Nuclear Seminar Series: The Fukushima Accident: From 2011 to 2111
Dr Rob Malkin – Dept. of Mechanical Engineering
Pugsley Lecture Theatre, Queen’s Building
Dr Malkin is one the few UK scientists to have visited the site post-accident. He has close working links with many of the organisations tasked with the decommissioning and is regularly updated on progress and challenges by Japanese colleagues.
This talk will cover the events leading up to the accident, the current status of the site and the future roadmap to recovery. Recent findings from robotic investigations of the site will be presented and future missions into highly radioactive areas discussed.
