Focus: Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant Disaster

FukushimaExplosionRadioactive materials in the form of gasses and particulate matter continue to be released into atmosphere in Japan. These emissions are carried over the Pacific on easterly weather patterns and are deposited in North America.

In addition to the emissions from the plant, the government of Japan has decided that the best way to dispose of disaster debris from the earthquake and tsunami (which triggered the nuclear disaster) is incineration! A large amount of this debris is contaminated with radioactive materials. The net result is that the radioactive materials are re-aerosolized and reintroduced into the atmosphere.

Typically the greater portion of the solid radioactive materials are via rainout.
