Watch Simulation Of 3 Million Gallons Of Dumped Radioactive Seawater Spread Through Pacific Ocean


Watch how the radioactive water dumped in Japan will spread through the ocean. As you watch keep in mind that the island is the size of California.

ASR Limited, a marine consulting and research firm, has just directly sent me a link to their seawater plume simulation which shows exactly how the 3 million gallons of highly radioactive water TEPCO dumped into the sea will spread through the Pacific Ocean.

Fukushima Daiichi Radioactive Seawater Model April

On Monday, TEPCO began discharging 11,500 tons of contaminated water into the surrounding water – a serious development in the ongoing containment issues and release of radioactive material at TEPCO’s Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Plant.

Responding to these concerns, ASR Limited, a marine consulting and research firm, has developed models to accurately predict the spread of the contaminated material.

“We’re basing our prediction on daily condition updates. This information is then fed in to our model to predict how fast and how far the radioactivity will spread.” Says ASR Scientist Laurent Lebreton who developed the model.

TEPCO called the contaminated material, ‘low-radioactive water’ from the central treatment facility.

TEPCO calls the situation unfortunate but unavoidable while neighboring countries have expressed concern over spread of radioactive material throughout the atmosphere and ocean.
