Keeping the Planet Blue - Nuclear Applications for a Healthy Marine Environment
17 September 2013 | We call our earth the "Blue Planet". Over seventy percent of it is indeed covered by water, but is it really blue? Look closely and you will see that in fact it's red, yellow, green, black and brown. Our seas are suffering from pollution which is coming from all kinds of man-made sources. The IAEA works with institutes worldwide to study the impact of marine pollution and find ways to prevent and manage it better.
