Japanese scientists are suggesting abandoning contaminated soil into the sea

Government is in charge of decontamination where it’s over 1 mSv/y.

However, their “decontamination” is only to remove the surface of the ground.
Even only from Fukushima, it’s assumed that 15 million ~ 31 million cubic meters of contaminated soil will be produced.

Because they can not stock it on land, Mr. Tanihata Isao from Osaka University and Mr. Nakai Koji from Tokyo University of Science are offering to abandon it into the ocean.

They have already taken it into consideration that Japan is accused by the world but they find it the most realistic solution for some reason.

They are supposed to pack the soil into a shelter, which is protected against corrosion and high water pressure, and leave it in 2000 meters depth of the sea.
