Tass Statement on Chernobyl Accident. Chernobyl Disaster - World Nuclear Association. (Updated June 2016) The Chernobyl accident in 1986 was the result of a flawed reactor design that was operated with inadequately trained personnel.

The resulting steam explosion and fires released at least 5% of the radioactive reactor core into the atmosphere and downwind – some 5200 PBq (I-131 eq). Two Chernobyl plant workers died on the night of the accident, and a further 28 people died within a few weeks as a result of acute radiation poisoning. UNSCEAR says that apart from increased thyroid cancers, "there is no evidence of a major public health impact attributable to radiation exposure 20 years after the accident.

" Resettlement of areas from which people were relocated is ongoing. National Review. With the continuing earthquakes in Japan, the eventual cost of the disaster at the Fukushima power plant may not be known for years.

National Review

The world should have all those affected in their prayers. But one thing we can know right now is that the Fukushima disaster and what happened at Chornobyl 25 years ago today are comparable only according to the narrow parameters of the International Nuclear and Radiological Event Scale (INES). By this scale, the Fukushima event was a Level 7, a “major accident” “with widespread health and environmental effects,” the same rating as Chornobyl. But it would be a serious mistake not to appreciate the differences between the two events, or to forget the genuine evil revealed in the Soviet Union’s response to Chornobyl.

The distinctions matter. Systemic Soviet corruption started affecting Chornobyl long before that April day in 1986. There were offers of assistance and aid from, among others, the United States and American volunteer organizations. Soviet Announces Nuclear Accident at Electric Plant.

Backgrounder on Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant Accident

Tjernobyl-ulykken. Af journalist Karina Søby Madsen, iBureauet/Dagbladet Information. 2006.

Tjernobyl-ulykken

Lørdag den 26. april 1986 eksploderede reaktor nummer fire på atomkraftværket ved byen Tjernobyl i det tidligere Sovjetunionen. Med et blev mange års frygt til virkelighed. Ulykken havde katastrofale konsekvenser. Mange mennesker døde på grund af radioaktiv forurening, og der er sket en kraftig stigning i antallet af kræftramte - eksempelvis viser et schweizisk studie en stigning på 40 procent indenfor alle kræfttyper i Hviderusland fra 1990’erne til 2000.

Faunaen er markant ændret, og i dag, 20 år efter, kæmper man stadig med eftervirkningerne af ulykken. Byen ligger forladt hen som en spøgelsesby, hvor kun rammerne er tilbage: biler, beklædningsgenstande og bamser. Chernobyl Accident 1986 - World Nuclear Association.

"Resettlement of areas from which people were relocated is ongoing. In 2011 Chernobyl was officially declared a tourist attraction. Tjernobyl 30 år efter: Vi kender stadig ikke helbredsmæssige risici ved en atomulykke - Forskerzonen. Videoen, optaget vha. en drone, giver et indblik i, hvordan området omkring Tjernobyl-kraftværket ser ud i dag.

Tjernobyl 30 år efter: Vi kender stadig ikke helbredsmæssige risici ved en atomulykke - Forskerzonen

(Video: Danny Cooke). 5 år efter atomulykken i Fukushima og 30 år efter Tjernobyl-ulykken er forskerne er stadig uenige om ulykkernes helbredseffekter. Der er stærkt delte meninger om, hvor mange kræfttilfælde ulykkerne har forårsaget, og hvor farlige eksklusionszonerne er i dag. Beboerne i Fukushima kan stadig ikke vende tilbage til deres hjem, hvis de ligger inden for eksklusionszonen. Og Pripjat i Ukraine er i dag en spøgelsesby, der langsomt, men sikkert, er ved at blive opslugt af vegetationen. Selvom eksperter for nyligt udtalte, at områderne omkring ulykkesstederne ikke er så farlige som tidligere antaget, er mange videnskabsfolk stadig bekymrede for de store mængder radioaktive isotoper, der er akkumuleret i planter og dyr og især fisk og skaldyr. Vi bliver udsat for stråling i alle døgnets timer Selv en banan indeholder en dosis på 0.08 mSv. Chernobyl 10 years on - An Assessment by the NEA Committee on Radiation Protection and Public Health, November 1995.

2002 Update of Chernobyl: Ten Years On The international radiological protection community performed a major status review of the situation around the damaged Chernobyl reactor on the 10-year anniversary of the accident.

Since then, studies of the accident site and the contaminated territories continue to be undertaken, which have yielded new scientific results and highlighted important social and health aspects. This report is a complete update of the NEA's earlier publication, Chernobyl: Ten Years On. Assessments of the Chernobyl accident - UNSCEAR. UNSCEAR's assessments of the radiation effects Summary The accident at the Chernobyl nuclear reactor that occurred on 26 April 1986 was the most serious accident ever to occur in the nuclear power industry.

The reactor was destroyed in the accident and considerable amounts of radioactive material were released to the environment. The accident caused the deaths, within a few weeks, of 30 workers and radiation injuries to over a hundred others. In response, the authorities evacuated, in 1986, about 115,000 people from areas surrounding the reactor and subsequently relocated, after 1986, about 220,000 people from Belarus, the Russian Federation and Ukraine.
