For Pr Kanda of Tokyo University, who has been studuing the effects of radiaton on the sea since the Fukushima disaster, the official figures don’t add up:
A daily leakage of 300 tons contaminated groundwater into the ocean cannot explain the current levels of contamination of the ocean.
In his opinion, there must be other contamination routes. It is therefore not enough to focus on groundwater only. These other sources of contamination must be identified.
There may be sources of very highly contaminated water within the plant and if this shoud get into the ocean, it will have a devastating impact.
