Cash wanted to help monitor Fukushima ocean radioactivity – Nature

More information to counter the wild assertions being made on the Internet over the Fukushima radiation threat.

Ken Buesseler was one of the first scientists to analyse the sea water off the coast of Fukushima, Japan, after the nuclear meltdowns that followed a devastating tsunami there in March 2011.

This week, the marine chemist, based at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution in Massachusetts, launched How Radioactive Is Our Ocean?, a crowd-funding website that urges people to support the collection and analysis of seawater samples along the west coast of the United States.

It’s well worth reading the whole article if you have any concerns over Fukushima radiation.
