EPA, USGS Tritium Report and Prof. Steven Jones 'minimal background radiation' "micro nuked".

More on Tritium Units and Micro Nukes in the WTC

1 Tritium Unit = 3.19 pCi/L = 0.00319 nCi/L.

3.53 nCi/L = 1,106.6 TU = 20 TU (0.0638 nCi/L - the average environmental level) X 55.33 = 55.33 Times the Tritium level that should have been found after some degree of 16 million liters of water diluted the Tritium present.

2.83 nCi/L = 887.2 TU = 20 TU (0.0638 nCi/L - the average environmental level) X 44.36 = 44.36 Times the Tritium level that should have been found - even after some degree of 16 million liters of water diluted the Tritium present.

0.164 nCi/L = 51.4 TU = 20 TU (0.0638 nCi/L - the average environmental level) X 2.57 = 2.57 Times the Tritium level that should have been found - even after some degree of 120 million liters of water diluted the Tritium present.

Now based on the Tritium report which mentions these values are 7 times less than EPA reportable. What would it take to be EPA reportable? At least 7,746 TU based on the information in the USGS Tritium report.

7 x 3.53/0.00319 = 7,746 TU. This is 6 to 7 times higher than the maximum amount of Tritium dispersed by hundreds of MegaTons Atomic Blasts in the 60's. This is at least 387.3 Times the standard amount of Tritium present in the environment - the reportable EPA level

http://toxics.usgs.gov/definitions/tritium.html - That's some awesome protection level from the EPA, possibly even worse than the EPA's "The air is safe..." right after 911.

An old and still popular unit of measuring radioactivity is the curie (Ci).
1 Ci = 37 GBq = 37000 MBq.
One curie is a large amount of radioactivity. Commonly used subunits are mCi (millicurie), ÁCi (microcurie), nCi (nanocurie), and pCi (picocurie).
1 Ci = 1000 mCi; 1 mCi = 1000 ÁCi; 1 ÁCi = 1000 nCi; 1 nCi = 1000 pCi.
Another useful conversion formula is:
1 Bq = 27 pCi.
Becquerel (Bq) or Curie (Ci) is a measure of the rate (not energy) of radiation emission from a source

http://www.ccohs.ca/oshanswers/phys_agents/ionizing.html

In SI units, one tritium unit is about 0.118 bequerels per liter (Bq/L), where the bequerel is one decay per second. In picocuries per liter, 1 TU is approximately 3.19 pCi/L. (a pico is a trillionth, a nano is a billionth).
http://toxics.usgs.gov/definitions/tritium.html

The standard range for environmental Tritium is 0.1 to 0.2 nCi/Liter.

Testing in areas other than the WTC revealed levels (less than) < 0.13 nCi/Liter.

The actual words from the report "Tritium occurs in the environment primarily as tritiated water, and much less as organically bound tritium. typical current concentrations of HTO in water in the US are 0.1-0.2 nCi/L (16)."

http://www.llnl.gov/tid/lof/documents/pdf/241096.pdf - FROM THE ACTUAL REPORT ON TRITIUM and my report on the ACTUAL REPORTING OF TRITIUM - http://www.thepriceofliberty.org/07/03/05/ward.htm.

The environmental amounts of Tritium in water is CLEARLY STATED in 0.1 - 0.2 nCi/L (although this is considerbly higher than 20 TU = 0.0638 nCi/L). The testing of samples show this to be a fact - NO SAMPLES WERE SHOWN TO BE ABOVE 0.2 nCi/L, 16 samples were less than 0.13 nCi/L, with at least 6 samples LESS THAN 0.09 nCi/L. (I could and should have used the 0.09 nCi/L or 0.0638 nCi/L as the least contaminated value, but instead did the calculations for environmental levels at 0.13 nCi/L. the values for 0.09 nCi/L or 0.0638 nCi/L would be considerably higher than 35 times or 25% higher than normal.)

THE FACT IS THAT 3 (10 ml) WTC SAMPLES RANGED FROM 25% HIGHER TO 35 TIMES HIGHER THAN SHOULD HAVE BEEN FOUND AFTER DILUTION WITH VARYING DEGREES OF AT LEAST 16 MILLION LITERS OF WATER AND POSSIBLY AS MUCH AS 120 MILLION LITERS OF WATER.

"It was determined that 3 million gallons of water were hosed on site in the fire-fighting efforts between 9/11 and 9/21 (the day of the tritium measurement; samples 6 and 7 in Table I) (42). In addition, there were two episodes of rain during the same 10-day period: on 9/14 and 9/20,21, totaling 0.9 million gallons of water in the Bathtub area. Considering the neighboring areas, we take 1 million gallons from the rain. Therefore, a total of 4 million gallons of water percolated through the debris in the first 10 days and collected at the bottom of the Bathtub."

"Based on the pumping records, a total of 30 million gallons of water passed through the Bathtub between 9/11 and 9/21 (4,46)."

Actual measurements of tritium levels in pre-1950 (pre-H-bomb testing) rain and wines shows that ordinary tritium background levels vary over a broad range, but with values up to about 10 or 11 Tritium Units. (Jones paper in the Journal of 9/11 Studies, http://journalof911studies.com/letters/a/Hard-Evidence-Rebudiates-the-Hypothesis-that-Mini-Nukes-were-used-on-the-wtc-towers-by-steven-jones.pdf

But the tritium found at Ground Zero, after 9/11, was BELOW 10 tritium units! That is, the tritium found at GZ is totally consistent with measured prosaic background levels.

Absence of tritium above background levels implies absence of mini-hydrogen bombs at the WTC.

More from the Jones letter:

“Traces of tritiated water (HTO) were detected at the World Trade Center (WTC) ground zero after the 9/11/01 terrorist attack. A water sample from the WTC sewer, collected on 9/13/01, contained (0.164▒0.074) nCi/L of HTO. A split water sample, collected on 9/21/01 from the basement of WTC Building 6, contained 3.53▒0.17 and 2.83▒0.15 nCi/L, respectively. These results are well below the levels of concern to human exposure…” http://www.llnl.gov/tid/lof/documents/pdf/241096.pdf

3.53, 3.83, 0.164 TU at GZ -- all tritium amounts are well within expectations for prosaic background levels of tritium (less than 10 TU).
