- Mountains limited spread of fallout from Fukushima
NEW YORK (AP) -- A map of radioactive contamination across Japan from the Fukushima power plant disaster confirms high levels in eastern and northeastern areas but finds much lower levels in the western part of the country, thanks to mountain ranges, researchers say
The mountains sheltered northwestern and western parts of Japan as radioactive cesium-137 emerged from the power plant and blew downwind, the scientists said.
Hum, what goes up, must come down. The issue of water pollution is widely ignored in the japanese media.
Although the initial dispersion may have been limited by the mountains, the contaminants will continue spreading. See for one of the many natures tricks to return a "blow" here: Cesium in pollen not viewed as health risk
