Special scientific session on “Fukushima Crisis: Air & Sea Transport Modeling”

An upcoming special session at the 15th Annual George Mason University Conference on Atmospheric Transport and Dispersion Modeling will focus on the Fukushima nuclear power plant crisis.  On the schedule are scientists from NRC, DTRA, NRL, NOAA, Japan Atomic Energy Agency, Japan Agency for Marine-Earth Science and Technology, University of Toulouse, French Institute for Radioprotection and Nuclear Safety, and Joint Research Centre/European Commission, among others.  The scientific content will mainly concern the modeling of local (Japan) pathways of transport and dispersion of radioisotopes.  The morning will address the coastal ocean and groundwater while the afternoon will cover the atmosphere.

Update: The special session was successful and highly informative.  We are currently writing up a summary of the special session for the Bulletin of the American Meteorological Society.
