Nuclear Accidents: Chernobyl Revisited, May 2011

Edited by C. Herb Ward

This virtual issue on the ecological effects of radiation and hazardous materials in the environment focused on the Chernobyl accident is being published by SETAC as a freely accessible resource to inform public and private sectors on the potential impacts of the March 11 earthquake, tsunami, and subsequent nuclear accident in Fukushima, Japan. Watch for new articles on radiation in the environment publishing in the July issue of IEAM!
