Caption: The radiation plume from the 2011 disaster is expected to reach the U.S. coast by 2014, according to a model.

A website map from the University of New South Wales models how pollution moves across oceans, and predicts that the radioactive plume from Japan’s 2011 Fukushima nuclear meltdown will make its way across the Pacific to the U.S. West Coast in 2014.

According to Ecowatch, experts said the radiation will be below levels that the World Health Organization considers dangerous by the time it reaches the U.S. coastline next year. Although the level of radiation is expected to have very little effect on human health, the radiation increase will be measurable. [...]
