A series of studies, it was concluded that the levels of radiation in some parts of the Marshall Islands, where nuclear weapons were tested for more than 60 years ago, which is higher than the Shelter.”

The study, which was published in the scientific journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, shows that the concentration of nuclear isotopes in some of the islands, and it was well over the legal limit” in the agreements that have been coordinated between the united states and the Republic of the Marshall Islands. Soil, ocean and sediments, and various types of vegetables, as measured by the study.

In the United States and the Marshall Islands as a testing ground for 67 nuclear tests from 1946 to 1958, making the human and ecological disasters that have continued to exist to this day. (Credit: World Future Council).

“On the basis of our results, we can conclude that, in order to ensure a safe and secure relocation of the Bikini and Rongelap Atolls, continue environmental clean-up… it seems to be necessary in order to avoid the potential for harmful radiation exposure,” wrote the authors of the study, including those at Columbia University, associate professor Ivana Nikolic Hughes.

In the Marshall Islands situated between Hawaii and Australia, and many of them are still uninhabitable as a result of the nuclear tests.

“A high-yield nuclear explosions, causing massive radioactive contamination of the environment,” said one of the study’s abstract. “These” hydrogen bombs, ” as long as it is being tested on a small island in the atlantic ocean, and the evaporation from the land and to produce the radionuclides in ocean sediments. Even decades later, significant contamination may remain on the sediment surface deep into the sediment layers.”

According to the studies, the gamma rays are detected in a Bikini, and Naen Islands was as high as 648 millirems, and the 460 millirems, respectively.

The Environmental Protection Agency says that exposure to a one-time uniform whole-body exposure of 100 millirems (10 rem) or less are considered to be safe for about 99% of the people.

Sixty-seven nuclear bombs, the US detonated on the islands between 1946 and 1958, including the largest, known as the “Castle Bravo.” This was in 1954, during the early years of the Cold War, at Bikini Atoll.

“Castle Bravo”, it was “1000 times more powerful than the bombs dropped on the Japanese cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki,” according to a statement released by the University of Columbia. When the Castle Bravo test, which is the cause of a 15-ton explosion that left a crater the 0.9-mile-wide and 246 feet deep.

Radioactive fallout scattered over 6,800 square miles, and traces of radioactive material were detected in Australia, India, Japan, the united states and as far away as Europe, according to the CTBTO Preparatory Commission.
