Title: Russian scientists find radiation off Fukushima coast
Date: Sept 14, 2012
Russian scientists have detected radiation in the north-west of the Pacific Ocean at a distance between 500-800 km to the east from Japan’s troubled Fukushima-1 nuclear power plant.
The expedition of the Russian geographical society has detected that the concentration of cesium-137 in that area exceeds the norm 10 times.
This is the first time when concentration of cesium 137 was found in the local sea waters while the air is clean.
