Philippine Radiation Exposure Update - Cs-137 concentrations as much as 1 Becquerel/m3 by April 6

Visit the UC website to view animations here. Make sure you read their disclaimer on the main page. A 1 Bq/m3 concentration of Cs-137 (ingested) results in a dose of 0.000764068132714584 uSv/hr, a highly insignificant contribution to ones normal background dose.  These concentrations, if accurate, will probably register as the highest to date within the Philippines but are still way below levels of concern.
