Key Features

  • 2013 PROSE Award winner in Environmental Science from the Association of American Publishers
  • Covers atmospheric and marine radioactivity, providing information on the global atmospheric dispersion of radionuclides in the atmosphere and world oceans
  • Examines radiation doses to the public and biota to understand the health risks to the public and ecosystems
  • Provides information on monitoring radionuclides in the environment - information on sources of radionuclides, their temporal and spatial variations, and radionuclide levels
  • Covers transport of radionuclides from different sources (e.g. nuclear power plants) as well as atmospheric simulations and modeling approaches

Description

Fukushima Accident presents up-to-date information on radioactivity released to the atmosphere and the ocean after the accident on the Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear power plant, on the distribution of radionuclides in the world atmosphere and oceans, and their impact on the total environment (man, fauna, and flora). The book will evaluate and discuss the post-Fukushima situation, emphasizing radionuclide impacts on the terrestrial and marine environments, and compare it with the pre-Fukushima sources of radionuclides in the environment. The authors’ results, as well as knowledge gathered from the literature, will provide up-to-date information on the present status of the topics. Fukushima Accident is based on the environmental and nuclear research; however, the presentation will be suitable for university-level readers.

Quotes and reviews

"If someone is looking for a summary of what is known about the radionuclide releases from the Fukushima accident, this book would be a good starting point."--Health Physics,September 2014

"This study investigates the impact of radioactivity released into the environment after the accident at the Fukushima Dai-ichi Nuclear Power Plant in Japan in 2011. It considers impacts on the terrestrial and marine environments, looking at the past and present sources of environmental radioactivity, with a focus on global fallout and the Chernobyl accident, and their impact on the Pacific Ocean;…"--ProtoView.com, April 2014
"The book thus represents an overview of the most important publications and research concerning the radioactive environmental contamination that occurred in the 20th and in the beginning of the 21st centuries. It brings to the reader useful, reliable and thoroughly selected information on the previous levels and current situation in the field."--Journal of Environmental Radioactivity, December 27, 2013
