Fukushima 2015 White Paper

Developments since the 2013 UNSCEAR Report on the levels and effects of radiation exposure due to the nuclear accident following the great east-Japan earthquake and tsunami

A 2015 White Paper to guide the Scientific Committee's future programme of work

This White Paper is part of the Committee's ongoing effort to systematically monitor and evaluate new information that has emerged since the launch of its 2013 Report on the Fukushima-Daiichi accident. It presents a sound analysis of relevant, new scientific information from October 2012 to December 2014, to identify whether it materially affected conclusions of that report or if it addressed research needs that had been identified. About 80 publications were reviewed by an expert group and the 2013 Report's conclusions were borne out. The thematic areas covered were: releases and dispersion for the atmosphere and marine environment; evaluations of doses for the public and workers; health implications for the workers and the public; and doses and effects for non-human biota.
