Cruise: Fukushima contamination


Radioactive elements from the damaged Fukushima nuclear power plant have been detected in seawater and marine organisms up to 600km from Japan. Analysis revealed eminent levels of radioactive rudiments that could be attached directly to releases from the nuclear power station. Eminent readings were also measured in sampled sea organisms, which can give attention to the pollution relative to the nearby water. 



The researchers who looked at the plankton and fish even detected a radioactive type of silvery for the first time in the open sea. The maximum of these readings is about a thousand times what could be calculated in the irrigate former to the nuclear accident. Interestingly, the cruise found these highest detections were not in areas sampled closest to Fukushima.
