Fukushima radiation spreads to US coast - study

April 11, 2012 by legitgov

Fukushima radiation spreads to US coast - study 10 Apr 2012 Radioactive iodine was found in kelp off the US West Coast following last year's the ongoing Fukushima Daiichi nuclear meltdown, according to a new study. It was already known that radioactive iodine 131 (131-I), carried in the atmosphere, made it across the Pacific within days of the March 11, 2011, disaster, albeit in minuscule amounts.
