Abstract

The radionuclide emission risk assessment is very important to mitigate the impact of a nuclear accident. Based on the experience in Chernobyl, we evaluated risks in Fukushima exclusion zone for long term management using remote sensing and empirical radionuclide data. The possible emission of plant-accumulated radionuclide is incorporated into the known models for wildfire ignition and spread. Satellite data acquiring enables continuous monitoring of wildfire hazard.
