Five years after the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant accident – what has been the impact on the environment, human bodies, and society?

福島第一原子力発電所事故から5年―自然環境、人体、そして社会への影響

Fukushima


11th March, 2016 marks five years since the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant accident. During these years, researchers from all over the world have been conducting extensive studies looking into the effect of the accident on the environment, human bodies, and our society. In honor of their great work, Oxford University Press offers 30 research articles about the accident to read free online for a year.

2016年3月11日で、福島第一原子力発電所事故発生から5年を迎えます。この5年間世界中の研究者が、自然環境・人体・そして社会への影響を研究してきました。これらの研究に敬意を表し、オックスフォード大学出版局は、福島第一原発事故に関する学術論文30編を、1年間オンラインで無料公開いたします。
