10 curies that was it it came from k reactor at the Hanford site process at the 2345-Z plant were nothing ever leaked in to the soil or to the Columbia river. the old wwps is leaking the tritem so the say why is no on concern about the DOE plants clean up.who cares about Japan they have the best minds in the company working on it. they had worse the a wave hit a power plant. homes were lost people lost. i know the ci answer because i was a nuclear operator at that site. we got our own mess to clean up

Subject: Re: [ RadSafe ] How many curies were involved in Hiroshima
I haven't read all the posts on this subject, but the question needs to be
refined. It is like asking "How many gallons were released?". Gallons of what?
Hiroshima would have lots of short-lived radionuclides. There would be noble
gases, various Iodine isotopes, plutonium, Cs isotopes, Sr isotopes, U, Ba-La,
The reactor mixtures would be enhanced in the longer-lived isotopes.
Basically, asking for a release based only on a unit of a highly complex mixture
isn't productive. It should be rephrased to ask how many curies of the
radionuclides of interest and then list those that are of interest.
Could anyone please give me some facts on how much radioactivity
(curies) was released in: Fukushima, Hisoshima, Chernobyl
