This last week, officials in Hawaii received a $15,000 portable radiation detection device, paid for with federal grants, which will make it quicker to test potentially dangerous marine debris.

“Not only do you know the amount of radiation that is being emitted from this source, but also know the isotope,” explains Court Chambers, EMS Medical Analyst.

Federal and state agencies have similar technology and are working together to recover tsunami debris.
