The level of radiation in the Marshall Islands in the Pacific ocean is still dangerous to human life, though many years have passed since tests, reports Business Insider.
The publication writes that this is the conclusion reached by scientists at Columbia University, examined the soil on the Islands.
In 38 soil samples from 11 different Islands were found exceeding the radioactive elements americium, cesium and two types of plutonium. The highest concentration on the island of Bikini, where the United States conducted the largest test of a hydrogen bomb in the history of mankind.
Plutonium was discovered there more than Chernobyl or Fukushima. In addition, the researchers checked the level of radiation in the fruit of the trees in the affected areas and in the area of the crater formed as a result of the test “castle Bravo”, where in 1954 at Bikini Atoll hydrogen bomb was detonated with a capacity of 15 megatons.
Radioactive contamination on the tested objects excessively high. Despite the fact that Islands are not populated, the government is obliged to notify the inhabitants of the neighboring Islands of the danger.
States, France and Britain were carried out on the Pacific Islands tests from 1946 to 1996.
The bomb Cactus in 1958 left a deep crater on the island of Runit. Later it dumped waste from dozens of other tests. On top of the crater covered round concrete dome with a diameter of 115 meters and a thickness of 45 centimeters. Here regularly bring tourists who can take a picture directly on a concrete plate.
