Greece finds Fukushima radiation fallout

Radioecological indexes of fallout measurements from the Fukushima nuclear accident http://sciencealerts.com/stories/2051814/Radioecological_indexes_of_fallout_measurements_from_the_Fukushima_nuclear_accident.html#.UI7UmW_A9dN  Fallout from the Fukushima nuclear accident has been monitored for about 1 month in Thessaloniki, Northern Greece. Three different radionuclides, one short-lived, one relatively long-lived and one long-lived fission product were identified in air, grass and milk samples. The 131I, 137Cs and 134Cs activity concentrations in air reached 497, 145 and 126μBqm−3, respectively on 4 April, 201These radionuclides are of particular concern regarding their transfer from the environment to population through the ingestion pathways for the assessment of the Fukushima accident consequences. Radioecological indexes (eco-indexes) of fallout measurements in the air–grass–cow-milk–man pathway for 131I were determined, as they are related to radiological impact of the Fukushima derived radionuclides on the public and environment.
