Kyushu University Researchers Release Radioactive Materials Dispersion Model

Author: No Comments Share:

Using the supercomputer program called SPRINTARS, researchers at Kyushu University and Tokyo University created the simulation of how radioactive materials from Fukushima I Nuclear Power Plant may have dispersed throughout the northern hemisphere. The researcher say their simulation fit the actual measurements.

It was published in the Scientific Online Letters on the Atmosphere (SOLA) under the title “A numerical simulation of global transport of atmospheric particles emitted from the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant” in June.
