Summary of Measurements from 2011-2012
The BRAWM effort was founded just after the Fukushima power plant vented radioisotopes into the atmosphere. This was a quickly organized effort to analyze the impact of Fukushima on the US West Coast. Several isotopes attributable to the releases were measured. None were found to be in harmful quantities and were orders smaller than the naturally occurring radioactive materials in the samples.
Air Monitoring Results
Air monitoring results from just after the Fukushima Daiichi plant vented into the atmosphere. Some Cs137 was observed but in very small quantities. This historically frames the current Real-Time Airmonitoring efforts at UCB.
