Accident at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant : IRSN updated reports on the impact of radioactive contamination of the marine environment and food in Japan

IRSN publishes two new information reports regarding the impact of the radioactive contamination of the environment following the Fukushima-Daiichi accident.

The first document presents and comments the latest information gathered by IRSN on the impact of radioactive release on the marine environment.

In the second document, IRSN presents its analysis of data published in Japan on the contamination of the terrestrial environment, particularly of food produced in areas impacted by the accident. Overall, the results of the first half of 2012 show a significant improvement of the situation for many categories of food (including vegetables, meat, livestock and milk), compared to spring 2011, but significant concentrations of caesium-134 and 137 continue to be measured regularly in certain types of products.
