Three Years after Fukushima: Tracking Radionuclides in the Pacific Ocean

Scientists have been keeping a close eye on how radionuclides from the Japanese power plant are being transported in the Pacific Ocean since the Fukushima Dai-ichi Nuclear Power Plant accident in March 2011. In a press conference (February 24th), researchers will discuss results from computer models predicting how cesium-137 is being dispersed in the Pacific Ocean.

Fukushima Nuclear Plant Set For Risky Operation

More than two years after an earthquake and tsunami brought disaster to a nuclear plant in eastern Japan, operators TEPCO announced plans to begin the painstaking and dangerous process of removing fuel rods from a crippled reactor at the site. Meanwhile, the site continues to be plagued by leaks of radioactive water flowing into the Pacific Ocean…
