On March 11, 2011, a magnitude 9.0 earthquake struck the northeast coast of Japan, followed by a roughly 10-meter tsunami that inundated the coast. Following the initial events, multiple loss of cooling incidents at the nuclear reactors at the Fukushima Daiichi power plant has caused an ongoing crisis.
On March 29, a panel of experts from academia, the national laboratory community, industry, and radiological emergency response will discuss the earthquake- and tsunami-caused nuclear reactor accident(s) at the Fukushima Daiichi power plant near Sendai, Japan.
