Partnership Agreed with JAEA for environmental research in Fukushima

Dr Peter Martin and Professor Tom Scott from the Interface Analysis Centre recently travelled to Fukushima in Japan, to secure a five year partnership with the Japanese Atomic Energy Authority (JAEA) to work on isotopic and environmental aspects of the fallout material contaminating the area resulting from the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear accident. The week-long trip […]
