The Fukushima prefecture government deleted another batch of critical radiation data soon after the March 2011 disaster. Radiation readings were collected in Okuma on March 12 with a dosimeter. The prefecture government eventually collected the dosimeter but in September 2011 overwrote the data effectively deleting it rather than downloading and saving the data.
The manufacturer confirmed the data can be downloaded off the device. Not doing so lost some very critical environmental data that could have been used to better understand human exposures in the evacuation zone during the early days of the disaster. The Fukushima government was previously under criticism for not sharing then deleting SPEEDI radiation plume prediction data during the early days of the disaster.
