VLADIVOSTOK, October 17. /TASS/. A Russian scientific expedition left Vladivostok on Friday to study anthropogenic factors of climate changes. The expedition will last for two weeks.

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.

In late September, Russia’s’ Professor Khlyustin scientific vessel took from Vladivostok to the Sea of Japan and to the Kuril Islands a group of experts to study consequences from the accident at Fukushima. The expedition is supervised by the Russian Geographical Society. Water and air tests in the Pacific Ocean’s Kurill and Kamchatka regions did not reveal radioactive isotopes.
