Results Log

4/8 (12:15am): Our food chain tests have been updated to include, strawberries, topsoil, and a second grass measurement. Overall, activity in the grass seems to be falling, but the grass may be concentrating cesium by a factor of approximately 5 relative to the soil. The topsoil currently has more I-131 than any of the plant or food samples. We are continuing to sample to better understand the isotope pathways from the soil into plants.
