Press Release (Aug 30,2011)
Partial corrections to results of nuclide analyses of radioactive materials at Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station of TEPCO provided in previous press releases
With regard to previous press releases concerning results of nuclide 
analyses of radioactive materials at Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power 
Station of TEPCO, it has been confirmed that there were some incorrect 
descriptions and therefore we hereby would like to correct them as follows 
and in the attachment.

<Corrections (categories)>
(1) Clerical errors on density limit by the announcement of reactor 
    regulation and half-life
In the press releases there were some clerical errors on density limit by 
the announcement of reactor regulation and half-life.

(2) Errors on measured value
In the press releases there were some errors on measured values in some 
results of nuclide analyses.

(3) Errors on scaling factors
In the press releases there were some errors on scaling factors which were 
calculated as the ratio of density of sample (measured value) to density 
limit by the announcement of reactor regulation.

(4) Errors on a unit in measured values
In the press releases we partly used Bq/cm3 instead of Bq/Kg by 
mistake. 

(5) Errors on calculation formula
In the press releases we used wrong calculating formulas and as a 
result we announced wrong measured values.
