Radioactive contamination from Fukushima has drifted as far north as a remote Alaskan island, scientists discover
A 2011 quake and tsunami sent Fukushima Daiichi plant's reactors to meltdown
•Radiation was leaked into the air, soil and ocean from the plant in eastern Japan
•Water tests revealed cesium-137 near St Lawrence Island in the Bering Strait
•But the levels need to be more than 3,000-times higher to pose a safety concern


Radioactive contamination from Japan's Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant hit by a tsunami in 2011 has drifted as far north as waters off a remote Alaskan island.

Scientists said on Wednesday that analysis of seawater collected last year near St. Lawrence Island in the Bering Strait revealed a slight elevation in levels of radioactive cesium-137 attributable to the Fukushima disaster.

'This is the northern edge of the plume,' said Gay Sheffield, a Sea Grant marine advisory agent based in the Bering Sea town of Nome, Alaska

The newly detected Fukushima radiation was minute. The level of cesium-137, a byproduct of nuclear fission, in seawater was just four-tenths as high as traces of the isotope naturally found in the Pacific Ocean.


Those levels are far too low to pose a health concern, an important point for people living on the Bering Sea coast who survive on food caught in the ocean, Sheffield said.

Re: Radioactive contamination from Fukushima has drifted as far north as a remote Alaskan island, scientists discover
I have been watching the radiation levels in America since the disaster. The west coast of America is still much higher (although not high enough to alarm any "experts") than it was before the tsunami. In most cases it is double what it used to be. That is still not as high as where I live, at over 6000 ft in the Rockies. It's actually about half to a third of my local counts. That does not lessen the fact that west coast radiation is still much higher than it was.
Hope for the best, but prepare for the worst.
