Observations of fallout from the Fukushima reactor accident in Cienfuegos, Cuba

Observations of fallout from the Fukushima reactor accident in Cienfuegos, Cuba. Alonso-Hernandez CM, Guillen-Arruebarrena A, Cartas-Aguila H, Morera-Gomez Y, Diaz-Asencio M. Bull Environ Contam Toxicol. 2012 May; 88(5):752-4. doi: 10.1007/s00128-012-0542-x. Epub 2012 Feb 7.

Following the recent accident at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant in Japan, radioactive contamination was observed near the reactor site. As a contribution towards the understanding of the worldwide impact of the accident, we collected fallout samples in Cienfuegos, Cuba, and examined them for the presence of above normal amounts of radioactivity. Gamma ray spectra measured from these samples showed clear evidence of fission products (131)I and (137)Cs. However, the fallout levels measured for these isotopes (135 ± 4.78 mBq m(-2) day(-1) for (131)I and 10.7 ± 0.38 mBq m(-2) day(-1)for (137)Cs) were very low and posed no health risk to the public. The doses received as consequence to the Fukushima fallout by the Cienfuegos population's (0.002 mSv per year) don't overcome the limit of dose (1 mSv per year) fixed for the public in Cuba.
