» NRA launched the investigation of the contamination of the seafloor

Japan’s Nuclear Regulation Authority on Sept 18th started an investigation of the contamination of the seafloor off the coast of Fukushima Prefecture to check the impact of the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant disaster.

The study of the density of radioactive cesium is being conducted with the aid of a ship that trails a radiation counter along the seafloor and will cover an area of about 1,000 square kilometers.

Studies in the past have focused on certain points in the Pacific Ocean around the radiation-leaking Fukushima plant, while the NRA’s investigation aims to analyze the spread of contamination through a broader investigation.
