The Fukushima Disaster and Radiation in the Pacific Ocean: What Does It Mean for BC?

Engineers and Geoscientists alike will get an update on the mega-thrust earthquake in March 2011 off the coast of Japan and the subsequent tsunami which led to globally significant releases of radioactive elements from the Fukushima Dai-ichi Nuclear Power Plant.

In this presentation, the radioactive releases, transport from Fukushima and expected maximum concentrations on the west coast of North America are discussed in light of naturally occurring radioactivity and historic releases of radioactive elements from human activities. Ongoing monitoring efforts and likely impacts on environmental and public health are also discussed.
