The level of radiation in the forests around Fukushima has halved after the accident

The level of radioactive contamination in the forests in the Japanese prefecture of Fukushima, where the damaged Fukushima-1 nuclear power plant is located, has halved over the past two years, said NHK channel.

Thus, according to representatives of local authorities, the average annual radiation level in forests after the accident at the nuclear power plant was 0,91 microsievert per hour. Currently, this figure is fixed at 0,44 microsievert per hour.

Indicators were collected at 362 forest areas of Fukushima Prefecture. Experts believe that the content of radioactive elements in local forests will fall another 30% from the present level over the next 20 years.
