Assistant Professor Benjamin Monreal, UCSB Department of Physics, will give an overview of radioactivity and reactors, radiation health and safety, and the ultimate fate of the materials coming out of the stricken reactors in Fukushima.

Why is it worse than Three Mile Island? Why is it (probably) not as bad as Chernobyl? How worried are scientists? How worried should you be?

The lecture will be followed by a Q&A session with a panel including Theo Theofanous, Professor of Chemical and of Mechanical Engineering, and Patrick McCray, Professor of History, both of UCSB.

If you want an introduction to radiation, nuclear reactors, and what is happening at Fukushima then this presentation is a must watch.

Thanks.

Thanks for the FYI Cobzz. I found this one slide to be quite informative Radioactive Half Lives "to watch out for" if you happen to be near a meltdown zone and also this one that you sent me Radioactive Decay Process of Nuclear Fuel Rods
