[...] But when the plants owners TEPCO used sensors capable of measuring higher levels of radiation, they found it: four patches contaminated with 1800 miliseiverts per hour.
This amount is high enough to kill a person receiving a full body dose in just a few hours. [...]
“It makes the area a bit like a minefield because they will have to find and work around the hotspots,” said Professor Neil Hyatt, a nuclear materials chemist at the University of Sheffield.
The far greater problem facing TEPCO is how to prevent cooling water that has leaked from meeting groundwater beneath the site and heading out to sea. [...]
