FUKUSHIMA RADIOACTIVITY FOUND IN THE MARINE SNOW AT THE DEEP LAYER IN THE WESTERN NORTH PACIFIC

We carried out the sediment trap experiments in the western North Pacific during autumn, 2010 and summer, 2011. The sinking particles were collected in the area before and after the accident of Fukusihma nuclear power plant. Fission-product nuclides Cs-137 and Cs-134 were detected in the sinking particles at 5000 m depth about a month after the accident. The radioisotopes originated from Fukushima were transported to the deep ocean with marine snow immediately.
