Nuclear Accidents, Weapons Fallout and Sellafield Discharges: What are the Environmental Impacts?
Dr Michael D. Wood, University of Salford
During the 20th century, the early positive public perception of radioactivity was transformed following the use of nuclear weapons in Japan and nuclear accidents, such as the Chernobyl accident in 1986. ‘Nuclear is bad’ became the common public perception and the path to decommissioning was set.
However, in the 21st century, climate change drivers and concerns over energy supply have led to a nuclear renaissance internationally. As we move into this period of nuclear renaissance, in the shadow of the recent events in Fukushima, there is heightened public awareness of the potential risks from the nuclear sector.
So, what are the sources of radioactivity in the environment? How can we assess environmental impact and to what extent has the nuclear legacy impacted on the environment? In this Seminar we will explore these questions and uncover some of the unexpected environmental benefits of our nuclear past.
If you wish to receive seminar abstracts each week by e-mail, please ask to be added to the EGS Seminar Mailing List by contacting Daphne Lai at D.Lai@mmu.ac.uk. Thanks.
