On 6 November, the IAEA received an update from the Japanese Nuclear Regulation Authority (NRA) on the daily monitoring by TEPCO of seawater near the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station that indicates the concentrations of radionuclides, including Cs-134, Cs-137, as well as total Beta and H-3, measured at the sea sampling points within a 2 kilometre radius of the plant site, were relatively stable from 28 October to 3 November 2013.
In addition, the NRA provided the latest sea area monitoring results obtained from samples taken in the vicinity of TEPCO's Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station and in the open sea.
On its company website, TEPCO provides detailed information on the Unit 4 Spent Fuel Pool removal process, as well as a photograph of the transport container used to move the spent fuel after its removal from the Unit Four Spent Fuel pool.
