Fukushima’s radioactive sea contamination lingers – environment, New Scientist, September 30, 2011:
Levels of radiation in the sea off the Fukushima-Daiichi nuclear plant remain stubbornly high [...]
[M]uch of the radioactive iodine, caesium and plutonium from Fukushima was expected to rapidly disperse in the Pacific Ocean.
Instead, it seems that the levels remain high. [...]
That could be because contaminated water is still leaking into the sea from the nuclear plant, because currents are trapping the material that’s already there, or both.
