Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Incident (ANALYSIS)

A video transcoded & edited by yrs. truly, from the EXCELLENT powerpoint presentation originally done by Dr. Matthias Braun, March 29, 2011, under AREVA's umbrella, that (h/t Corporanon, again) came to my attention in a post over at the Energy From Thorium weblog,

From the introduction by Kirk Sorensen. 

Ever since the earthquake and tsunami struck the Fukushima-Daiichi reactor site in Japan, many of us nuclear bloggers have struggled to get good and consistent information on the event, and even more so in a form that is easy to depict and convey.


Yesterday I was sent this absolutely outstanding presentation done by... engineer Dr. Matthias Braun, and I have found it to be a very easy to follow description of what took place at Fukushima-Daiichi and its implications. I saw no markings on the presentation listing it as “proprietary” ...

Please take a look and study the sequence of events to gain a better understanding of what happened at Fukushima-Daiichi and what it’s consequences might be.

    by which i mean, thank you very very much. that comment came to me with excellent timing. oh and insofar as that was a thank you, you are welcome.

    while we are on the subject of radiation (we were?) and by extension, the Bomb (were we?!) under whose shadow i have lived my life sometimes in fear (ah! you mean if we were...), you may appreciate this poem i wrote to a beautiful soul, role-model, and inspiration of mine, on the subject, as well as this, from back when i used to have recurring nuclear nightmares...
