How Close Is Fukushima Nuclear Accident Contaminated Water to Us?

The increase in tritium concentration caused by Fukushima discharge over a decade.

Macroscopic and microscopic simulations of Fukushima nuclear accident contaminated water discharge.

On August26,  2021, the Japanese Cabinet passed a bill to discharge treated Fukushima nuclear accident contaminated water into the Pacific Ocean to alleviate the problem of nuclear wastewater storage. However, large amounts of radionuclides can affect marine biological chains when inhaled by marine life and adversely influence marine fisheries and human health. The global effects of Fukushima discharge, which will last 30-40 years, remain unknown. Thus, identifying the diffusion process of radioactive water in oceans is critical.

To solve this…
