Abstract: A large amount of radionuclides was discharged into the atmosphere by the Fukushima Dai-ichi Nuclear Power Plant accident in Japan, which was caused by the great east Japan earthquake and tsunami on March 11, 2011. The radionuclides released from the FNPP1 were transferred eastward by a strong jet stream and a portion of the airborne radionuclides was deposited into the Pacific Ocean by a dry/wet deposition process. Moreover, water used to cool a damaged nuclear reactor leaked into the ocean. The results of migration processes of Cs-137 in ocean will be presented by using ocean dispersion modelling and chemical oceanography.
