Center for Marine and Environmental Radiation, Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2014:

*All sampling locations were along a straight line at 30°N. This is over 700 miles south of the most concentrated part of the Fukushima radioactive plume, which is centered at 40°N (see 2012 map at top of graphic below).
