Radioactivity 101

Design / Illustration by Eric S. Taylor, WHOI Graphic Services

The Challenge

How do you explain the incredibly complex decay chain of radioactivity in a graphic? Oceanus Magazine needed just such an illustration to describe how radioactivity works for a special Fukushima edition.

The Solution

Eric and the editors decided that creating a step-by-step infographic would help the readers better understand how radiation breaks down over time.

The Result

The infographic appeared in the very successful "Fukushima and the Ocean" issue of Oceanus magazine—now in its second printing.
