Radioactivity in our Ocean: Fukushima and Its Impact on the Pacific (at Mary Winspear Centre)

PART OF: Peninsula Pursuits

Course description

Three nuclear core meltdowns occurred at the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant after the Great Eastern Japan Earthquake and resulting tsunami on March 11, 2011. Most of the contamination from the site ended up in the Pacific Ocean where prevailing currents were expected to bring these radioactive isotopes to British Columbian waters. Because radioisotopes can harm living organisms when they are present at elevated levels in the environment, the Integrated Fukushima Ocean Radionuclide Monitoring (InFORM) project was set up to determine the levels of contamination here and the risks to environmental and public health. This talk describes the project, its motivations and the most recent results.
