The amount of radioactive material flowing into the ocean is relatively minimal, compared to the size of the spills that occurred in the wake of the meltdowns that occurred at the site in 2011 following an earthquake and tsunami, said Ken Buesseler, a senior scientist at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution in Massachusetts.

“We have a new release that’s smaller than 2011,” Buesseler said in a phone interview. “And it’s still far away, and the ocean is big.”
