Fukushima Daiichi Radioactive Seawater Model April 5

On Monday, TEPCO began discharging 11,500 tons of contaminated water into the surrounding water - a serious development in the ongoing containment issues and release of radioactive material at TEPCO’s Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Plant.

Responding to these concerns, ASR Limited, a marine consulting and research firm, has developed models to accurately predict the spread of the contaminated material.

“We’re basing our prediction on daily condition updates. This information is then fed in to our model to predict how fast and how far the radioactivity will spread.” Says ASR Scientist Laurent Lebreton who developed the model.

TEPCO called the contaminated material, ‘low-radioactive water’ from the central treatment facility.

TEPCO calls the situation unfortunate but unavoidable while neighboring countries have expressed concern over spread of radioactive material throughout the atmosphere and ocean.
