K1 Project research in the Marshall Islands

Members of the K1 Project, Center for Nuclear Studies, have traveled to the Marshall Islands several times, and have engaged in two research expeditions in the region. The research trips were conducted in an attempt to learn about the Marshallese nuclear legacy, and to assess radiological conditions stemming from the US nuclear weapon testing program, which took place between 1946 and 1958.
