IAEA Posts New Fukushima Daiichi Status Report

Radiation Warning Sign

The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) has published its latest status report in the aftermath of the Fukushima Daiichi radiological disaster. Entitled, “Fukushima Daiichi Status Report, 23 February 2012” , the ten page brief covers developments within the affected reactors, cooling water flow to the reactors and temperatures in the spent fuel pools. Equal attention is also paid to conditions outside of the plant, including the status of environmental remediation activities for the “Deliberate Evacuation Area and the Restricted Area” and current status of evacuation zones. Included tables provide estimates as to the external radiation doses received by local residents in the first four months following the accident and levels of radiation recorded via the monitoring of foodstuffs.
