NPP Fukushima Daiichi

Fukushima Daiichi - Drop in Water Levels
On February 18, as parameters, such as primary containment vessel water levels and temperature, were being monitored, the Unit 1 primary containment vessel experienced a drop in water level.
As a result, other parameters were checked and it was found that some of the temperature gauges in the primary containment vessels for Unit 1 and Unit 3 have been showing decreasing trends since February 15 and February 17, respectively.
Therefore, we have been assessing related parameters since February 18, and today February 19 we determined that water levels in the Unit 1 and Unit 3 primary containment vessels are decreasing.
Furthermore, since no significant fluctuations...

Fukushima brings together Tokyo, Seoul and Beijing
Some commentators like to use arithmetic to compare various international organizations. If we add up the annual GDP of China (the world's second largest economy), Japan (the third largest economy) and South Korea (whose GDP is nothing to sneeze at) and compare the sum to the GDPs of the G8, which also includes Japan...nothing will happen. This is a senseless exercise because regional and international organizations are not created to flex muscles - economic or otherwise.
The GA is merely a top-level forum for discussing and regulating the ongoing formation of a common economic space in this part of the world. ASEAN performs a similar function in Southeast Asia. The purpose of these organizations is completely clear. The G8, meanwhile, appears no longer to serve a purpose.
But the GA is a special case. There are few organizations in the world where the members have such long-standing animosity toward one another. For example, while Japanese Prime Minister Naoto Kan, his Chinese counterpart Wen Jiabao and South Korean President Lee Myung-bak have agreed on new plans for cooperation.

INTERVIEW

Vladimir Kriventsev

Vladimir Kriventsev
The International Atomic Energy Agency brings together the fast reactor and related fuel cycle community and countries and the wider public interested in these technologies by organising the International Conference on Fast Reactors and Related Fuel Cycles: Sustainable Clean Energy for the Future or FR21.


OPINION

Victor Murogov

Victor Murogov
This critical analysis of the history, state, and prospects of development of modern nuclear technologies shows that nuclear energy market has practically monopolized the design and construction of only one type of reactors (95% of NPPs under construction use pressurized water reactors), which necessitates training of focused specialists involved in the construction and operation of those nuclear power plants.
