The timely and appropriate implementation of short-term countermeasures, such as sheltering, evacuation and iodine prophylaxis, can, in case of a nuclear emergency with a release of radioactive material, considerably reduce the doses to the public in the vicinity of the nuclear. The Implementation of Short Term Countermeasures After a Nuclear Accident (Stable Iodine, Sheltering and Evacuation) English: INEX‑1: An International Nuclear Emergency Exercise: English | Français: Off-Site Nuclear Emergency Exercises / Exercises d'application hors site des plans d'urgence en cas d'accident nucléaire: Bilingual. Efficiency of Various Strategies of Short Term Countermeasures in Case of a Severe Nuclear accident. F. Charpin, H. Mansoux Institute of Protection and Nuclear Safety (IPSN) BP n°6, F- Fontenay-aux-Roses, France INTRODUCTION In case of a severe nuclear accident at PWR plants, countermeasures should be initiated in the short term. The accident at the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant that resulted from the Great East Japan Earthquake of Ma , involved the dispersion and spread of radioactive materials, and thus from both the political and economic perspectives, the accident became not only an issue for Japan itself.

The book describes modern decision aiding technologies and environmental decision support systems for remediation planning and optimization. Several case studies, demonstrating remediation success including radiation and radiological accidents and nuclear test sites are presented and evaluated. As can be observed in Figure 1, the results show that there was a low focus on preparedness and a high focus on crisis response and recovery/ the first 5 weeks, the main focus was on crisis response. Around Week 6, the main focus shifted to the recovery/evaluation phase, although in the first week after the accident already around 30% of the articles focused on the recovery. The fifth anniversary of the accident at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant and the 30th anniversary of the accident at the Chernobyl nuclear power plant both occurred in Both incidents were classified as major accidents at Level 7, the highest on the IAEA– Nuclear Energy Agency International Nuclear and Radiological Event Scale. Defence in depth (DiD) is a concept that has been used for many years alongside tools to optimise nuclear safety in reactor design, assessment and regulation. The Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant accident raised many questions and gave unique insight into nuclear safety issues File Size: 1MB.
