Video Report:The IAEA project to assist Japan’s Marine Monitoring Plan off the coast of TEPCO’s Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station

post date : 2017.09.28

With a view to assisting the Government of Japan in its objective of making the Sea Area Monitoring Plan comprehensive, credible and transparent, the IAEA, upon request from the Japanese Government and through its Environment Laboratories, conducted a project for testing the quality of data collected by Japanese laboratories in seawater, sediment and fish off the coast of TEPCO’s Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station.


The project, conducted between 2014 and 2016, involved 10 laboratories, including 3 laboratories outside of Japan. Joint campaigns to collect seawater, sediment and fish samples were undertaken. The collected samples were subsequently analysed in each participating laboratory and the results were compared. The FPCJ invited Mr. David Osborn, Director, Environment Laboratories, IAEA, to talk about the related report released in July this year.
