Many years have passed since the accident at the Fukushima-1 nuclear power plant. During this time hundreds of works regarding the event were published. Altogether they present fairly detailed and reliable picture of what happened, but much has not yet been properly explained. The questions cause not only technical aspects, but also the expediency, timeliness and effectiveness of some organizational solutions. In this regard, it is especially important to come to an understanding of what strategic errors caused the unfavorable scenario of the accident development.

The original task of the authors of this book was the collection and analysis of information essential for an adequate assessment of the events that occurred. Accordingly, critical analysis of a large array of data and model calculation results of emergency processes at the Fukushima-1 NPP was carried out; data related to dynamics of the radiation situation evolution, assessments and forecasts of radiological and socio-economic consequences of the accident were analyzed. Analysis of the safety system operation and failures for the Fukushima-1 NPP and accident management measures is given. The critical tasks to improve the adiation emergency preparedness are formulated.
Annex 1 and Appendix 2 to this book presents the results of operational forecasts and estimates of the radiation and radiological consequences of the accident at the Fukushima-1 nuclear power plant and summarizes the operational response experience of the IBRAE RAN Science and Technology Support Center to the event.
The book is written in a simple, understandable language, and will be of interest not only to specialists in the field of nuclear energy safety, but also to a wide range of readers.
