About CRiED

CRiEDform2

Massive earthquake hit northeast Japan on March 11, 2011, causing gigantic tsunami that damaged the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant.
A large amount of Gamma-emitting radionuclide were released into its surrounding area and circulated globally with atmospheric diffusion process.
Sometime has been passed since the Fukushima nuclear disaster, the study of environmental radionuclides transfer and dynamics estimation become very urgent.
Working on those problems ensures safety of people and their lives and also we must be responsible to the world as a country which scattered radioactive materials all over the world.
 
Each department of CRiED has been working on isotopes and environmental dynamics for many years and we perform a interdisciplinary study both domestically and internationally by making use of our research, techniques and knowledge.
 


 

Introduction

The Great eastern Japan earthquake and huge tsunami triggered the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant accident.
The nuclear plant lost their power and function and it released a large amount of radionuclides with a change of the climatic condition.
 
Sometime has been passed, studying the long-term environmental dynamics estimation will become more urgent to ensure the safety of people and their lives as well as clarifying the contamination such as environment, farm products and drinking water.
In other words the focus of the study shifts to radionuclides transfer processes in environment.
 
As Japanese government, Nuclear Emergency Response Headquarters has been carrying out the detailed investigation by “the environmental monitoring reinforcement plan” (established on 4/22/2011) for accumulation and transfer process of radionuclides and also soil from the need of continuous practice.
In addition, from the viewpoint of general evaluation of the influence in surrounding area, they investigate environmental dynamics in details and aim at establishing a comprehensive transfer model of radionuclides.
 
As University of Tsukuba, we have been striving for environmental transfer of radionuclides and associating with the international organization such as IAEA by the project “FMWSE” of MEXT special coordination funds for promoting science and technology 2012 (Prof.Onda), a radioactive material investigation by the radiochemistry (Associate Prof. Sueki) and explanation of the influence on humanbody and environment in cooperation with suffering cities, towns and villages(Prof. Matsumoto).
University of Tsukuba had Terrestrial Environment Research Center that had studied the transfer of atmosphere, water, and the soil which will be essential to a future radiation environmental assessment.
From an interdisciplinary point of view, the future environmental transfer of radionuclides from the Fukushima NPP will be able to perform comprehensive research by concentrating their knowledge.
 

We, Center for Research in Isotopes and Environmental Dynamics at University of Tsukuba where experts and specialized teams gathered, will get over this urgent and unprecedented problems using all our resources.
