysis (in detail to this page) of radioactivity in environmental sample
To confirm influence (internal exposure) of radiation to receive from the inside of ⼈ body, quantity (radioactivity) of radioactive material included in environment samples such as agricultural and livestock products or marine products living thing
You gather air (the atmosphere airborne dust), ⼟, sea ⽔ premeditatedly through one year, and, other than drink ⽔ and ⽜ milk, in ⾷ thing (polished rice, vegetables, ⿂, ⾙, seaweed), measure
・Marine products living thing (fish, seaweed, shellfish) ... 19 sample
・Agricultural and livestock products, plant (grains, potatoes, fruit, culinary plants, milk, pine leaf) ... 34 sample
・Water (seawater, river water, tap water) ... 36 sample
・Soil (the bottom of the sea soil, the land soil) ... 31 sample
・Airborne dust ... 37 sample
Report and "real-time data of radiation tele meter system" (external link) which gathered result of environmental radioactivity Surveys are Nuclear power safety administration of Saga
We are released of this in page.
Radioactivity standard Surveys (atomic energy regulation agency trust Surveys)
We go for the purpose of standard grasp of environmental radioactivity in our country, and are performed in the metropolis and districts of the whole country including this prefecture.
(1). The measurement of atmospheric radiation dose
We install monitoring post for standard Surveys six prefecture and always measure.
(2). The measurement of all β radioactivity of rainwater
Whenever there is the rain in our center roof, we collect rainwater and measure quantity (beta ray) of radioactive material included in rainwater.
(3). Nuclide analysis of environmental sample
We investigate quantity of radioactive material included in agricultural and livestock products, marine products, the soil, water in the prefecture.
<the measurement material>
・Atmosphere airborne dust ... 4 sample
・Monthly descent thing ... 12 sample
・Water (tap water) ... 1 sample
・The soil ... 2 sample
・Agricultural and livestock products (rice cleaning, spinach, Japanese radish, milk) ... 4 sample
We gather national result in atomic energy regulation agency including Saga and are announced.
・Environmental radioactivity and radiation (external link) of Japan
Atomic energy disaster prevention measures (emergency monitoring)
In the prefecture based on nuclear-power disaster countermeasures guideline and Saga regional plan for disaster prevention (nuclear-power disaster countermeasures) in "monitoring plan in Saga Emergencies" at the time of nuclear-power disaster
We set about conduct of monitoring in maintenance of the monitoring system and Emergencies in Emergencies to be able to put.
