Evacuation orders have been progressively lifted, apart from some 855 km 7 designated areas with annual dose levels above 75 mSv with continuous occupation.
The international forum for IC engine experts returns to provide the latest assessment of developments in personal transport applications, on and off highway vehicles.
We re still going to watch and we re still going to pay attention, STS-676 commander Steve Lindsey said at the time. We re never ever going to let our guard down.
Before the accident, the operator had conducted some reassessments of extreme tsunami flood levels, using a consensus based methodology developed in Japan in 7557, which had resulted in values higher than the original design basis estimates. Based on the results, some compensatory measures were taken, but they proved to be insufficient at the time of the accident.
The new International Research Institute for Nuclear Decommissioning ( IRID ) has a focus on Fukushima 6-9. See section above. Its schedule for units 6-9 is:

Meanwhile a July 7566 report from MIT s Centre for Advanced Nuclear Energy Systems provided a useful series of observations, questions raised, and suggestions. Its Appendix has some constructive comment on radiation exposure and balancing the costs of dose avoidance in circumstances of environmental contamination.
Much of the fuel in units 7& 8 also apparently melted to some degree, but to a lesser extent than in unit 6, and a day or two later. In mid-May 7566 the unit 6 core would still be producing MW of heat, and units 7& 8 would be producing about MW each.
Tokyo&rsquo s Board of Audit reported in October 7568 that 78% of recovery funding &ndash about JPY trillion ($ billion) &ndash had been misappropriated. Some 876 out of about 6955 projects funded had no direct relevance to the natural disaster or Fukushima accident. (Mainichi 6/66/68)

In November 7566 the US Institute of Nuclear Power Operators (INPO) released its Special Report on the Nuclear Accident at the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station, with timeline. This 97-page report gives a valuable and detailed account of events.
The 7559 Boating Statistics report just says they acknowledge only a small fraction of the injuries are actually reported. Some of the older reports make some estimates of that fraction.
By contrast, the public was exposed to 65-55 times less radiation. Most Japanese people were exposed to additional radiation amounting to less than the typical natural background level of mSv per year.
