do you want the area of the exclusion zone, the area of the I-131 cloud, the area of increased radiation beyond background thought to be caused by the accident, area where people received such high doses of radiation that many died of radiation sickness, area of increased cancer rate, or ?

The zirconium rods do not shield radiation so they might as well be "thin plates" if there is not anything else to provide protection (which would be containment vessels in the reactors and about 20 feet of water in the spent fuel pools).

That is why the pools being empty of water is a worst case scenario, there's nothing to shield the radiation coming from the decaying fuel and obviously nothing to keep the rods cool.

@gammite
Alright, not all water from the helies reached the destination. However, water cannons and fire trucks were being used as well. Heck, the rising vapour confirms that the cooling attempt was effective to some point - Kyodo. Why has nobody mentioned that yet?
Anyway, don't only highlight things that support your pessimistic views, please. There's enough material to support optimistic standpoints as well.
The newspaper/broadcaster articles are always reworded and their neutrality is veeeeery disputable. Mention the word "crisis" a few times, add several "frantic efforts", a ridiculous comparison or two, an "it is believed the radiation level is extremely high" (though no definite numbers) and you'll have a recipe for fear bordering on panic (aka one of the best environments for the mass media to work under). The last thing the world needs is more fearmongering speculations. While definite information is in scant supply and that could really be a stone in TEPCO's yard, at this point neither doom prophecies nor, of course, dismissal of the situation are the correct standpoints (heck, they never are!). The best thing to do in such a situation is to be objective when considering every news story that comes your way and keep an open mind about things. And while you're doing that, don't forget to have some friggin HOPE, for Overclocking's sake wink.gif

Nah, something more of the likes of testing different ways of cooling down the reactors.
