University of Massachusetts – Dartmouth, FVCOM Modeling Assessment of Japan’s Tsunami Event and Impacts of Radionuclides on the Pacific Ocean:

[...] The amount of radiation released in the nuclear accident has threatened the coastal environment with potential impacts on the Pacific Ocean. An international research team was established with the aim of [...] assessing the impact of radionuclides on the surrounding countries around the Pacific. [...] The ocean model used for this activity is the global-coastal nested FVCOM model system. FVCOM is an unstructured grid Finite Volume Community Ocean Model (FVCOM) [...] At 50 m, particles spread over a large region and reach the western US coast after 5 years. [...] At 200 m, particles stay in the narrow region and move eastward. >>
