gCaptain has spent the last few days working with a few government agencies (AMVER, NOAA, NASA) to determine the extent of the fallout over the pacific. As of this morning we have been unable to find any notice to mariners or other information regarding fallout zones. We have been assured by MARAD that they will gather the relevant information and disseminate a nav warning asap but, until then, I wanted to open up this thread to our members.
gCaptain is also pursuing other reader suggestions including mapping the fallout over the pacific via geiger counters installed on Navy, MSC and MARAD ships. We will post updates on these ideas as we receive feedback from the relevant agencies.
Last we have received updates from navy friends stationed in Japan who tell us that USN nuclear engineers stationed their are active in helping resolve the nuclear crisis and more navy nuclear experts are arriving from the states each day. Please join us in wishing them the best of luck.
In the meantime, if anyone has information or links relevant to other mariners in the area of Japan please post it to the following forum thread: Fall Out In The Pacific – Notice To Mariners.
