Early Online Release: Fukushima and Ocean Radioactivity, Ken O. Buesseler, Journal of The Oceanography Society, Jan. 5, 2014: [The] earthquake, tsunami, and subsequent radiation releases from Japan’s Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear power plant were unprecedented events for the ocean and society. […] Total releases [of cesium-137] from Fukushima are not well constrained, with estimates from atmospheric fallout and direct ocean discharge spanning 4 to 90 peta Becquerels (PBq), but are most likely in the 15–30 PBq range. […] Cs concentrations in benthic fish stay elevated over predictions [...] Fukushima-tagged surface waters will reach the US West Coast [in the range of] two to four years […] To determine which model predictions are more accurate would require more extensive vertical sampling across the Pacific than is currently available. Some information will be forthcoming from analyses underway in Japan and the United States, and monitoring of coastal activities along the United States […] In the aftermath of Fukushima—after years of relative complacency— the public and policymakers have rene [link to enenews.com] concerns about radioactive contamination.
