About the call:
Fukushima: A View from the Ocean with Ken Buesseler
More than three years after the Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear power plant accident in Japan, questions remain about how much radioactive material has been released and how widely and quickly it is dispersing across the Pacific Ocean. Scientists at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI) are partnering with coastal communities from southern California to Alaska to collect seawater samples and raise funds for analyses that provide the latest information about radiation levels in the ocean. Join Ken Buesseler, marine chemist and director of the Center for Marine and Environmental Radioactivity at WHOI for an update on what is known about radioactivity levels in the Pacific Ocean and to learn more about the unique collaboration between concerned citizens and scientists and how Alaskans can get involved.
This call is presented by ACAT’s Alaska Collaborative on Health and the Environment (CHE-Alaska).
