Is Radioactivity from Fukushima a Problem for the U.S.?

3107 Etcheverry Hall
The March 2011 accident at the Fukushima nuclear reactor complex caused a large amount of radioactivity to be dispersed into the environment. This produced serious contamination in and around the Fukushima area of Japan. There has been a great deal of concern about the extent to which this radioactivity could be transported to the U.S. and potentially cause health problems here. This talk describes a series of ongoing measurements done at UC Berkeley to address this issue.
