The 2011 nuclear disaster at the Fukushima Daiichi power station
led to serious radioactive contamination of the environment. Due to
transportation by seasonal wind and ocean currents, these
radioactive materials have now been observed in many places in the
northern hemisphere. This book provides a unique summary of the
environmental impact of the unprecedented accident. It covers how
radioactive materials were transported through the atmosphere,
oceans and land. The techniques used to investigate the deposition
and migration processes are also discussed including atmospheric
observation, soil mapping, forest and ecosystem investigations and
numerical simulations. With chapters written by international
experts, this is a crucial resource for researchers working on the
dispersion and impact of radionuclides in the environment. It also
provides essential knowledge for nuclear engineers, social
scientists and policymakers to help develop suitable mitigation
measures to prepare for similar large-scale natural hazards in the
