An explosion at the nuclear reactor caused deadly radiation to be released into the atmosphere for >10days. Ten years ago in 2011 another nuclear power plant, at Fukushima, Japan was badly damaged by a tsunami and radioactive fallout occurred.
discuss the deterministic and stochastic effects of radiation following the acute whole body irradiation experienced by rescuers and firemen after the Chernobyl explosion;
briefly discuss the deterministic and stochastic effects of radiation experienced by the population living nearby Chernobyl and within the area of fallout.
give a brief update on the situation at Fukushima,
 discussing the effects on the environment and population surrounding the powerplant; and the long-term possible effects on the rescue workers and nuclear power plant operators who were involved with the clean-up at
