Reate a set of instructions about Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster
Create a set of instructions based on some aspect of your chosen research topic. For instance, I might create some instructions on protective measures for surrounding populations in the event of a nuclear incident. Be sure your instructions are original and in your own words. Also have at least 5 steps in your instructions. Use illustrations as appropriate. If you cut-and-paste illustrations from the web, indicate where they came from.
Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster: a Research Proposal
As a result of the March 11, 2011 magnitude 9.0 Tohoku earthquakes, the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant suffered severe equipment failures that caused a series of fire in the plant leading to the release of radioactive materials in the atmosphere.
Given the amount of radioactive material released at Fukushima nuclear power plant after the earthquake, the crisis level has been elevated to Level 7 nuclear crisis similar to the Chernobyl disaster. Japanas Nuclear and Industrial Safety Agency and the Nuclear Safety Commission estimated the total amount of radioactive materials emitted to be at 370,000 TBq and 630,000 TBq which was beyond the threshold of a level 7 nuclear crisis as classified by the International Nuclear and Radiological Event Scale (International Atomic Energy Agency).
Such, this research will investigate the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster given the severity of the crisis which is comparable to the Chernobyl nuclear disaster. The comparison will be based on the events that triggered the accident, total amount of radioactive materials released and the economic and health implication of the accident.
In order to have a general overview of the crisis, sources of information will be derived from major news agencies such as the British Broadcasting Corporation, Voice of America, and Kyodo News and websites of the Tokyo Electric Power Company, International Atomic Energy Agency and the Official United Nation Chernobyl website as well as online encyclopedias such as Wikipedia and Encyclopedia Britannica. Thereafter, a research will be made for published scholarly articles in academic peer-reviewed books, and journals by using Google Scholar. Finally, sources for more information from the OhioLink Library, through the Carlson Library web page will also be utilized.
The search for information is expected to take a week and this will be followed by another week of writing, proofreading and editing.
