Lab and Japan Atomic Energy Agency Reach Nuclear-Related Agreement

Earlier this month, Berkeley Lab and the Japan Atomic Energy Agency reached a long-term agreement to collaborate on developing methodologies for evaluating the impact of geologic disposal on the living, surface environment, and on developing environmental safety science, starting this summer. The agreement culminated a successful trip to Japan by a group of 10 Lab-UC Berkeley scientists. The last day of the trip coincided with the three-year anniversary of the magnitude-9.0 earthquake off the east coast of Japan; a workshop involving the group was stopped at 2:46 p.m. for a moment of silence to commemorate the disaster victims.
