Prof. Dr. Bernd Markert and Dr. Simone Wünschmann joined the
13th ICOBTE Conference in Japan, July 12-16, 2015.
After the ICOBTE Conference in Fukuoka we had the possibility to join the Fukushima Excursion organized by the University of Fukushima.It is over four years since the Great East Japan Earthquake/ tsunami and the subsequent nuclear accident happened. In this excursion starting in Sendai, it was possible to visit Okuma, a town located at approximately 5 km west of TEPCO Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant. Until today Okuma is a restricted area (difficult to return zone). Within this area members of the Fukushima University are operating experimental fields to examine ways to reduce radiocesium uptake by crops.
