- Professors from NC State's Department of Nuclear Engineering gave a symposium yesterday on the events at Fukushima, including an analysis of what happened and potential health consequences, as well as a Q&A from the audience. The entire symposium is now available for public viewing (no login required).
- The University of Wisconsin-Madison gave a similar forum, which is also available online.
- MIT's Department of Nuclear Engineering also gave a forum available on the web, although this was earlier in the timeline (and thus the information is likely less up-to-date).
Each of these presentations was designed to engage and inform the general public about the events which have occurred at Fukushima, including a specific explanation of what we understand to have happened so far from the perspective of experts and ultimately what is being done now to bring the situation under control. The advantage of these types of seminars is that the offer the ability to convey more detailed explanations of the specific sequences of events that lead to the current situation which are typically not available in traditional media accounts.
