Soil message

ICOBTE 2015 will include special sessions on trace element issues of particular relevance to Japan, including mercury and radioactive element contaminations. Many people are familiar with the Japanese history of mercury contamination and Minamata disease. The city of Minamata is located only 90 min (by train) from the conference centre and today Minamata is a model city of environmental and sustainable rejuvenation. After tragic earth quake and tsunami, a wide area of northern Japan was contaminated by radioactive contaminants from the nuclear accident at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant. ICOBTE 2015 will also include a special session on radioactive element contamination.
