Fukushima Daiichi Accident Study Information Portal

The accident at the Fukushima nuclear power station in Japan is one of the most serious in commercial nuclear power plant operating history. As its story unfolds, much will be learned that may be applicable to the U.S. reactor fleet, nuclear fuel cycle facilities, and supporting systems, and may be relevant to the international reactor fleet. For example, lessons from Fukushima may be applied to emergency response planning, reactor operator training, accident scenario modeling, human factors engineering, radiation protection, and accident mitigation; as well as influence U.S. policies towards the nuclear fuel cycle including power generation, spent fuel storage, reprocessing, and disposal.

The NRC and DOE NE have agreed to jointly sponsor an accident reconstruction study. The study team will include subject matter experts from Idaho National Laboratory (INL), Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL), and Sandia National Laboratories (SNL).

The intent of this portal is to provide an approach to collecting, storing, retrieving, and validating information and data for use in reconstructing the Fukushima accidents and to assist the other team members by providing support for the technical basis behind the event reconstruction.
