WEDNESDAY, JUNE 18, 9:00 AM – 10:00 AM
More than three years after the Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear power plant accident in Japan, questions remain about how much radioactive material has been released and how widely and quickly it is dispersing across the Pacific Ocean. Join Ken Buesseler, director of the Center for Marine and Environmental Radioactivity at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI) for an update on what is known about radioactivity levels in the Pacific Ocean. Ken will also discuss how Alaskans can get involved in monitoring radiation levels through a unique collaboration between citizens and scientists to collect and analyze seawater. Sponsored by the Alaska Collaborative on Health and the Environment (CHE-Alaska), a program of Alaska Community Action on Toxics (ACAT).
