ANS releases report on Fukushima Daiichi

Almost one year after the earthquake and tsunami in Japan, the American Nuclear Society (ANS) on March 8 released its report on the disaster at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant.

Following the disaster, ANS formed a special committee to examine the events at Fukushima. The American Nuclear Society Special Committee on Fukushima was charged to  provide a clear explanation of the accident events, health physics, and accident cleanup. The committee was also charged with finding any safety-related issues that may emerge.

The nine-person committee used publically available sources from the Japanese nuclear industry and government. The committee worked on the report from May 2011 to December 2011, but since the situation is ongoing, the committee will continue to update the information as needed.
