Abstract

Several scientific teams have been invited to confirm French claims that their nuclear testing program in the South Pacific has so far been harmless to the environment of French Polynesia and its inhabitants. However, these investigations have left major questions and uncertainties unanswered. None of the scientific missions addressed the effects of future testing or evaluated large-scale and possible leaking events, nor have they estimated the probable transport of radioactivity throughout the South Pacific.
