Fukushima Fallout: San Diego State Researchers Monitoring Sea Kelp for Radiation Exposure

It’s been nearly three years since the devastating 9.0 earthquake and destructive tsunami in Japan that caused a meltdown at the Fukishima Daiichi nuclear power plant. Among the environmental disasters that resulted from that meltdown was the leak of radioactive material into the Pacific Ocean. One big question that scientists have been asking is: Will that radioactivity reach our coast and enter our ecosystem?

Now San Diego State University researchers will be joining in a new program to monitor one of the most vulnerable areas of the marine environment —kelp beds — for radioactive isotopes.
