2013 Report of Study Group on Radionuclide Science in the North Pacific Ocean (PICES

2013 Report of Study Group on Radionuclide Science in the North Pacific Ocean (PICES, an intergovernmental scientific organization made up of Canada, China, Japan, Korea, Russia, and the U.S.): [...] Chairman Dr. Zhang […] pointed out that the widespread application of nuclear science and technology and a recent nuclear power plant accident [Fukushima Daiichi] had led to increasing amounts of radionuclides released into the North Pacific. In addition, the long half-life radionuclides could potentially endanger the marine ecosystem, including human health through food chain exposures. Consequently, it is important to monitor the radiation exposure level and assess the effects of radioactive substances on marine ecosystems in the North Pacific waters.https://pices.int/publications/other/2013-SG-RS_final_report.pdf
