Radiation From Fukushima Nuclear Disaster Discovered in Sand and Groundwater 60 Miles Away

It’s been six and a half years since the giant one-two punch of an earthquake and a tsunami caused a partial meltdown at Japan’s Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear power plant. In that time, scientists have identified a broad range of consequences, from unrecognized leaks of radioactive water, to a continuing wave of plastic debris carrying new species across the ocean, to the first confirmed case of cancer caused by the incident.

Now, according to a new paper published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, there’s one more to add to the list: radioactive cesium atoms leaching into the ocean as far as 60 miles away from the plant.

Full story can be found on Newsweek.
