RIO5, a new international working group on marine radioactivity


At the instigation of a group of international experts led by the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, a new working group "Radioactivity in the Ocean: 5 Decades Later (RIO5)" has been created with the aim of studying the radioactivity of oceans, in depth and on a global scale.

Unique in its scope, RIO5 emerged from meetings between several experts from major bodies - including the IAEA, Fukushima University, the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, and IRSN (which represents France within the group) - following the questions raised after the Fukushima accident concerning the extent of oceanic contamination. In addition to these questions, which were raised both by scientists and the general public, the Fukushima accident prompted renewed interest in observing marine radioactivity on a global scale, an effort that had been dormant for several years, and highlighted the clear need to create RIO5.
