When radiation readings from water monitors around the leaking Fukushima Daiichi plant began rising this month, spiking at 7.5 million times Japan9s legal limit for radioisotopes in public water, government agencies reacted sharply. For the first time in history, the Japanese government set a limit on radiation in seafood and began screening fish. India and China recently banned imports of food products from certain areas of Japan, and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration began conducting its…

18 Late lessons from Chernobyl , early warnings from Fukushima

The nuclear accident at Fukushima in Japan occurred almost exactly 25 years after the Chernobyl nuclear accident in 1986. Analysis of each provides valuable late and early lessons that could prove

Future Directions in Conservation Research on Petrels and Shearwaters

Shearwaters and petrels (hereafter petrels) are highly adapted seabirds that occur across all the world’s oceans. Petrels are a threatened seabird group comprising 120 species. They have bet-hedging

Fukushima: Energía nuclear y medio ambiente

TLDR
An evaluation of the environment radionucleides concentrations has been obtained and it is shown that the situation is analogous to that of the Chernobil reactor accident.
