The International Atomic Energy Agency on 7 September 2012 launched a database of radiation measurements collected in Japan following last year’s accident at the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station of Tokyo ElectricPower Company (TEPCO). The Fukushima Monitoring Database – available to all IAEA member states and the public – provides radiation measurements collected both near and far from the power plant since the Fukushima Daiichi accident began on 11 March 2011.

Prepared by the IAEA’s Incident and Emergency Centre (IEC), the database enables analysts to both search and download such data as dose rate measurements and environmental samples including leaves, water, and soil. The information was collected as part of the IAEA’s role in implementing theConvention on Early Notification of a Nuclear Accident, under which Japan has been providing the IEC with information about the Fukushima Daiichi accident. Following the accident, the IEC regularly summarized this information in itsStatus Updates to Member States and the public, and now the database provides Member States and the public with access to the data that was previously summarized. The IEC will continue to update the database with additional radiation monitoring information it has received from Japan.

“This new database consolidates a large amount of radiological monitoring information into a useful, effective tool for studying the effects of the Fukushima accident,” said Denis Flory, IAEA Deputy Director General for Nuclear Safety and Security. “I’m grateful for the strong support from the Japanese Government to make available this invaluable resource to scientists and the public around the world.”
