EPA: Models show “greater potential impact” to US West Coast from rainfall containing Fukushima radioactive material — California sea water with over 10 Million pCi/m3 of iodine-131 found in sample squeezed out of seaweed

EPA: Models show “greater potential impact” to US West Coast from rainfall containing Fukushima radioactive material — California sea water with over 10 Million pCi/m3 of iodine-131 found in sample squeezed out of seaweed (ENENews, Sep 9, 2014):

Environmental Protection Agency — Response to Fukushima Japan Nuclear Emergency: “Sea Water — Radioactive material released to ocean [by] intentional release of contaminated water used for cooling [and] leakage from damaged reactor… Modeling indicates greater potential impact to US coastal areas from precipitation than from [ocean] transport.”
