Experts of the Russian Academy of Sciences’ institute for studies of the Pacific Ocean will take tests of water to study consequences from the accident at Japan’s Fukushima nuclear power plant, Vyacheslav Lobanov, the institute’s director, told TASS.
“We shall study the climate changes jointly with Japanese scientists. We are studying northern areas of the Sea of Japan, and they are studying the southern areas, and further on we shall exchange results,” he said.
