Testing Near the Kashiwazaki Kariwa Nuclear Plant (Japan: 2007)
Greenpeace radiation expert Rianne Teule, assisted by Stan Vincent, checks for nuclear contamination with a Gamma Spectrometer on the beach beside Kashiwazaki Kariwa Nuclear Power Plant, which suffered damage during 2007's earthquake. The quake occurred 10 km out to sea on the coast beside the Kashiwazaki Kariwa Nuclear Plant, causing damage in the town and the deaths of 10 people. The Nuclear Plant suffered damage, resulting in leaks of nuclear materials. Greenpeace sent a specialist rapid reaction team to the Kashiwazaki Kariwa Nuclear Power Plant soon after the earthquake to make independent nuclear checks in cooperation with national community groups.
